Winter Tales 2017

 In the UK

THE CHIMES

A fairytale of hard times by Charles Dickens


A match seller by John Leighton 1851
A new adaptation for 2017





In this performance Sam Weller comes out of retirement (from ‘The Pickwick Papers’) and takes you on an irreverent journey through the London streets to tell you the stories of the people he meets. 

Written the year after ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘The Chimes’ again uses a fairytale with wonderfully contrasted characters to highlight the divide between rich and poor. It tells the story of the poor man Toby Veck (a street porter) and his daughter Meg (a seamstress). 

It is a moving and heartwarming tale.

It is only autumn but, Christmas is coming... So here's a little something to look forward to at what Charles Dickens thought the best time of the year.


HAMBURG 2016

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

The ghosts of Christmas, Past, Present and Future visit Scrooge the old miser, and show him a series of visions, as he was, as he is now, and as he will be. The result of this is that Scrooge changes his life. A wonderful performance.
In den Weihnachtsnächten erscheinen dem alten Geizhals Scrooge die Geister der Vergangenheit, der Gegenwart und der Zukunft. Sie zeigen ihm, wie er als kleiner Junge war, wie er heute ist und wie er enden wird, wenn er weiterlebt wie bisher. Der Blick in die verschiedenen Welten verändert Scrooge nachhaltig. Der Storyteller Robert MacCall lässt auf lebendige Weise die Dicken'sche Weihnachtsgeschichte vor Ihren Augen erstehen.
Sonderangebot für Sprachkurse und Schulklassen: SprachschülerInnen (jeden Alters) dürfen zum ermäßigten Preis kommen, ab vier SchülerInnen darf ein/e LehrerIn gratis mit - nur mit Anmeldung bei rika.tjakea@kulturhaus-eppendorf.de. Schulklassen und größere Gruppen, z.B. Englisch-Stammtische dürfen gern nach Gruppenpreisen fragen.

Vollmondnacht

Feinslieb & Robert MacCall: Englische Stories und Lieder


On this full moon evening I will be telling English folktales mostly about country fools or idiots, who usually get by in the end (does this tell us something about the national character?). Of course the heroes of the stories are not really idiots. Which reminds me of something I once heard in a radio interview; "If you want to find a fool in the countryside, you'd have to bring him there first." 


The stories will be beautifully enhanced by the songs and music of Feinslieb.

Das Duo FEINSLIEB begibt sich auf seinen musikalischen Pfaden weit in die Vergangenheit. Rika Tjakea (Gesang und Kleinigkeiten) und Fabio Malaguti (Gitarre, Bouzouki, Gesang) singen und spielen vorwiegend europäische Kunst- und Volkslieder vom Mittelalter über Renaissance und Barock bis ins 19. Jahrhundert.

Historisch unkorrekt und musikalisch erfrischend lebendig schweben FEINSLIEB mühelos zwischen Hochkultur und Unterhaltung, rasant oder gefühlvoll und nie kitschig. www.feinslieb.de

Heute gibt es ein englisches Programm von schönen alten Volksliedern bis hin zu Kunstlied-Klassikern von Thomas Morley und John Dowland. Dazu erzählt der Storyteller Robert MacCall Geschichten auf Englisch.

Die Abendkasse ist geöffnet ab 19.00 Uhr

September 25th 1915

Repeat Performance by Popular Demand

September 25th 1915  'Uncle Henry...'  The story of one man’s war. 
An old family snapshot: a sporty looking young man steps out into the sunlight with a cup of tea, he holds the saucer in both hands. They sometimes shake badly and he doesn't want the cup to rattle in the saucer and spill the tea. He is wearing a sweater under his jacket. It has been a cool summer and he feels the cold. The day is his 33rd birthday, Monday 30th August 1915. 26 days later he will be dead.
 
At the bottom of the photo one of his nieces has written; 'Uncle Henry...' It is their last photo of him.
He was my Great Uncle. This is the story of his life, and my journey to retrace his steps in 2014. It is also a universal story of a family touched by the tragedy of war.

Told in English.
