Hamburg and Berlin celebrate music and performance artists

Berlin and Hamburg are sending exciting creatives on a tour with “Übermut“. The next destination is Brighton, where musicians and performance artists will showcase their creativity on May 18 and 19, during the city’s festival season.

With three events on two days, the Übermut Project sets foot on UK-ground for a showcase of new talents in music and performance. The program begins with ZEITGEIST, a music-showcase at The Great Escape Festival on 18 May. That same day, the Hamburg collective A Wall is a Screen will present short movies in Brighton’s public sphere in a film screening tour throughout the city-center, screening several shorts with focus on Berlin and Hamburg. The artist JBXDR from Berlin joins the spectacle with his stunning drum performance.

On 19 May, Übermut stages a mixture of music, performance, movies and visual arts from Hamburg, Berlin and Brighton at Presuming Ed. Artists like Tellavision (Hamburg), Derya Yildirim (Berlin), Foreign Skin (Brighton) and Manuel Muerte (Hamburg) enter the stage to show their individual facets of “Übermut”, which literally translates to over-bravery. In addition, the Video Club Brighton screens movies in the bar’s cinema which will be temporarily remodeled by the collaboration Öffentliche Gestaltungsberatung, a group of architects and interior-designers from Hamburg.

Übermut is aiming to encourage creative networks around the world through the promotion of three core values: liberty, collaboration and bravery. It offers a wide array of actions, created by the artists in collaboration with visitBerlin and Hamburg Marketing. Übermut’s take on Brighton is set up in collaboration with RockCity Hamburg, IHM, Kampnagel and Popup Brighton. The project is accompanied by photographer Kevin McElvaney, an award-winning Hamburg-based photo-journalist.
