Bear. A witness reports

Bär. Ein Zeitzeuge erzählt

Bär. Ein Zeitzeuge erzählt

When a teddy bear is over 100 years old, his eyes have already seen a whole lot. After all, his arms are all covered with patches from giving so many hugs. This teddy bear is named Bärchen. He has already seen very beautiful and very awful moments, for example, when the walls shook because of the bombs. Or when Irene’s grandmother was deported. Bärchen experienced all of that. Up until now, he has just listened, but now he is going to speak for himself. A piece of documentary object theater about persecution during the National Socialist dictatorship and about the intergenerational passing on of traumatic experiences, told from the point of view of a teddy bear.
