Red Square Festival, happening on May 12, 2018 at Kulturfabrik Moabit has lofty goals. It aims to bring together music, art and civic initiatives into one multidisciplinary celebration. The main headliner is the notorious Trubestkoy from Minsk. Also performing will be Berlin’s own Mirmix Orkeztan (Global Grooves), Polly Tikk (French-Russian Indie) and Los Spätkaufens (Chile-German Flamenco & Swing). Joining them from the DJs booths are Wladimir Kaminer and Russendisko, and a few Berlin techno DJs including Sabrina Mue (of Kattermukke) and Gutter (Mandatory Records).
Besides the huge party, other happenings will include a photo exhibition, an art show, Steffen Brenn’s installation, poetry and literary performances by Genia Markova and Dmitri Vachedin. For the lovers of “party like a Russian” style, there will be a caviar tasting experience (with Champagne but of course).
The little ones are more than welcome. During the day there will be family-friendly upcycling workshops, “Paint like Chagall” drawing, painting and art history workshop, Pelmeni cook-outs and bilingual upbringing and education discussion groups.
In parallel, social entrepreneurs and civic education experts will present their innovative projects, civic education platforms and social entrepreneurship start-ups from Berlin and Eastern Europe. The forum will conclude with the workshops on digitalization of civic sphere, media, culture of memory and right populism in Europe panel discussion.
The festival is spearheaded by a volunteer team of artists, civic activists and innovators. Your support is crucial. Even 5 euro, the price of the early bird ticket, Pelmeni workshop registration or a t-shirt purchase would help us tremendously. Let’s write Red Square into history of Berlin indie scene together!
