Berlin's favorite storytelling show: personal, true stories, told live in German & English.

Over 1000 thrilled listeners, 300 stories in 3 years.

THE BEAR promotes the ancient art of storytelling, which is relevant today more than ever before. Each story shines a light on the diversity and commonality of human experience. 

Be our next storyteller! Because if you have a story, we have a stage.


Every show is a dance between theater and documentary as storytellers tell true, personal stories without notes. Story topics are explored, sometimes in the most unusual ways, leaving the audience amused, intrigued, and often, enlightened. 

Our mission is to create a more compassionate community, where each story matters.

Join us with or without a story.
