About
Kulture Kosmos

      This summer we will return to Germany to the home of Kultur Kosmos, a very special location about 1:30h from Berlin in Lärz. Kultur Kosmos collective, who run the 70,000 attendee Fusion Festival, have invited us to use their amazing venue. With their support we can dance, play and explore at the old WW2 airfield they’ve transformed into a cultural playground. It’s surrounded by lush forests and includes a beautiful lake for swimming. Our hosts are, furthermore, a community invested in exploring alternative ways to create spaces and strive to build a more just society. We will have both indoor and outdoor studios and the infrastructure, which is basic, gives us a lot of freedom to build and improvise.

Festival Spaces
The nature of the venue and our wanting to keep things affordable means that life will not be the most luxurious in a material sense. Instead we merge into the atmosphere of a place built with a lot of love for detail and a deeply alternative and authentic spirit. The structures we will use and create will be simple. We will have two main dance spaces: Luftschloss and Theater Hangar. Luftschloss is a large circus arena that is suitable for rigging as well. The dance floors will be custom built so please do not expect sprung hardwood. The Salon de Baile kitchen and dinning space will also be used for playing and teaching.
Essentials
Even though we expect nice warm weather it might be that it gets chilly in the dance spaces and recommend you to bring enough warm dance clothes. Please bring solid shoes, rain gear, a tent and camping gear, a flashlight, reusable water bottle. We have a full equipped outdoor kitchen so you don’t need to bring dishes or cutlery.
To give the event a special touch please also consider bringing the following: A funky party costume that you would like to see someone wear, some chocolate to share, any toys you’d might like to play with, something to offer during the ritual. We will provide safer sex supplies but cannot guarantee that they will always be available everywhere you need them so it might be good to bring some of your own as well.
Food & Cooking
We will have a full-time chef preparing our lunches and dinners for us supported by a core team of helpers to provide us with yummy, locally sourced dance friendly food. We will be serving vegan/vegetarian dishes with an occasional non vegetarian option. The breakfast buffet will be setup by us each morning and all participants are requested to support the festival with one helper shift.
Getting There

Lärz is a small village, 150 km northwest of Berlin. As it is difficult to get there with public transport we strongly recommend you find an alternative way to get there. To help we will offer a Bus transfer from Berlin to the festival site on the 29th of Aug leaving at 10:00AM. The price of this is not included in the festival price but wont be much. Please make sure to be on time! We are also looking into a bus back to Berlin at the end of the event and will provide more details about this later. We will also create an on-line ride-share board for those having spare seats and those looking for them. Finally we would love to ask you to also consider our mother earth in your travel decisions and encourage you to carbon compensate where possible.

Accommodation

The nature of the venue provides camping accommodation only, with plenty of space to choose. We will try to set up a system to share and provide extra tents for those traveling by air and having limited luggage capacity.  Be aware that there is no dormitory option at the festival – please make sure to bring your own tent and camping gear!
