The great lit.RUHR Gala - Story of my life! Lives masterfully told with Eva Mattes, Peter Kurth, Saša Stanišić, Wolfgang Niedecken and Mike Herting


How can you talk about the most incredible, the most surprising and the most insane thing that can ever happen to you – your own life? Countless writers have attempted in autobiographies and autobiographical novels to capture the quirks of childhood, the drama of the teenage years and the infamous mid-life crisis. Tonight, Eva Mattes and Peter Kurth will suffer along with Heine in school lessons, go with Sheila Heti for career counseling and join Joachim Meyerhoff as he studies acting in Munich. Saša Stanišić (“Origin”) will tell the comical and moving tale of how he learned German with the help of Bruce Willis. Accompanied on piano by Mike Herting, Wolfgang Niedecken will sing songs from a wild and rich life. With music and literature, Katty Salié will take you by the hand and guide you on the journey of a lifetime’s worth of memories. Concept: Eva Schuderer
