Our special edition “The Wall” commemorates the 10th birthday of LUCKY TRIMMER as well as the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. To immortalise these two outstanding historical events, LUCKY TRIMMER is seeking excellent and innovative short performative pieces offering new interpretation on the concept of division as well as dealing with the individual and global consequences on todays views on topics such as separation, belonging, identity or integration.
“The Wall” will focus on the existence of walls, real or imaginary, old and new, as well as addressing the political, ideological, emotional, cultural impacts of division. We are particularly interested in witnessing how artists can inject personal experiences and translate ideas on such topics into an artistic proposal (dance, performing & visual arts, movie,etc)
Possible aspects we would like to address are: The Berlin Wall and its Fall; Still existing differences between East and West Germany; The European blockade against refugees; The ideological wall between North and South Korea;The Green Line in Nicosia;The effects of walls and settlement projects in Israel and Palestine, among others.
