Plays with Things Among Days (15 min)

While the dancefloor is mythologised as a space for connection, any committed
creature of the night knows the real action takes place in the toilet cubicle – at
once the club’s engine room and its “confessional” booth. EX depicts the realities
of these sacred spaces with a nauseating intimacy, bundling us in with Diana and a
flurry of gorgeous party people for one night of sublime chaos.

Opening the door to Berlin’s notoriously private nightlife, EX invites us to see
more than reckless hedonism. As its characters share stories about lives lived at
the fringes of society, a deeper connection unravels, sparking soul-baring
moments of clarity, acceptance, and unapologetic truth.

Content Warning: depictions of drug use

In English, French, German and Russian with English subtitles.
