Berlin sky: Grey with a chance for rain. The villagers-to-be are gathering outside the Uferstudios. The village. Three empty studios on the compound. So far. We break the seal, Christian opens the tabernacle, a huge blue container. Couches, tables, lamps, chairs, shelves. Furniture we bring in, our first collaboration, passing on in a chain as they do in Hollywood movies when neighbours pass on buckets to extinguish a house on fire in the neighbourhood. Bringing in the furniture to start furnishing the village. But where to? We leave the couches, chairs, tables as there were coincidentally placed on the floor and sit down. Have a break. Have a conversation about practicalities. Keys, water, heating, kitchen, menu, allergies, and then of course the big WWWH: what where when how. ‚Why’ is not a question as we have already accepted the invitation to come and work together. At 5, the first session of the The Village Choir-to-become takes place in Studio 14. Singadingdong.
