With three events on two days, Übermut Project set foot on UK-ground for a showcase of new talents in music and performance. From May 18th to May 19th the “Übermut Project” visited the beautiful city of Brighton on England’s south coast.
As part of the Great Escape Festival the program began on May 18th with ZEITGEIST, a music-showcase including bands such as the acclaimed newcomers FUCK ART, LET’S DANCE! (Hamburg), and Gurr (Berlin). On the same day, the Hamburg collective A Wall is a Screen presented short movies in Brighton’s public space with a film screening tour throughout the city-center, showing several shorts with focus on Berlin and Hamburg.
The next day, Übermut went Presuming Ed, staging a mixture of music, performance, movies and visual arts from Hamburg, Berlin and Brighton at the city’s popular venue. Artists like Tellavision (Hamburg), Derya Yildirim (Berlin), Dream Wife (Brighton), Foreign Skin (Brighton) and Manuel Muerte (Hamburg) entered the stage to show their individual facets of “Übermut”.
In addition, the Video Club Brighton was screening movies in the bar’s cinema. The whole venue was temporarily remodeled by the collaboration Öffentliche Gestaltungsberatung, a group of architects and interior-designers from Hamburg.
Brighton was the second destination of the “Übermut Project“. (#ubermut). With this unprecedented project, the German cities of Berlin and Hamburg have started a world-tour of creativity. Based on the three values every creative holds dearly – freedom, collaboration and bravery – the project is aiming to encourage creative networks around the world.
