The storytelling stage always begins with a professional stage teller. New every month, with selected guests, national or international, who present a current programme of about 50 minutes for the first time in Berlin. Click here for the next guest of the storytelling stage.

The storytelling stage is also an open stage for anyone who wants to tell stories: In the second part of the evening, everyone in the audience can tell something – regardless of whether the stories are traditional, self-experienced or self-invented. Anyone who wants to can tell, everyone else can listen and watch and be transported into other worlds. The stories should not be longer than 10 minutes and the order of the performances will be drawn.

And it continues at the bar, because it’s story time!

When? Every 3rd Friday of the month at 7:30 pm

Tickets? everyone pays what they can, up from 3 €.
So that we can continue to pay the bills of the storytelling stage, 10 € + more are recommended. read more
