Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956): File, cumadóir amhrán, stiúrthóir amharclainne. Teanga fhórsúil dhíreach atá sna drámaí agus sna dánta aige agus teachtaireacht pholaitiúil go minic laistar díobh. Déanfaidh Amhráin ón Ré Dhorcha ceiliúradh ar an gcuid is fearr dá dhánta agus dá chuid amhrán, agus aistriúcháin ón mbun-Ghearmáinis le Aindrias Ó Cathasaigh (ón leabhar Chucu siúd a rugadh ina dhiaidh: Rogha Dánta) agus Gabriel Rosenstock. Is í Caitríona O'Leary a bheidh mar stiúrthóir ceoil ar an tionscadal agus, ar ndóigh, mar dhuine de na príomhoirfidigh ann. Cruthóidh Margaret Lonergan íomhánna scaileáin don seó. Stiúrtha ag Eric Fraad.

Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956) was a poet, playwright, songwriter and theatre director. His poetry and plays are marked by potent, direct language and their political engagement. Singing about the Dark Times celebrates the best of his poetry and songs, with his work translated into Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock and Aindrias Ó Cathasaigh. Caitríona O'Leary is musical director on the project, as well as being a core performer. Margaret Lonergan has created on-screen visuals. Theatrical direction by Eric Fraad. Produced by Liam Carson.

Presented in association with IMRAM Irish Language Literature Festival.
