We have just made a series of animated videos for AEG/Mercedes-Benz which are playing all over the square in front of the Stadium and new concert hall in East Berlin. Giant video screens on the buildings and on specially built towers, a fountain, new bars and restaurants, a bowling alley, cinema and more make this a very popular destination with everyone. One of our videos is playing every couple of minutes from 6 AM till midnight, 7 days a week. We will post up clips from all of the videos but, for now here is the Christmas Holidays video that is playing incorporating footage of the LED screens in the square on which they can be seen.

We also performed at the associated event: WITHOUT BORDERS… Archives, Libraries, Museums and Special Collections (ALMS) 2016, an International LGBTQ+ Conference hosted by the City of London through London Metropolitan Archives in partnership with Bishopsgate Institute and the University of Westminster.
We also hosted a special Late Night event at The BRITISH MUSEUM to celebrate LGBTQ* History Month, which included us leading the audience on a musical tour of the Museum’s exhibits.
Other performances have included our participation in Magic Me/ DUCKiE’s ”Palace of Varieties” Music Hall re-creation project.

We were invited to make a video work for the Berlin Leuchtet (Berlin Light Art) festival, from the 2nd till the 19th October 2014. Buildings in Berlin are lit up with video artworks and projections and the city is transformed for people to explore.The O2 Arena in East Berlin is covered by an array of LED panels, 116 metre wide by 12 metre tall. Facing the East Side Gallery section of the Berlin wall, it was visible from Kreuzberg across the River Spree and also on the giant video screens at the river boat jetty opposite the arena, and by Warschauer Strasse station.
