Bad Bruises are very proud to have been a part of this short film about the UNSCENE with some of Berlin's finest artists and creatives.
Culture is an Expression created by Artists. Most remain underfunded or ignored.

No culture. No future.

By Cray Cray production featuring many incredible artists based here in Berlin and featuring some of our BB family and our most recent projects this year with Overmorrow and The Peepshow at Renate.

Dearest darlings!

It is officially the end of summer! The Autumn Equinox is here we now slowly slip into the darker months and the nights grow longer.

Here's a little reminder of the blissful day we were so grateful to have had the opportunity to host a couple of weeks ago at Else Klub.

Our Midsummer of Lost Dreams event was so initimite, so loving and we felt so much support from you all!! Thank you!!

It's been a very difficult year for everyone and we're all so unsure of what's next in this wild ride of 2020. But we wish you all the strength and power and remember you are not alone in this feeling of confusion, or sadness. And if you feel like these dark months are getting too dark please remember to reach out to your friends, family, professionals. There's always someone there to light your way

'I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine'

William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream...

Thank you to everyone who joined us last week for our Midsummer 'of lost' Dreams - Bad Bruises Open Air ELSE

We had such and amazing day frolicking and dancing with you. Thank you all for respecting the rules and following all the guidance that was given. Big thanks to the crew and staff at Else and of course all our delicious artists and DJs that transported us to a Midsummer Dreamworld.

We can't wait to be back in full at some point soon, we're being told April 2021 is when clubs (maybe) can return in their full capacities. But in the meantime keep an eye on what we're doing next with some smaller more intimate events 🥰. I know these aren't quite the same but your support and love during this time has already been overwhelming and we know you all understand the situation. 🙏

As some of you know we've been actively trying to support the scene here as much as possible ourselves and have created the Overmorrow Berlin Project with Renate and Trash Era as well as many other amazing Berlin collectives. This is a direct way to support Berlins vibrant art scene. Also our other little baby The Peepshow is now in its last weeks due to weather. All of these projects are a non profit and are going directly back to the creative minds involved. So! If you're yearning for some creative inspirations be sure to come and check them out.

Thanks again. You really are a special audience and we love you. 💋

Dearest Darlings.

With the heaviest of hearts we have received the bad news... The House of Red Doors: Masquerade of Madness II that was to be held on March 26th can no longer take place.

Sadly, due to the COVID-19 virus and the steps being put in place to prevent the spread of the virus, Renate is closing until further notice in the interests of safety. This was not a decision taken lightly and will have a serious personal impact for all the staff, crew and artists but is in the best interests of our guests and the wider society.

We respect and understand this decision and we hope you do to. We're so sorry and we can only hope that all of us taking similar actions can keep those most vulnerable safe in these uncertain times.

We don’t know how long this will last or how much this will impact us all. We just wish you all a safe and peaceful time ahead.

Take care of each other. We love you.

Bad Bruises

*We will contact RA and ensure all presale tickets are refunded etc.

Were you there as we hurtled Deep into the farthest reaches of our universe? Did you dance in Madness with the masked beauties of Berlin? Did you Frolic through our very own garden of earthly delights under the Midsummer sun? Explore the realms of hell in Sodom and Gomorrah and explore the Dark Arts for Black Magick! Did you run away back through time to the Circus? And did you get primal as we roared welcome to the Jungle?

The energy, passion and creativity that you all inject into this weird and wonderful world is something we adore you for, what we have created together is unique, special and we are truly grateful - It’s been an amazing year and we really appreciate you all so much!

A massive kiss and Bravo to you all! And we’re so excited to see what the future shall bring…

The first stop and the next time we open The House of Red Doors will be for our 4th Birthday ! And of course we are going to celebrate (By popular demand) in the most appropriate fashion…

As we bring this decade to a close we’re entering into a new era, our very own roaring twenties, unsere eigenen goldenen Zwanziger – So let’s welcome this decade with a bang as we welcome you one again to The House of Red Doors: Weimar Berlin – January 30th 2020.

Due to increasingly insane demand we will be announcing an exact date and time when the tickets will go on sale – To be informed of the event page, tickets and everything else BB related first you have to sign up to the Bad Bruises newsletter here: http://tiny.cc/ivwbhz
