A cross-pollinated fashion event introducing 4 emerging designers from Berlin

Creative director: Tanja Bombach | Choreographer: Michael-John Harper | Sound designer: Mikk Madisson | Designer: Don Aretino, Maria Miottke, Olga Khristolyubova, Johanna Liebl | Hair&Makeup: Kenny Campbell | Light design: Rasmus Lauvring | Production & Technical director: Troels Primdahl | Video: Nikolas Kasinos & Jeremey Carne (Ouroboros) | Dancers: Lukas Städtler, Ty Gurfein, Ernst van Hoek, Daniel Schabert, Jules Boutet, Peer Liening, Stephan Quinci, Jessica Comis | Web-/Graphic design: Matthias Neumann | Photography: Florian Hetz | Presented and produced by Trauma Bar und Kino

TRAUMABARUNDKINO is thrilled to present the cross-pollinated fashion show NOW YOU MAY TELL THAT I'VE BEEN SEEN BY YOU, which brings together fashion and contemporary dance. Exploring the body and it’s movements, we merge the inner and outer expressions through an emotional approach to fashion. Four emerging fashion designers from Berlin showcase their varied, gender free collections in the intimate framework of a versatile and fluid performance.


The myth of Diana and Actaeon outlines this show - a venture into the conflicts inhabiting human nature at it’s most fundamental level.

The piece exposes primal human behaviour with the implicit price of being consumed by its intensity, as one gradually becomes a victim of their own drive. We explore the dimensions of voice as the only non-organic form of expression in the human body. We channel it’s raw power outwards. Exercising unprocessed, unfocused anger as creative liberation is an authentic form of shaping one's presence. Unleashed acceptance of raw aggression and its tones. Non-judgemental embrace of its potential.
As the inner struggle takes over the body, words become ranting, demeanour becomes rage – a fully rounded human being shines through in all its complexity.

Don Aretino invites a shift in perspective – investigating the fear of the unknown, he sets the viewpoint in an isolated space from which otherness is to be invaded, alienated. Solar, insular. Hybrid nomads evolve within islands of contemporary meaning and wonderment.

A complex labyrinth unfolds through the coloured glass of Maria Miottke’s vision as she creates composite identities based on narrative sequences of dreams where dimensions mingle and nature fools the viewer with patterns and designs.

How can we fight for things we believe in? What forms can strength and resistance take nowadays? How can our will to fight be born with the fact that we, and the whole world, are falling apart? Olga Khristolyubova’s work explores the symbiotic conflict of vulnerability and aggression through intertwining military functionality with the exposed nature of undergarments and bedding.

Shadows move, shapes come into sight – a fraction of inadvertance – and they’re gone. Johanna Liebl generates ‘aesthetics of disappearance’; ethereal forms, diaphanous membranes; mirrors, ungraspable glimpses of existence vanishing into a parallel world, into one’s own self.

Entrance: 10 € | Doors open: 20.00 | Show starts: 21.00 | Afterparty from: 22.00 TBA

Hunters. Gatherers.

w/ Inga Mauer • Nene H • J Tijn • AN-I

It has recently been proven that various forms of life exist outside of the Kreuzkoelln & Warschauer Strasse areas.
They say that if it exists, it is natural.
We invite all the hunters & gatherers out there to sharpen their spears and expand to a new off-the-beaten-path queer territory, complete with genre-bending sounds, darkroom(s) and all.

Fuck agriculture, let’s dance!
