The Radio Show

In a western society which is dominated by a never ending stream of visual input, and in which ´storytelling´ is being used as a trend word in the world of marketing, we wish to investigate and foster the essence of stories – using the mass medium that has been the oral storytelling format par excellence: radio.  

In collaboration with Colaboradio, as part of the www.88vier.de community radio project, we launched “STORY FOR FOOD The Radio Show” in September 2018.

This is a monthly live radio show dedicated to stories. Every month, we will broadcast stories from our audio archive and invite guests to share live on the air a story on the theme of the month.

The theme of December is "Love Stories" 

Our wish is to foster oral storytelling and help value stories in society, by promoting the practise of sharing them and the culture of listening to them

STORY INSTALLATION

LISTEN TO A STORY OF A STRANGER & RECORD YOUR STORY 

​​As part of building up our  #STORYAUDIOARCHIVE  we tour Berlin to record undocumented stories, stories that otherwise would be lost. The stories can be of any length, of any theme and in any language.

At the same time, we carry around our story listening installation, with a selection of stories from the #SFFAUDIOARCHIVE, so that you may have the possibility to listen to stories of strangers.

We heartily welcome all storytellers and story lovers.

Every month we choose different flea markets, cafés, cinemas, bookshops and theatres for our recordings. 

During this month (January 2018) ​our STORY INSTALLATION will be moving at:

TEE.SALON.IKI, Böckhstraße 50, Berlin Kreuzberg 10967

A chance to “taste your story”.

STORYTELLING & STORY-LISTENING : free workshop

#STORYFORFOOD offers a free workshop on STORYTELLING & STORY-LISTENING on Wednesdays @DuBeast (Innstr. 4, 12045 Neukölln) 

"After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the 

thing we need most in the world.” - Philip Pullman

HOW TO TELL & LISTEN TO STORIES 

We are our stories, the stories we are told and the stories we tell ourselves. We create stories to define our existence: “I tell a story therefore I exist, I exist because there are stories"

What are the stories that need to be told and need to be heard? What makes them unique? How we tell stories? Could we become more creative and constructive with our memories? How to become active listeners and listen effectively to the stories of others? What the stories of strangers have to teach us about ourselves? 

 

We shall explore basic elements of story-dramaturgy: beginning-middle-end, anticipation, change, tension, conflict, transformation, sympathy, contradictions, character inner motivations, line of emotions and relations, rhythm and timing. 

 

The workshop is open to everyone and aspires to create a group of oral storytelling. We hope to help participants acknowledge the importance of their stories, train their storytelling skills, explore personal and fictitious realities, and form stories out of their memories and imagination.

In the end, everyone is welcome to record a story as part of the STORY FOR FOOD initiative. The story can be true or fictitious, or true with fictitious elements, like a fictionalised memory etc.

 

The workshop is held by the playwrights Alexie Leonard and Christina Kyriazidi.

#STORYFORFOOD ♥ CINEMA

On Thursdays (19-22h) we are at the lovely IL KINO (Nansenstraße 22, 12047 Neukölln) and we heartily welcome any story teller and any story lover .. 

We offer one reduced cinema ticket (for the projections @20h and @22h) for every story ♥

>> REMEMBER: It is not an open mic. It is a private recording of your story and an introduction to the STORY FOR FOOD initiative. 

✿ The stories can be of any length, of any theme and in any language.

STORY LISTENING 

FOR A SELECTION OF ITALIAN STORIES 

STORY FOR FOOD for the first time, holds a story-listening event,

in the pre-opening party of the "COFFI Italian Interdisciplinary Festival"

where a selection of Italian stories will be made available anonymously for an intimate listening experience.

Sunday 27 August 2017

19h - Du BeastInnstr. 4, 12045 Berlin Neukölln

STORY TANDEM : love stories 

STORY FOR FOOD meets Berlin Spoken Word for a story-exchange experiment : an eye to eye experience with a stranger where you share a story on a specific theme.

We are our stories, the stories we are told and the stories we tell ourselves.
How do we share a story with a stranger?
What the stories of strangers have to teach us about ourselves?

Our wish is to bring people from different communities together through their stories. We aspire to find out how personal stories can become collective stories, how memories and imaginations of different people meet.

During the session the stories will be recorded as part of the STORY FOR FOOD audio library. The shared stories can be true or fictitious, or true with fictitious elements, like a fictionalised memory etc.

The event is open to everyone and the tandem couples will be selected by chance. Every couple will be given a private space for the story sharing experience for approximately 20m.
