Lake Studios Berlin is a shared living and dance production space for 9 diverse residents (short and long term). They are primarily freelance movement artists working in diverse styles and methods of dance, yet there is a constant reflection which takes place between them daily; in form of dinner conversations, showings/discussions and other methods of exchange. The studios have existed as an artist run community living and dance space since May of 2013. Along with the two sprung wooden floor studios, there are diverse facilities alongside one another including a large garden, a wood workshop for set and prop building, sewing machines, a media lab/library, as well as some technical equipment -- such as a beamer, theater light set up, piano, cameras, mixer, and sound system. The space is unique because of its calm and concentrated working atmosphere as well as the friendly community of artists supporting the creation of work. Opportunities for showings are organized monthly, as well as professional trainings and curated workshops to support the movement of ideas and choreographic research.
We rent out our space for:
Film and Photography
Classes and Workshops
Open studio showings
Documentary about Lake Studios creation by Arthur Conrad Kunitsu
"This is our space. We live here. Dance here. Breathe here. After one and a half years of planning, we started in April 2013, converting this place from an old carpentry warehouse into our residence dance studios. We laid down each and every board of the floors: hammered, nailed, banged, and screwed them all in. In the garden, we dug up the cement, hoed the new earth, and planted seeds. We poured our sweat and hearts out into the space so that one day, we could enjoy the joys and comforts of our freedom. Freedom is dancing. Freedom is laughing. Freedom is being able to express yourself through movement. Freedom is sharing this all with you. We welcome you to share this little oasis with us."
