Der letzte Abend im April

A German telling of Korean writer Bang Jung Hwan’s story, The Last Evening of April.

To mark the centenary of the death Bang Jung Hwan, the founder of Children’s Day in Korea, the Korea International Storytellers’ Association (KISA) was part of a project to record this story in 14 languages.

I was asked to contribute the German version. I was also asked to introduce myself in English, so the story begins after a minute.



The video clips here are all amateur quality, shot in various theatres or, as here, in my home studio.

Their intention is just to show the range of my storytelling and give a flavour of a live performance.
