THE ONE Grand Show

For "THE ONE" Parisian fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier has designed over 500 costumes for the more than 100 performers.
The show featuring live music, dance, special effects and acrobatics does not have an explicit narrative structure but represents the dream of a young man who is looking for his one true love. The opening scene is an underground party in an old shut down theater (for which the designer was inspired by several visits at the club Berghain in Berlin) and the show then takes the young man from one place to another.
The show is incredibly complex and the special effects with the lights, waterfalls of gold dust or rain on stage were incredible. The acrobats were breathtaking and for us one of the highlights of the show is the incredibly long girl's row.
THE ONE Grand Show at the Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin is very colourful and artistic, we absolutely loved the diversity of the costumes and the song of the opening scene and the finale is very catchy and hard to forget.

L:A Bruket | Tvål body wash No. 104 Bergamot / Patchouli

Basis of the philosophy of the Swedish brand L:A BRUKET is to take care not only for the body and the skin but also for nature and the environment. The products are created to nourish, protect, soften and heal the skin worn by the sea, the coast and the salt, or any other environmental influences. The ingredients come from the sea and from land and the products are as organic and environmentally friendly as possible.
The L:A Bruket Tvål No. 104 Bergamot / Patchouli is a highly moisturizing body wash that gently cleanses and soothes the skin while nourishing it with highest quality natural and organic ingredients.
The essential oils from bergamot and patchouli create a wonderful fresh scent that is stimulating and refreshing.
The body wash creates a very gentle foam on the skin and a little goes a long way, it leaves the skin soft, purified and nourished. We like how the refreshing scent lingers on the skin for quite a while after using the body wash.

Art Unlimited 2017 | Susan Hiller - Die Gedanken sind frei

Susan Hillers' installation Die Gedanken sind frei (thoughts are free) is a sculptural display of 100 political songs from different cultures, political movements and eras she had personally collected. In the middle of the installation stands a customized Wurlitzer "one more time" walnut juke-box that plays the songs.
The visitor can either select a song or listen to the choices of others. The walls of the room are covered with the lyrics of each song and next to the headphones there is a fully illustrated Song book filled with the lyrics, texts and images selected by the artist.
We think this is a wonderful work as music can unite people and the songs are now more relevant than ever. Sitting in her installation and listening to the music, every visitor is encouraged to think about the lyrics and the meaning it has for him or her.
