Stories by Katinka Kraft – Music by Anke Wisch

Thursday, 30. June, 2022 20:00

This show connects the autobiogaphical story with the traditional to bring forththat which is political, personal and timeless, accompanied by violin and loop station.

From fairy gateways to raven wisdom, these stories weave themselves through the cobblestone streets of 80’s Berlin to the moss covered branches of the PacificNorthwest. As the tallest trees on earth hold each other steady underneath the ground, how does one find roots while being split between cultures, parents and continents?

Katinka Kraft is a storyteller and spoken word artist. With a background in spoken word and creative writing, Katinka fuses poetic awareness of image, rhythm and sound with the connective quality and immediacy of oral storytelling. Her work combines her memories of childhood, being German American, queer femme identity, and her attempts to find earth-bound truths worth digging her feet into.

Anke Wisch started playing the violin at the age of five. For more than half of her life she was part of Früchte des Zorns and has played with other political singer-songwriters. Since 2015, she has worked with stolen lyrics, voice, violin and loop station as Diebin. She is looking forward to using the voice of her instrument to express emotional landscapes interwoven with the stories of Katinka Kraft.
