The world comes to Berlin
28th FAIRY TALE DAYS OF BERLIN 2017
“LOVE IS A POWER FROM ABOVE:
FAIRY TALES AND STORIES OF LOVE AND HATE”
9th. to 26th. November 2017
MÄRCHENLAND stays up-to-date!
In today´s time of mass migration, turmoil and war, there is only one solution for all these problems: LOVE!
The 28th Berlin Fairy Tale Days are therefore dedicated to this fundamental tenet of humanity and position LOVE at the center of the festival. LOVE is a central motif in many fairy tales and stories. LOVE is essential between people as well as in religion, music, art and literature. LOVE for nature is existential. Gods and planets are linked to LOVE. LOVE is a place of yearning and a battle-ground, self-realization and self-negation, joy and pain. LOVE is immortal; we die for love… But LOVE has an antagonist HATE. And only those can hate that have loved before.
We can love people, animals, even an idea. We have love for our neighbors and are in love with ourselves. The universe of LOVE has no beginning and no end.
With known and unknown fairy tales, legends, myths and stories, we will approach this topic and come to the conclusion: Make LOVE, not war!
