The Bear on KCRW Berlin: Water stories

todayOctober 31, 2020

Each month, we bring you our favorite stories from The Bear storytelling evenings.

These true, personal stories were recorded live at The Bear on September 18 at the Shakespeare Company’s open-air stage in Berlin. The theme of the evening was water: stories of buoyancy.

The storytellers featured in this episode are Alexander Wragge, Sylvia Schoeningh-Taylor, Mike Trupiano and Annie Voigt. Musician Florian Ruland 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.
