Que Pasa Mi Nina

Are you open for some artistic stuff? For some Spanish modern dance theater? Great!
At the beginning of august I started working on a project called "Human Loops". Here is the offical description:
"HUMAN LOOPS is a co-operation between dancers and choir singers from Spain and Germany. 
HUMAN LOOPS overcomes the barriers between auditorium and stage, like traveling through a animated museum the spectator is free to discover the various scenes in Berlin’s main town hall “Rotes Rathaus”.  HUMAN LOOPS deals with two formative mechanisms of the human being: duality and cycle. The performative basis of the respective scenes is the LOOP – little plots and emotional conditions are being performed without beginning or end."
My job was to be the costume supervisior! 
You know this is art and in Berlin most artist work for free. Unfortunately. But I really like the choreographer who is also a friend of mine. 
We already worked together!  And it was great everytime! So if she asks for help I am always at her service =) You can take a look at our past work if you want!
Unfortunately there were no money for costumes. So I had to create a look that seperates the dancers from the audience without making costumes. Seriously, that's nearly impossible. 40 people from spain and 40 people from berlin and everyone overstrained with these 3 rules i made up: 

1. No black, no white
2. No shoes, no socks
3. Everything Vintage is welcome

But anyway it was a lot of fun! I learned some funny spanish phrases like "Que Pasa Mi Nina". That means "How u doin baby?" Very usefull in your everyday life!
And I spent my days with my boyfriend (because he did some video stuff) and Mr. Tal De Vil(he was Marcel's henchman for the shooting days) who also took the following pictures to give you some impressions!
she had the only costume in the play. Her role was to be a traffic policeman and "guide" the people around the museum
Marcel, Meritxell and me looking really serious at the scene
We also had funny lunch breakes with fabulous catering from a nice bistro called Cuccuma 
they also had a circus out in the yard but it was closed =(
creepy horse disguised as an elefant...
again creepy horse
Not sure if we are doing couple stuff or if i try to eat him but I really like the photo <3
  Marcel also took a photo of me, it was more for fun but it turned out to be cool so we made a 3minute-mini-shooting with everyone and he did some kind of collage. I think it looks a bit like a Nike commercial xD 
Italo looks like Wolverine xD
