Poetry slam was long considered a youth culture. But now experienced poets have been performing on Berlin's spoken word stages for over 20 years. A lot has developed in that time: styles have changed, new artists have come along. At the Fusion Slam, oldschool poets from the early days and newcomers from the modern scene will compete against each other, and you will decide who takes home the victory: the experienced slam warhorses or the young savages?

The Ballhaus Wedding offers this extraordinary show a hall that could not be more appropriate: Between chandeliers and peeling plaster, gold-ornamented entrée and, well, Wedding, that is.

What is the Fusion Slam Wedding?

The Fusion Slam Wedding is the Kiezpoeten format for crossover shows and unusual poetry slams: Every month, guests are surprised with a different art that enriches the evening: Art song, drama, impro theatre, stand-up, piano and jazz are planned... And don't worry: if a format is particularly well received, it will of course be repeated!

Where does the Fusion Slam take place?

The regular location of the Fusion Slam is the Ballhaus Wedding - a deadly chic hall for about 150 guests, near Osloer Straße. So Wedding finally gets its own regular slam again. Only, as befits Wedding, a little different from other slams. From time to time, the Kiezpoeten will also take the Fusion Slam to other locations for "away games".

How can you perform here?

For most editions of the Fusion Slam at Ballhaus Wedding, there will be 1-2 places on the open list - depending on the edition, mostly on the poetry side, but sometimes also on the "other" side. Just check for the tag "Open List" at the respective event and register via
