Lucky Trimmer #22 // The Wall 2014

Photo by Thomas Hoepker

31. Oct & 01. Nov 2014

Sophiensaele, Berlin

To celebrate the conjuncture of its 10th birthday and the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, LUCKY TRIMMER introduces for the first time ever a themed evening packed with a waterfall of World, European and German premieres. The result is a choppy and adventurous journey with 8 stopovers. This time on board of the creative ark are deep rooted origins for prejudice and division, forces that are imposed on us, a reflection on what constrains or frees us, a cry for equal rights, political statements and social criticism as well as a strife for togetherness and unity.
