Berlin!

Berlin!

VIBEZ.

Under a circus-tent ceiling, ufaFabrik creates a theatre without walls in a secluded corner of its Tempelhof complex. This season, it is hosting the unusual international dance theatre and acrobatics spectacle “VibeZ.” . The arists come from Asia, the Caribbean, South America, Europe and they met in Berlin: young dancers, musicians and acrobats experience the “VibeZ.” – the feelings, the atmosphere and the moods of the city – and put these experiences on stage using the resources of their art. With breakdance, acrobatics, hip hop, beatboxing and tightrope performing, the young street artists create an emotional and dynamic show. Young, cheeky, multicultural … and full of energy: “Divinely gifted bodies” was the enthusiastic reaction of the press.

When? Thursday 29th , Friday 30th and on Saturday the 31st of July at 8.30pm

New hostel Pictures by upcoming Fotographer Marcel Steinmann…

by Marcel steinmann

EastSeven Berlin Hostel has got new pictures!

A couple of weeks ago we arranged a photoshoot with Marcel. He came by at the hostel to take pictures of several rooms, the reception, the garden, and ofcourse from the other common areas!
So now we can update our pictures everywhere and people from all over the world can see what the hostel looks like, before making a booking!

It was such fun to have Marcel around! I showed him some rooms where he could take pictures, and I even ´modelled´ for him!
Also he made a lot of pictures from the guest who where staying here. Especially at night, during the monday evening cooking event, where there were a lot of hungry guests around.
Marcel made pictures, and I walked around with the hostel-camera, making a new hostel-video.

We uploaded pictures already to myspace, facebook and Flickr….
Please take a look! Hope you like them!
If you have made any pictures of the hostel, during your stay here, please send them to us!! Thank you!
