LUCKY TRIMMER is an independent curatorial dance platform engaged with physicality, movement and performance founded in Berlin in 2004. Our manifold and weatherproof jury selects short pieces that touch our hearts out of a pool of international applications and put them together to form an extravagant feature-length program. LUCKY TRIMMER stands between worlds by bridging the avant-garde and the mainstream and by combining artistic excellence with the lightness of entertainment. Our world revolves around contemporary dance but is open to all genres as long as the 3 LUCKY-rules are followed: be original, be bold and keep it under 10 minutes! Our view of the world is naive and fearless. Over the years, LUCKY TRIMMER has evolved using ideas drawn from the perspective of a child's mind: a lack of fear and expectation, the ability to lose one's self in the creative process, learning through explorative playfulness. By fostering the child mind in a casual, cabaret-like atmosphere, LUCKY TRIMMER has injected wonder, humor and risk-taking into its attitude, benefiting both the artists and audience with new visions of possibility and resulting in establishing itself as the world renowned "gateway drug for contemporary dance and performance art” and a mainstay in the Berlin cultural landscape.
