In a large port city, the story unfolds of an unusual friendship between a street child and a wild animal captured by poachers. The child is later forced to work as slave labour as a tailor in a textile factory under inhuman conditions.

Franziska Bauer and Silvia Freund bring two explosive globalisation issues – the extermination of animals and child labour – to the stage in German and present them in a linguistically playful way in this storytelling programme.


Franzi Bauer is a certified storyteller (UdK Berlin) and has worked since 2015 as a freelance storyteller in arts and education. In addition to her artistic activities within stage programmes, she also directs workshops in schools, gives guest seminars at universities, and offers professional development sessions for facilitators. Since 2018 she has also worked as a freelancer for ‘LesArt’, a children’s literature organisation in Berlin.


Silvia Freud was born in Tyrol/Austria. She studied acting (Bühnenreifeprüfung), singing, German and Romance languages and literature in Innsbruck and graduated with a Master’s degree. She then completed her Master of Arts in Theater Pedagogy at the UdK Berlin. Freund toured with dance theaters and independent ensembles in Europe and New York, participated in scenic concerts with Transalpin and was involved in CD productions of WirKindervomKleistpark.

Since 1997 she has been a lecturer in storytelling with adults/young people and in children’s projects. Her trainings take place in cooperation with theaters, universities and adult education centers (Theatertreffen der Jugend, UdK Berlin, Staatstheater Hannover) or with independent organizations (e.g. Verein ErzählKunst e.V.).

Since 2008, Silvia Freund has been a narrator in the senate-funded project ErzählZeit for elementary schools and daycare centers, and since 2017 she has been a certified narrator of the VEE (Verband der ErzählerInnen e.V.). In addition, she supervises musical literature programs for children with the reading agency Eventilator and is part of multilingual as well as cross-disciplinary storytelling tandems.
