#5 of the spoken word reading show in the Brotfabrik
Max Golenz and Diego Hagen are not only German-speaking vice-team champions in the poetry slam, humble teachers, aspiring rappers, comedians and word acrobats, but also operators of Germany's most educational reading show and the only two people who unironically wear Santa hats and sing "All I Feel free to sing along to “Want for Christmas Is You”.
Because it's finally time for an X-MAS Edition Deluxe: "BROT & GAMES - the Christmas Edition" is the literary Yuletide for everyone who is tired of junk elves and Christmas markets.
Save yourself two mulled wine and enjoy a brilliant Christmas evening program consisting of literature and music, art and games. There is reading, rhyming and rapping. Sometimes exultant, sometimes saddened to death. But always entertaining, authentic and with a lot of feeling for the most wonderful time of the year. This Christmas edition will be so festive that Christmas Eve will be brought forward. Because Max Golenz and Diego Hagen are BREAD & GAMES.
