Matthias Brandt & Jens Thomas


Matthias Brandt and Jens Thomas are sought-after regulars at the düsseldorf festival! The actor and author and the musician have developed the interplay of text performance and spontaneous piano improvisation to perfection. For the fourth time, the duo is coming to Düsseldorf with Matthias Brandts first novel "Blackbird". In it Brandt tells the story of 15-year-old Morten Schumacher, known as Motte, who gets a phone call after everything in his life changes. Because his best friend Bogi is suddenly very ill. But at the same time, Motte discovers love. "Blackbird" captures the atmosphere of the 1970s in the FRG and tells of love and friendship and the direct proximity of comedy and tragedy.
