Lucky Trimmer #14 // 2010

27 February 2010

Volksbühne im Prater, Berlin

LUCKY TRIMMER takes its 14 edition up the road to the Volksbühne in Prater with a new set of short dance pieces by eleven choreographers from Germany and abroad.  The spectrum of pieces span from remarkably detailed movement studies and challenging physical extremes to highly pliable performance allied with breakdance.  Additionally, there is tightly wound theatricality, absurd black comedy sketches as well as a loving homage to Pina and Michael via an electro‐acoustic live act.
