    “ Hast Du wirklich mit den Indianern gesprochen? „
    Uschi Erlewein studierte Storytelling, Pantomime und Theater in USA. Von ihren zahlreichen, langen Aufenthalten in Nordamerika brachte sie Indianergeschichten, Mythen und Legenden nordamerikanischer Indianer mit.

    I have seen today a german woman transform into a native american woman. This was like magic, when she started to sing, she was totally transformed.

    Eine im besten Sinne des Wortes „außer-gewöhnliche“ Schulstunde erlebten die Schülerinnen und Schüler der Klassenstufen 5 und 6 des Gymnasiums in der vergangenen Woche: Zu Gast bei ihnen war die Geschichtenspielerin Uschi Erlewein aus Heilbronn mit dem Thema Coyote wandert…Was sich Indianer am Lagerfeuer erzählen – Geschichten von weit her, die nah gehen.


    Vor der dunklen Kulisse des Theatersaales, die als einziges Requisit eine Sammlung alter Körbe aufwies, stand eine Frau in phantasievollem, fremdartig anmutendem Kostüm auf der Bühne und bot zwei Stunden lang ganz großes Erzähltheater. Allein durch Stimme und Bewegung, Gestik, Mimik und Körpersprache ließ sie atmosphärisch eindrucksvolle Bilder zu einer poetischen Reise in ferne fremde Welten entstehen. Ein Zauber, dem sich niemand entziehen konnte!

    Ein weiterer, ganz besonderer Reiz lag für die Schüler darin, dass die Geschichten bilingual (deutsch/englisch) dargeboten wurden. Ohne Mühe ließ sich die jeweilige Handlung verfolgen, da wechselweise Satz um Satz ineinander verwoben und subtil dem Sprachverständnis der Jugendlichen angepasst war.
    Fazit der Veranstaltung: mehr davon! Uschi Erlewein wird man sich jederzeit gerne wieder einladen!

    Coyote is walking, walking

    Native American Indian trickster tales – storytelling in english or bi-lingual (german/english)

    These well-known Native American Indian tales talk about creation and the origin of life in a humorous way. Traditionally they are told in the cold season and often performed with movement.

    Coyote, a restless character, is walking and walking,
    creating and destroying, helping and deceiving.
    Quite often he loses his life, but his death isn’t permanent. He is as old as the first human myth. He always was there and always will be.

    Coyote has supernatural powers. He is a friend of the birds and other animals. Being a „trickster“, a shape-shifter, he can transform to any form he likes – animals or people. He may appear as a raven, a spider or a rabbit.

    His nature is full of contrasts, simple-minded, naïve, nasty, clever, foolish, all mixed in a strange way. Coyote is always hungry, always ready to trick others, occasionally trapped by his own tricks and quite often in trouble.
    He is a fool who makes nonsense – full of sense.
    Coyote flips the familiar upside-down and his jokes point to other realities.
    He causes development and growth.

    However, Coyote is a shimmering unpredictable character, sly, intelligent and foolish, nice and lovable.
    He is vicious-foolish, strong-weak, sacred-sinful, funny-desperate, creative-destructive, heroic-cowardly.

    Coyote is a fool, who makes nonsense – full of sense.
    Coyote teaches people how to live.
    These trickster tales are a celebration of life.
    Enjoy!

    Uschi has wonderful great storytelling skills. I went to one of her performances and even though I don´t speak the language so well, I could understand the story, because Uschi is speaking so clearly, and not only using words to communicate, but her whole body and being.

    “ … we had Mrs. Uschi Erlewein as storyteller in our library. She told the kids some American Indian stories with Coyote as the main feature. Upon our request she told the stories both in German and English.   It was interesting because she was able to switch skillfully between German and English in a way that bilingual kids were able to understand her and follow up the stories.

    Our Library had started a series of events for children between 3 and 6. It is called “Kids in Wonderland” and it contains children program in form of story telling, theaters, puppet shows and concerts. This series which take place almost every two weeks, is bilingual and the participants are Germans as well as Non-Germans.

    The world is changing and the now emerging New World is very different than the Old World: Many families have to wonder from one place to another place, from one country to another and they have to take their children while on move. The world is becoming more colorful, the future world is more hybrid. Nowadays more and more children are raised between two cultures and English is used as the main language for communication. Bilinguality is on the march! Children learn this language very easily as they are very young, and it would remain in their mind as they grow up. 
    We wish Mrs. Erlewein more success in her bilingual children programs. „
