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 26 at ZENTRUM danziger50 in Prenzlauer Berg. The evening marked the opening of The Bear’s fifth season and was presented in partnership with the social networking platform and dating app, Bumble. The theme of the evening was serendipity: stories of chance encounters.

The storytellers featured in this episode are Deep Dua, Allia Sadeghipour, Galina Fedulova, and Mike Trupiano. 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.
