ANA CAROLINA ANDRADE
Ana Bathe (born in Belgrade in 1987) is a multi-disciplinary autodidactic artist currently living and working in Berlin. Drawing inspiration from various forms of art and by assuming the roles of subject, photographer, painter, sculptor, dancer, set and costume designer in her work, the artist is able to produce works which give her philosophies a visual body – often unconventional in form and matter.
While being irrevocably shaped by childhood experiences of war-trauma and subsequently as a refugee, her works do incorporate these aspects but move beyond them and address societal issues like ever-present consumerism, the conception of gender or the psychological consequences of an expanding technologically interconnected life. Aiming to intrusively stimulate the audiences emotionally and cognitively, the artist’s objective is to directly evoke a lasting communicative exchange.

ANALI takes the audience with her on an exciting journey of discovery, where the beginning and the end gets new meanings .
ANALI GOLDBERG & FÁBIO M SILVA
"A CLOSET HALF FULL"
In the midst of our current rip of the space-time continuum, iconic post-gender seamstrex kunstler(ette) FÁBIO M SILVA and hyper-sexualized post-human psychoanalyst of Berlin’s club scene ANALI GOLDBERG decided to move their WG's garden into the safety of a deserted techno club... bringing their chickens, sewing patterns, lost phalluses, witch soup, embellished truths, matriarchal goodies and very used breasts.
At home their closet was full of skeletons and viruses but, with a pandemic going around, their current closet is now only half full. Since their beloved frozen fish department no longer opens on Fridays, but on Mondays instead, all they can do is drink psychedelic herbal tea and discuss claustrophobia, the past, the present... and the absence of any futures.
Antina Christ creates a performance displaying the suffering, pain, and fear of not fitting into the cis-lounge, the status quo, and the norm of Christian values and demonstrates how we feel the need to assimilate into those horror visions of lies. They give you a view inside of themselves, while simultaneously creating an exorcism against the binary-cis-term in which we are all still forced to live.

"Nostalgia of Succulents"
Nostalgic intimacy of succulents inside a metal cage. Cold bars shaped into stylized florist ornaments. Oppression almost resembling tropics in ridiculous attempts to create some exotic fantasy. There is a large cactus chained to a naked boy.
They are two bodies of a similar size juxtaposed along the axis of a chain: an animalistic lump of boy's flesh submits to the defensive immobility of the vegetative pulp.
Slowly, the melancholic body of arched boy envelopes tenderly the naked cactus and its patient violence..
Self-destructive longing to press his body against the cactus erects the boy against its totem of thorns. ‘Does it want to rip my skin off and pierce my organs?’ Wonders the boy for a moment and commands: ‘Projectiles against my head, separate the hairs falling on my face ..‘
He brushes the cactus with manic laughter. Pantomime is a desperate longing for touch. Sounds retain certain clarity of an echo chamber. Phantom gestures against the isolation.”
HOTTIE DE PARIS
A 'Polesque'-pioneer, Hottie turns the art of burlesque upside down by fusing it with pole dance. For Overmorrow, she sets the high heels and suggestive body waves aside and puts the audience in the hot seat, luring them into a deep reflection on gender in the “cis-lounge”, which she co-designed.
Through a low tunnel and metallic corridors, we get immersed into a kind of sci-fi dimension, a futuristic maze which triggers the impression that something unforeseen will be waiting when we turn. And indeed. This space is sometimes inhabited by an entity that is longing for contact, trying to shape itself like the passers-by in order to relate with them. But how far communication can go without the use of spoken words? Is it possible to trust––and furthermore, to love––an apparently so different kind of being, yet in ways quite similar to us? To experience deep connection, is it indispensable to touch? What if we can’t even look at each other into our so-called windows of the soul?
Well, if you come across this creature, don’t be afraid. Maybe it just wishes for interaction and is curious to explore. Or who knows? It could even be a deity of some sort. It is said we should treat each encounter as if potentially facing a hidden god: with respect, admiration, and love––this way, from every experience we can learn something and grow.
JULIETTA LA DOLL
Kim Kong's abstract clowning meets contemporary and urban dance styles, while her wit meets with darkness to represent the variety of emotions that can exist between four bedroom walls. These bedroom walls form an Art Exhibition within Overmorrow, built by her Production Company 'Red Leather Lab' in association with various artists in a project called Locked in, Lights on. Her performances within it expose the pressure of the outside world seeping in, affecting her when no one can see her, she is watched, controlled and unsafe to do the things she really wants to do.
She also musically performs NUNsense, playing with the moralities imposed upon sin and freedom and what lies beneath the robes of this rapping Nun, no less. Our bodies and souls' mechanical functionings are discussed and what we really all love to get up to is quite bluntly exposed, you’re welcome.
You might also meet her in the form of Lenny, the janitor with a cheeky passion for drifting off to the music he sings to and ending up rather elevated, putting his equipment to NO good use, and casually fixing all your problems.
Kiki Moorse's live singing performance „Voice Over „ takes the audience into a personal world where dog owners, headache, love and affection, high-rises at night, hair and it's meaning as a secondary sex symbol or general content of movies and music are discussed in a poetic, slightly sarcastic but humorous way.

