Performance: Pursuing Criminals from Abidjan to Dar es Salaam – Radio Thrillers in Six Languages

When: 08.11.2019 20.00 Uhr

Where: Stadtbibliothek Köln

Journalists and presenters working for the Voice of Germany ( in Bonn and various African countries share experiences from their multilingual and diverse work with us, such as video and audio production and scenic readings. They give a highly entertaining insight in their work - for example how and where their exciting and popular radio thrillers are created and produced? How do ensembles and ambience vary?

The plots of the short radio thrillers, for instance plots on cybercrimes, domestic violence, land theft and environmental pollution address everyday problems and are intended above all to sensitize young people in Africa to explosive social issues through live and exciting radio plays. This raises some questions for us about real social conditions in the various countries. The audience is therefore cordially invited to a discussion with the presenters.
