The Storytelling evening „THE BEAR“

Meeet-Mitte: Friday, 21.09.2018 7:30pm (please find the German version of this storytelling evening here / die deutsche Version dieser Ankündigung ist hier):



The Bear – True Stories. Erzähltes Leben.

 The Start of the New Season! 

„The Bear is an incredibly inspiring, moving, funny, delightful evening.“
Khushi Pasquale, storyteller; June 17, 2016


Dessert for the Heart

The Bear is a monthly storytelling contest in Berlin. The stage is open for true stories, told live in both English and German languages. Live music and lively audience interaction give the evening a cozy and entertaining note.

The Bear celebrates the art of raconteur in a world that is drowning in information and starving for wisdom. We come together as strangers and somehow, leave connected by our shared human experience.

CHERISHED: stories of gratitude

„Tatsuya: What you have “right now” won’t necessarily continue on until forever…
Hiro: … Yeah, I know.”Ibuki Haneda, Koizora (Love Sky), Volume 1

Storytelling Abend "The Bear" zum Thema DankbarkeitWe are looking forward to starting off our fourth season of The Bear in September:

Absence makes the heart go fonder: your trusty old car that broke down, your savings account that is empty, a postcard from your pain-in-the-neck roommate, your glasses that you accidentally stepped on; fruits and flavors from back home; Oma’s cooking; Pop’s advice; heated sex & the heated arguments with your ex; traditions you love: Christmas trees, „Schul-Tuete“, Kaffe und Kuchen, Halloween; the people and places you love: Conrad, Connie, California. Chocolate chip cookies, kisses, cool breezes, chaos, quiet, sunshine, snow, satisfaction, mountains, meaning, Mom.

Tell us your 7-min conflict about the people, place, and things you cherish..



Musical guest: tba.

We have a musical guest at each of our The Bear events – please come back to this place to see the invitee for the coming event right here in a few days.
