Wort & Wild: Artgerechte Unterhaltung Audiobook

Wort & Wild: Artgerechte Unterhaltung

Author: Faltsch Wagoni Narrator: Faltsch Wagoni Release Date: February 2011

Als Menschenforscher und Bühnenprimaten ohne Beißhemmung tanzen Faltsch Wagoni - mal naturbelassen, mal im Affenzahn der Zeit - in ihrem neuen Programm 'Wort & Wild' und betreiben artgerechte Unterhaltung vom Feinsten. Mit poetischen Texten, wilden Gesängen, beschwörender Trommel-Lust und groovenden Gitarren forschen Thomas und Silvana Prosperi nach menschlichen Gründen und Abgründen, nach Ursprung und Urvieh. Sie besingen die 'Gene von Irene' und den 'Tarzan von Marzahn'. Sie prosten dem 'blauen Planeten' zu und träumen von einer Gesellschaft, die mit 'mehr Weniger' auskommt. Und sie betreiben ihre Art von Mülltrennung: Sprachmülltrennung. Wer sich artgerecht unterhalten will, der muss diese CD hören.

Worlds Elsewhere: Journeys Around Shakespeare's Globe Audiobook

Worlds Elsewhere: Journeys Around Shakespeare's Globe

Author: Andrew Dickson Narrator: Andrew Dickson Release Date: May 2016

There are 83 copies of the First Folio in a vault beneath Capitol Hill, the world's largest collection. Well over 150 Indian movies are based on Shakespeare's plays-more than in any other nation. If current trends continue, there will soon be more high school students reading The Merchant of Venice in Mandarin Chinese than in early-modern English. Why did this happen, and how? Ranging ambitiously across four continents and 400 years, Worlds Elsewhere is an eye-opening account of how Shakespeare went global. Seizing inspiration from the playwright's own fascination with travel, foreignness, and distant worlds, Dickson takes us on an extraordinary journey-from Hamlet performed by English actors tramping through Poland in the early 1600s to twenty-first-century Shanghai, where Shashibiya survived Mao's Cultural Revolution to become an honored Chinese author. Both a cultural history and a literary travelogue, the first of its kind, Worlds Elsewhere explores how Shakespeare became the world's writer, and how his works have changed beyond all recognition during the journey.

Wolfgang Borchert: Draußen vor der Tür: Ein Drama. Ungekürzte Lesung Audiobook

Wolfgang Borchert: Draußen vor der Tür: Ein Drama. Ungekürzte Lesung

Author: Wolfgang Borchert Narrator: Jürgen Fritsche Release Date: January 2018

Wolfgang Borchert (1921 - 1947) gilt als prominentester Vertreter der sogenannten 'Trümmerliteratur', die sich mit den Schicksalen der Menschen nach Ende des zweiten Weltkrieges befasst. Heimkehrende Soldaten, die körperlich oder seelisch verwundet sind; Zurückgebliebene, die vergeblich auf etwas Wärme und Nähe hoffen; aber auch Menschen, die durch die Kriegserlebnisse scheinbar unberührt zu sein scheinen. Die Eindringlichkeit, mit der der Kriegsteilnehmer Borchert die Schicksale der Protagonisten beschreibt, macht seine Geschichten auch heute noch zu beredten Zeugen der unmittelbaren Nachkriegsepoche. Dieses Hörbuch präsentiert Borcherts Theaterstück 'Draußen vor der Tür'. Kriegsheimkehrer Beckmann findet nach Jahren in Gefangenschaft zuhause nichts mehr so vor wie es war. Seine Frau hat einen Anderen, im Hause seiner Eltern wohnt eine andere Familie - nur seine damaligen Vorgesetzten haben sich es schon wieder in Deutschland bequem gemacht. Noch heute ist 'Draußen vor der Tür' unverzichtbarer Bestandteil der Schullektüre.

Witness Audiobook

Witness

Author: Nick Warburton Narrator: A Full Cast, Paul Hilton, Penelope Wilton, Peter Firth, Tom Goodman-Hill Release Date: April 2009

The Gospel story as you've never heard it before. Everyone knows the story of Jesus' life as told in the Gospels - and perhaps because it is so familiar, we have forgotten what an extraordinary life it was. Through these five plays, the story is pieced together as if from the memories of those who were there and saw events for themselves: Jesus' mother Mary, his closest friends, the Jewish High Priest, and the Roman Governor. They recount the events they witnessed as if theyhad happened just the other day - and the effect on their own lives. How James and John first encountered Jesus by the lake; the three astonishing years of his ministry; his trial and ignominious death; the wholly unexpected resurrection; and finally, his mother Mary looks back to his obscure birth and the portents that accompanied it. And so the tale regains some of its freshness and even shocking nature. Each play is followed by a short interview feature, Witness: Behind Luke's Gospel, presented by Ernie Rea and examining the themes of Luke's Gospel. Featuring Tom Goodman-Hill as Jesus, Paul Hilton as Judas, Peter Firth as Peter, and Penelope Wilton as Mary.
