PROGRAM IN BAUMHAUS SPACE
Want to meet neighbors and other people who want to make the world a better place in Berlin? Our project space is a platform for meeting, events and workshops for a variety of people and organizations…
Check out our program below to see the schedule of events. And if you think something is missing, maybe you could create that event in Baumhaus yourself. Get inspired and involved in Baumhaus project space!
Gerichtstr. 23, front building, ground floor – the entire space is ground floor, we have a ramp to get in, and a barrier free bathroom (no handles). Please let us know if you have other special needs, we’ll try to provide support. Please note: The entire space is designated as an “Open Greeting Zone”, which means that it is a place where anyone can feel comfortable walking up to anyone else and introduce themselves. Our events are often bilingual in English & German. Please let us know if you don’t understand. Most of the time we can organize translation on the spot.
If not indicated otherwise: 3-8€ (pay-as-you-feel) for the space
Card games, board games, dice games, video games, physical games… anything is fair game! (we have a beamer)
PLUS a special IGO vocal jam session for those who can’t make it on Thursdays or just can’t get enough…
19:00 doors open, 2 – 5€ entrance
“Open Greeting Zone” all night long – feel free to introduce yourself to anyone or any group and expect the same in return…
19:30 let the games begin!
20:30 IGO session in the back room
22:00 feedback round
Improvisational Groove Orchestra (I.G.O.) – a fun way to experience authentic connection and community through exploring a commonly created sound space.
Some describe it as a game where everyone can win as much as they want. Some describe it as a deeply engaging and active connective meditation. Some say it is like tripping out as a group. Some say it’s just plain fun… all are correct.
Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focussed on only the sound space without any other distractions.
At each session we usually have more beginners rather than experienced singers; all levels and voice types are welcome. Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in and be jamming out within the first 15 minutes!
It is a learning process in progress, each time balancing ourselves in volume and expression to merge into the group sound space, allowing everyone to hear and be heard, naturally developing our own musical styles.
The last times we explored further into the human sequencer game – a system where one person acts as a conductor, splitting the group into small parts, giving each small group unique impulses that than develop into one composition.
Feel most welcome to come and join us! (please be on time, there are important things to explain before beginning)
** pay as you feel, 2 – 5€ after the session
