We have a pair of tickets up for grabs for Friday’s event. To win send us an email at ticketgiveaway@kcrwberlin.org with the subject line BEAR! and your full name, before 12 p.m. on Friday, November 16. Winners will be notified by email. See below for terms and conditions. 

The Bear is Berlin’s favorite bilingual storytelling event. Real stories, told live. In honor of Berlin Science Week, Scientists take the stage: No slides, no jargons, no lab coats – just true, personal stories in English and German:

  • a specialist in genomics forgets to double-check her mountain climbing equipment;
  • a physicist struggles with a decision that will lead to fame or infamy;
  • an introverted chemist discovers heavy metal music;
  • a bat expert has to convince a machete-carrying tribe chief that she can keep up with the guys.

Although science shapes all of our lives, we rarely learn of the human elements, like the error and elation, involved in its making. A diverse cast of characters explore the topic of GRAVITY – encounters with uncontrollable forces, sometimes in the most unexpected ways.

Live music from the Slovakia-born composer, songwriter, multi-instrument talented Victoria Priest. She weaves the 8 stories into a musical whole, playing her underground ukulele songs to dramatic piano compositions. Show host and Bear founder, Dyane Neiman charms the audience into sharing a few anecdotes of their own.
