Edition DUR has succeeded in licensing the radio play "Woanders" by Diana Näcke, Masha Qrella and Christina Runge, based on texts by Thomas Brasch, for a limited edition of 500 copies on vinyl.

The radio play was created in 2021 and was produced for Deutschlandfunk Kultur. It was based on texts by Thomas Brasch from 1975 to 2002, from television conversations, the interview volume >>I only remember myself in chaos<< and the poetry collection >>Die nennen das Schrei<<. Masha Qrella has already released a song album with texts entitled "Woanders" on the Berlin label Staatsakt in February 2021, which also form an important part of the radio play as fragments and musical recordings.

Brasch's eventful and moving life story was honoured in the award-winning feature film "Lieber Thomas" in 2021. The radio play "Woanders" is a different kind of exploration, which is further honoured in the excellent liner notes by Berlin sculptor, painter, graphic artist, costume and set designer Alexander Polzin. Polzin, who created the grave sculpture for Brasch, writes: "It is one thing when a poet is talented enough for his poems to outlive him and continue to speak to us. It rarely happens that essays or commentary-like analyses of the period in which they were written remain interesting. Both apply to Thomas Brasch. In the audio piece "Woanders", Mascha, together with Diana Näcke and Christina Runge, has collaged such texts by Brasch to her music. Here we get an impression of how, in Brasch's perception, the one leads into the other - the analytical into the poetic and vice versa. Describing the world always means imagining a better one."

According to Polzin, this is particularly haunting because it can be heard in Brasch's own voice. An empathetic document that is only available on Edition DUR @ KulturManufaktur.
