Four Audiobooks with her Duo TonSatz 2015 Café Zeitvergessen 2013 Wie ein Augenzwinkern der Zeit 2003 Losgehen und Möglichkeiten atmen 2001 Als Wir Uns Trafen Musically staged Readings Since the year 2000 the author works together with the composer/pianist Eva Batt. Together they form the literary-musical duo TonSatz. Art & Engagement Stylistic diversity is a special quality of the author. She also surprises again and again with unconventional "crossover", that is to say, a fusion of different literary genres. The spectrum ranges from short stories, narratives, poetry, lyrical prose, satire, short thrillers to modern fairy tales and German lyrics. Christiane Schwarze takes an unambiguous position against a "society that freezes itself to death". On the other hand, she always looks over the European edge to see the bigger picture to show that many of the things we do or refuse to do in the West have an impact on the other continents. Many texts by Christiane Schwarze implicitly appeal to the conscience. Because that's what it's about to wake up from the comfortable state of lethargic Uninvolved Being! 3
