NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

Sven Amtsberg

One author, two shows.

Black Svenny - Dawn often the Mett | Something like horror stories

A man buys several kilos of minced meat, which shortly after comes to life and harasses him in the worst way. In the story "Blondon," an entire town blondes in a terrifying way, sending the narrator into a full-blown panic. Unsightly men become zombies without their wives even noticing - unsightly men, that is. Full-body liver spots overgrow and disfigure the politically misguided, turning them into brown monsters. And then there is Svenny, the murder doll ...

It's stories like these with which Black Svenny brings horror to the posh NORDEN Festival. And the worst: All stories are absolutely true! Really!

Saturday, August 28, 4:15 - 5 p.m., Culture Tent.


THE SWAN ARNSBERG SHOW - Literary Entertainment and a Cauldron of Sexuality

Sexuality is still a black hole for many. Something that has a great attraction, but eventually eats you up. Most feel left alone with their sexuality and often only their own parents remain to ask for advice. Many despair that their sexuality has none of that casualness they know from sexuality on the Internet. Their own sexuality, on the other hand, often looks like a hearty pre-Pomeranian dish.

Swan Arnsberg would like to give a helping hand this evening. We want to approach this delicate topic together in an objective way. There will be texts for introduction as well as moral self-experiments and experiments. Later, seniors dressed in skin-colored clothing will recite sexually charged, yet sophisticated poetry. Even more likely, Swan will do this part herself.

Saturday, August 28, 8:30-9:15 p.m., Culture Tent.
