Anhörung! Public Space for the Radio Play – Radio Plays for the Public
Hermann Naber (1933–2012) is one of the most important pioneers of the contemporary radio play. He is responsible for successful works that have become part of German radio play history, such as the adaptation of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. He also produced around 100 radio plays himself, including Murkes Collected Silences after Heinrich Böll. In addition to discussions with Ursula Ruppel, Ulrich Gerhardt and Oliver Sturm on Hermann Naber, excerpts from his directorial work will be played.
This evening ist part of new event series for audio art "Anhörung!" of the Akademie der Künste. In this series of radio plays some exemplary pieces are listened to and discussed anew, archives are researched, borderlands are explored and forms of the public sphere are put to the test.
