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.

 

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

Join us with or without a story.

Our new venue: Ballhaus Berlin


In the roaring 20s, Berlin's dance scene boomed with close to 500 dance halls, which only 5 remain today. Ballhaus Berlin is the oldest.

Over 100 years later, The Bear will now dance between theater and documentary, as we groove with the ancient art of storytelling. In these modern times, where we are bombarded with distractions and the anonymity of urban life - The Bear @ Ballhaus Berlin provides a home for us to laugh, wonder, and feel connected by our shared human experiences.

Here is an interesting interview with Christof Blaesius, the present owner of Ballhaus Berlin.
