Franziska Trischler & Mareike Tiede Sun, 29th March 2020, 5:00 pm Drop it. An evening with texts by Michael Ende Literature “Let go! Let yourself go!” But the protagonist does not. He can’t. Why not? Or perhaps the better question is: drop it – for what? Where fantasy dances over the rope, where walls crack – there we are in the middle of Michael Ende’s fantastic worlds, where people set off into the unknown. This evening is dedicated to the philosophical, less known, often very dark side of Michael Ende’s work, who would have turned 90 a few months ago. The speakers tell of all this with Michael Ende’s great lyrics as well as with singing, noise, a lot of dedication and humour. An intensive encounter with Rilke’s panther had such a strong effect that Mareike Tiede made the spoken word her profession. She designs spoken word programmes and works for BR and ORF. Franziska Trischler studied speech science and has been on stage with poetry and sound poetry since she could read. She is a member and founder of several speech and theatre ensembles.
