An ice skating rink arrives at the gargantuan Halle am Berghain, soundtracked by an array of adventurous artists. Bring your skates (or rent a pair) and practice your ice dancing skills to eclectic and free-roaming DJ sets.
Forward-thinking club artists Yoshitaka Hikawa, Leevisa, and Frikimo provide the soundtrack. Warm up with a hot drink and watch the spectacle under an intimate light array courtesy of Berlin’s premier light artist Christopher Bauder, who contributes the intimate light installation FREQUENCIES. Using the live DJ sets as material, Bauder translates sound waves of different frequencies into a rapidly-changing colour palette composed of hundreds of pixels.
Please note: Ice skating at the Eishalle is undertaken at your own risk. Up to 40 people can skate simultaneously. Children under 16 must be accompanied by adults (no children under 3 allowed). Neither CTM / DISK Initiative Bild & Ton e.V. nor Berghain Ostgut GmbH are liable for any injuries. There will be no lockers on site, so please be considerate of what belongings you bring. You can rent skates for half an hour for 2 € or bring your own. The ice itself is synthetic, but please dress warmly.
There will be a bar with hot and cold beverages (but better not to skate and drink!), and lastly, please be careful and considerate of one another!
No photos allowed in the Halle. Limited capacity; first come, first served.

As a DJ in the underground clubs of Seoul, Leevisa has always had a desire to create art both in- and outside of new nightlife culture; that aspiration was what drove her to make her own music. In the middle of our chaotic times, she began to realise the important roles music can play in sociocultural contexts, and started exploring forward-thinking sounds.