LILITH THE QUING
"Tick-tock the Timeline Clock (excerpt)"
For Overmorrow, Baldwin performs a condensed version of her performance, TIck-tock the Timeline Clock. The piece investigates learning processes and consciousness of Artificial Intelligence, through a set of parameters that generate interactions with the audience. Baldwin assumes the role of an embodied AI (AI Lori) that is in training. She follows a pre-coded algorithm to invite and answer questions from the audience. The information feeds back into a learning process. Coding is not neutral; the audience’s biases are part of her development. The piece explores how truth is constructed and disseminated, the (de)construction of language, and the productive possibilities of a glitch. Glitching signifies a deviation and an option to fail for AI Lori, inviting questions of free will and algorithmic limitations.
Lucille Spielfuchs is the alter ego of Lucille Lehr, a multidisciplinary artist. Her work focuses on how performance manifests into our social, political, and personal lives. She examines fiction by using traditional mediums such as oil on canvas, clay, and performance, but also creates costumes without material limitations.
She interrogates the myths and conventionality of beauty, binary gender, media, elitism, and other performed and perceived identities.
I am someone who has lost their identity. My sex is not defined and I try to understand whom I am by embodying the furniture around me, try to compliment them, to copy the videos screened on my laptop, trying to wear the makeup left on the desk.
During this lonely travel I discover my instinct of self-adaptation, i enjoy quiet, my intimacy and the time become slow, such as my movements.
Step by step I define my femininity and start owning feelings that women are currently experiencing in their homes;
such as solidarity, sense of guilt, fear from Covid-19, fear from domestic violence, depression, anxiety, happiness and quiet.
During each performance the woman I become paints something on her pajama for reminding herself what kind of day she has been through.
This performance is a small part of a set of shows representing a bigger longer journey of a woman and the four walls around her. Sometimes you can see her perspective in close up, by walking into her bedroom; sometimes you can see the bedroom zoomed out, as a small orange box, where she become only a shadow.
Concrete makes the four walls. Concrete is a real relationship.
"THIS IS YOUR LAST STOP"

Mezkalito is a Peruvian spoken word performer based in Berlin and co-host of the "Poetic Groove", a show for poetry, performance, and music with 9 years in Berlin. He collaborates with different artists, poets, performers, and musicians creating a poetic and musical landscape of inspiration.

