When you’re a fish out of water you look for the nearest ocean.

We’re ending Season 4 with a splash: An evening of true, personal stories featuring all your Favorite Storytellers from the last 9 months.

A dance between documentary and theater, storytellers explore the evening's theme sometimes from the most unusually angles. The results are true personal stories that are sometimes poignant, sometimes, gripping, and always entertaining.

Felix Komoll accompanies the stories and picks up where they leave off with guitar and flute improvisations. Dyane Neiman charms the audience to tell a few anecdotes of their own.

The Bear. true stories. erzähltes leben.

Founded in 2015, The Bear has presented over 400 stories from ordinary Berliners sharing the extraordinary moments of their lives. We come as strangers, and leave somehow connected by our shared human experiences.

The Bear' is a non-profit event with the mission is to create a more compassionate community, where each story matters.
