    The Bear on KCRW Berlin: Paper stories Dina Elsayed

These true, personal stories were recorded live at The Bear on November 22 at ZENTRUM danziger50 in Prenzlauer Berg. The theme of the evening was paper and the extraordinary memories such an ordinary object can spark.

The storytellers featured in this episode are Ben McGuire, Galuh Rohmah, Fabienne Lang, Mike Trupiano, and Rachel Jennings. Berlin musician Felix Komoll performed live. Our show’s theme is “I Need Love,” remixed by D.J. Spector.

The Bear was created by Dyane Neiman and inspired by The Moth. If you would like to tell a story or attend the next Bear storytelling evening, check out the Bear storytelling’s event page.
