Über die Veranstaltung

Esther Esche reads refreshingly funny texts from her father's life.

Eberhard Esche is one of those whose loss becomes more and more perceptible over the years. The actor's art may be fleeting, but with his books he has set himself an important memorial stone and left behind a work of living memory, a solid art concept and an indomitable political stance for those who will be born later. His autobiographical stories are of course about theater, but they also tell of the social conditions under which theater flourishes or vegetates, and of the people who make the theater.

Esther Esche studied at the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts in Berlin. She received her first engagement after completing her studies at the Senftenberg Theater, where she stayed with the ensemble for two years. In the early 1990s she returned to Berlin and subsequently made guest appearances at the Deutsches Theater, the Berliner Ensemble, the Volksbühne and the Maxim Gorki Theater, among others. Since the mid-1990s, Esther Esche has primarily appeared in numerous film and television roles. In 2003 she received the Acting Award for “Best Actress” at the European Film Festival in Brest. She works as a lecturer in acting at various drama schools.

Eberhard Esche was born in Leipzig in 1933, studied at the theater school there and initially went as an actor to Meiningen, Erfurt and Karl-Marx-Stadt and was hired at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin in 1961, where he embodied many great roles. I.a. the Lancelot in "Dragon", Amphitryon in "Amphitryon", Satanael in "Adam and Eve" Seneca in the play of the same name by Peter Hacks, the Wallenstein by Friedrich Schiller. He distinguished himself above all as a reciter in solo programs such as "Germany a Winter Tale" by Heinrich Heine or "Reineke Fuchs" by JW Goethe. Esche also starred in important DEFA films with, among others, "Spur der Steine", "How do you marry a king", "The divided sky" based on the novel of the same name by Christa Wolff. Eberhard Esche died on May 15, 2006 at the age of 72.
