The Bear - theme regretSaturday, June 29, 2019 at 19:00: Stories of regret

Each month, The Bear storytelling hosts an event where people are invited to share stories centered around a certain theme. And each month, we’ll bring you some of our favorite stories from the evening.

These true, personal stories were recorded live at The Bear on May 16 at Ballhaus Berlin in Mitte. The theme of the evening was stories about regret: if I could turn back time. What you would change if you could, and maybe what you wouldn’t.

The storytellers featured in this show are Bear founder Dyane Neiman, David Mouriquand, Eva Göllner, Anna Bolster, Stephanie Liao, and Renko Pauwels. Illay Chester performs cello live.
