Lucky Trimmer

LUCKY TRIMMER spotlights international artists one short format performance at a time.

With a curated selection of short dance performances chosen for their novelty, ingenuity, and sass, LUCKY TRIMMER creates extravagant feature-length programs that showcase diverse perspectives, bold insight, and unfettered artistry. What unites our performers is their desire to dazzle, inspire, and move audiences. To tears, to laughter, to get down and boogie! So long as they can do it in under 10 minutes!

Big thumbs up for you! Having the chance to perform in Berlin was unique. I felt I was performing in front of a well-educated audience. It was inspiring to see what other artists had in mind and to witness their creative choices.

I definitely enjoyed it and found it surprising, fresh, original. In some moments it was very funny and in some others I could reflect or feel near to what the artists were expressing with a lot of intensity.

Fabulous show! I am still giggling every time I think of the ladies from “Pink” nakedly sledging over the wet stage floor and shooting with a music-playing toy gun, totally surreal…!
