19.6.2021 Floating Cinema

Floating Cinema – you sway in boats in front of the screen!
Including performance by Chapeau Club and thematic kayak tour.

Location: On the Spree at the Rent-a-Boat rental (at Treptower Park at Insel der Jugend/Abteibrücke).
Bring your own boats or rent one from our cooperation partner Rent-a-Boat. No reservation possible, but Floating Cinema special rate from 20:00!
17:00-20:00: Kayak tour with Kayak Berlin from the Landwehrkanal to the Insel der Jugend – learn more about urban nature, ecology and creatures in Berlin’s waters!
What do the canal and the Spree mean for Berlin, city on the marsh? What about the water we paddle on and drink? And who lives here alongside the people in and on the water? On a joint search for clues on the water in the city.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, the tour as well the waitinglist is full.
20:30 Wasser zu Sekt (Water to Champagne) – surreal slow motion performance
The Chapeau Club presents in Water to Champagne the black and white dotted coffee with a surreal sensory journey and special reading. Dadaistic and interactive performance. A black and white dotted spectacle emerges from the sensual nonsense water journey, all under the sign and language of slowness.
21:30 Talk with Spree:publik
22:00: Short film programme Everything flows – Water as a resource and habitat
& Results of the Couch Potato Stop Motion Challenge 2021.

Join us on an exciting journey to magical places on, in and under water.
Swim with us through 70 minutes of short films of different genres! Meet a fisherman without a lake, accompany a fisherwoman on Madagascar through her everyday life changed by climate change and find out what happens when car tyres drown.
Come along on a journey through water, which is much more than just a resource and habitat.

Lay-Down Cinema in the Country.

Less is more – we try out deceleration & nature in the lay-down cinema. The screen hangs high up in the trees and the audience lies on mattresses or in hammocks with a view of the sky and the canopy of leaves.

Higher, faster, further? – We experience energy & mobility through a bicycle cinema.
At the energy-autonomous cinema, 10 stationary bicycles are used to pedal electricity for the cinema. The audience can take turns and is also invited to bring their own bikes.
More on the programme will follow soon. You can always find all the latest information here.
Each event has its own theme. In the city it’s about energy & mobility, in the countryside about deceleration & nature and on the river about water as a resource & habitat. Each event starts with a tour to the venue – by bike or canoe or on foot through forests and meadows in and around Berlin. The evening programme highlights the theme in a different way through artistic performances and ends with an open-air cinema under the stars.
With this project, we aim to make a contribution to the sustainability debate and actively invite people to open up new perspectives on much-discussed topics through creativity and art.
