Desert raisins require smoke from a fire in order for their seeds to germinate.
The „ Katakombe“, centre for performing arts The „brand new“ Katakomben has arrived! We are a team of five artists (Frank Kraft, Felix Häckell, Uwe Mayer, Stefan Sing and Josh Dyffort), who have taken it upon ourselves to rent, renovate, and carry the financial risks of the Katakomben.
our goal is to maintain this renowned training area, so that performing artists have a place in Berlin to develop their skills via workshops, networking, and general overall exchange and inspiration with the other artists. Important for us is to keep the financial costs of the Katakomben to an absolute minimal. Hence, there will no longer be personnel at the desk and no more hourly rates available. We want to keep the Katakomben clean and pleasant. this is why we have put so much effort in all the new renovations and also why anyone caught destroying the space will be severely reprimanded. We also want that the Katakomben can maintain itself financially; therefore only people who have paid the fees are allowed to use the space, no exceptions, ever. Our interest in the Katakomben is NOT to make a profit from our investments. We intend to take any and all excess money that the Katakomben may eventually bring in to reinvest in further renovations for the betterment of all and/or to make the prices for its members even lower. So far we have already invested in a new floor complete with soundproofing insulation, painted the walls and even the ceilings gleaming white, insulated the heater and added a lot of mirrors. For legislative reasons we have created the cooperative „ Katakomben e.V.“ all of you have to become members for a yearly fee of 10€. Not til then training is possible. By becoming a member you are allotted a discount for events and workshops, and we are given a little bit of money for all the necessary renovation costs. the rooms The Katakomben is 500qm which can then be separated via curtains into 9 independent training areas. we have four rigging-points for aerial-work. besides the large main room, there is also a private 50qm „yoga room“, and also another 20qm room with a low ceiling. Also inclusive in the main room is a kitchen. All rooms are available for training, the giving and taking of workshops, and for rent (hourly or daily). prices To be allowed to train you have to become a member of the „Katakomben e.V.“. this will cost you 10€ a year -12 month contract the monthly flat rate is 60€ (payments must be done at least quarterly) -3 month or more contract the monthly flat rate is 75€ (payments must be done at least one month in advance) -1 month fee is 90€ -daily rate is 5€ -price for workshops and exclusive rentals depends on enquiry We also maintain the right to change the price system if need be for all who are not previously under a signed contract.

Last Update regarding personal Equipment:
If you know of someone not in town, please help them move it.
If you still have something here, please get in touch asap.
We ll keep all the stuff until end of June safely stored, then we will have to give the remains away.
Thanks for your understanding.
Personal equipment is ready to be picked up again..
Pick up time from 18:00-20:00 for the next three days.. meet outside of the katakomben
The Space is trashed from the fire and careful estimations lead to a prognosis of 3 months closing time before we can reopen.
What exactly caused the fire has not! been 100% identified, but we will keep you posted.
Also thank you very much for all the offers of help and wanting to donate. For now we will still have to wait if the insurance company covers the damage and professionals must first clear the carcinogenic damage to the main areas before we can go in there and do any fine tuning again.
When and if we can use a hand we will keep you posted.
For the good news
There were no serious injuries and like a miracle nearly all personal equipment is undamaged, except a bit dirty.
Nevertheless we need everybody to pick up their belongings ASAP so we can efficiently start the renovations.
Please contact Declan Mee or Oli Pinchbeck (on Facebook) to arrange a pick up time.
Unfortunately, in the meantime you´ll have to search an alternative training space.
The Just Juggling Center (Zossenerstr. Kreuzberg ) offers open training from 10:00-16:00 for a fee of 3€ _limited hight
Tanzartstudio (kurt schumacher platz) for a fee of 3€ until 14:00 _hight 3.3m
Ballhaus Rixdorf (kreuzberg)_day fee 5€_message them for details
Vuesch (Friedrichshain)_ hight 5m_ message them for details

Hi all, in case you still have personal belongings and or equipment in the Katakomben space, please make sure you pick it up as soon as possible. If you know of someone currently out of town incapable of picking it up by themselves, maybe you can assist them by taking it for them in the meantime. Until Sunday contact Declan Me +4917630376657 to arrange a pick up time. Thank you for your cooperation, the sooner we have the Space cleared the sooner the restoration can start.
Unfortunately until further notice the Katakomben will remain closed, until the inspection has been finished and the space is restored. Last night a fire broke out, as far as we can judge no major damage happened to equipment, but the space isn't suitable for training until restoration happens. We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.