NOEMI VEBERIC LEVOVNIK
aka THE SLIGHTLY STRANGE THEATRE
"The Cat" / "The Diva" / "The Love Oracle" / "The Bunny"
Noemi Veberič Levovnik (b. 1985, Slovenia) is an interdisciplinary artist from Slovenia and a world traveler. She studied contemporary art in France and is now based in Berlin, where she works with sound, text, installation, and performance. With her own theatrical troupe, The Slightly Strange Theatre, she brings us her characters and alter-egos: the dancing, mischievous, and, occasionally pregnant, Cat; the suicidal, borderline Diva, who might shoot you - or herself; the Oracle of Love, fierce with intuitive insight; the lovesick bunny Lulu Lapin. There is also Candice, the masked stripper… And maybe others? You never know which one will show up, and her practice is an ever-evolving process.
Playing with the visitor’s desire and subjugating the (male) gaze by returning the Cat gaze, which is far more penetrating but also playful, she will win or screw you over, depending on how well you behave. Sometimes she will playfully engage you in dance, other times she will bring you to tears with her enchanting voice and her big eyes. In the Slightly Strange Theater, you can expect an intense experience of sensitive humor, obsessive, tragical, tearjerking love, power play (where she is always in charge), arousal, discomfort, awkwardness, and desire. In exchange she asks for your courage, openness, playfulness, or vulnerability - you get what you give with this one.
PIPI (Anthony de Bone & Fabio M Silva)
"PIPI IN THE MIRACLE GARDEN"
Since 2017, Fábio M Silva and Anthony de Bono have been performing as a duo under the moniker PIPI. Their work references an amalgam of classical art, pop culture, religion and mythology through the use of contemporary surrealism, creating abstract autobiographical performances.
This new performance features the artists completely immersing themselves in a spatial negotiation with their installation THE GARDEN OF PIPI DELIGHTS, activating the space through a series of actions and gestural responses. The resulting durational performance is an uncompromising and unfiltered portal into the artists' minds, their deconstructive thoughts on societal structures and perceptions of reality, whilst also performing an occasional miracle.
"Solitary Devil Prince" / "Siren on PMS against sharks"/ "EqualiBee" / "Aurora the sightless Oracle" / "Dalia the Delirius Gravity Defier"
Pumpernicki (Dominique Schwenner) wears many hats. Since high school, she has danced as a tribal fusion belly dancer first trained in traditional Egyptian and performed in local theatre. Aligned with belly dance came the flow art of fire with which she has toured many festivals balancing her fire sword in redefied gravity. At the core of Nicki’s dance as well as theatrical performances is the belief that art is powerful in every form, as such she swears by its therapeutic healing. The ability to provoke thought, expand minds, and reach into other realms while inviting the audience to join through energetic connection is the essence of each encounter. Pumpernicki's passion for the arts additionally has manifested in more than a decade of arts management experience in NY theaters and Berlin productions. In addition to this, she is a trained consent performance facilitator, newbie drag king, and lover of evoking emotions and reactions.
a naked creature illuminated by violent images n blood
it stares at the people in front of it as in a sad, sad zoo.
the room is spare and with dim purple lights.
In half darkness and alone with its bass guitar, voice, drum machine, and closed eyes.

Find Ruco in Overmorrow doing a wide range of intimate experimental performances! That sexy guy wanking off in the living room? That little girl that asked about your father?

His crooked grin, tacky but magical appearance, and utter shamelessness will make you feel the world changed a little in the instant you saw him.
"Natura morta con figura mobile"
butoh dancer, performer, independent choreographer
A body in perennial isolation
slowly losing all traces of humanity
dissolving into living organic matter.
Morphing, shapeshifting, embodying memories of a flower; an insect; an old woman; a ghost; an animal; a playful child; forgotten archetypes still alive in the depth of the flesh.
A branch of dead dry wood
sad epitaph for disappearing nature.
Useless plastic emergency sheets.
A post-apocalyptic omen - and a hymn to resilience.
4 hours durational performance of which the spectator is invited to catch a glimpse, a fragment, of an ongoing transformation.
There is no life on Mars.

First love isn't always so practical.
At times it is less than dreamy.
At times, it is the stuff of nightmares that teaches us about life.
