2013 Us inc.

Us inc.
Curated by Amy Cade & Leen Horsford

Us inc. (Amy Cade and Leen Horsford) is a curatorial collective that believes “it is not our differences that divide us, rather it is our inability to recognise, accept and celebrate those differences.” (Audre Lorde) So, as part of Month of Performance Art 2013, from 29th May to 31st May, Us inc. are going to celebrate those differences. Bringing people together in one space through performative events that play with the performativity of gender and sexuality, it is a project about Us and the fact that when it comes to gender and sexuality it really is not black and white.

Us inc. invite you to warm up the 2nd night of Us inc. come down for a tasty BBQ at 17.00, before gathering inside the venue at 20.00 for XXX story time.

3-6€ entry with all donations going to Lamdba, a Berlin organisation supporting young LGBT people.

We are opening up the space for anyone and everyone to come and share their story. With no documentation of the evening, what happens at this story night stays at the story night! Through sharing our intimate, funny, embarrassing, and empowering experiences of gender and sexuality, we will celebrate our differences.

Join us to either share or listen to Us. Discover a new perspective, laugh at a shared experience, be moved at someone’s bravery, and simply be fascinated by the beauty
and diversity of our individuality.

If you would like to share your story we would love to hear from you. Please email usincberlin@gmail.com
