BERLIN IS BURNING
FUNKIN’ STYLEZ BERLIN meets BERLIN VOGUING OUT
From 11th 13th of December the Berlin qualifier of the Funkin’ Stylez Festival 2015 will once again take place at HAU2 and this time it will be a cooperative project with Berlin Voguing Out. As the first European event ever to include Voguing into its program in 2006 Funkin’ Stylez will provide you with a fusion of two internationally established festivals. You will witness an encompassing and exciting line up with Germany’s largest urban dance festival, Funkin’ Stylez and Germany’s only Voguing festival, Berlin Voguing Out coming together. The winners of these qualifiers will be invited to the final event of summer 2016!
This year Funkin´ Stylez celebrates its 11th anniversary and counts among the largest and most important events of its kind. Every year it provides the diverse range of urban dance styles with a platform and creates opportunities of exchange for thousands of dancers. Funkin’ Stylez was initiated by Takao Baba and Kadir “Amigo“ Memis in 2004 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The yearly festival Berlin Voguing Out has become an international and cultural nodal point for the entire Voguing movement in Europe. Aiming at establishing Voguing culture in Berlin and Germany, dancer Georgina Leo Melody and communication consultant Mic Oala, organized a multitude of events under the organizational roof of Berlin Voguing Out, ranging from Berlin’s own community event “Tit Bit Ball“ to dance workshops all over the country.
