COMING UP May 2024:
RENTING BERLIN

After the Netflix hit series SELLING SUNSET here comes the TVWOW Original RENTING BERLIN! The two O-Group real estate agents Bev and Terry set off for Berlin to explore a new market. They quickly realize that the demand is huge, people are desperate, while the properties on offer are extremely poor and shitty. Fortunately, they meet the rich real estate heiress Amantha – who arranges some dubious deals for them. In the end, they have to decide whether to play along with the nasty game or opt for humanity.

Production Team

Lara Ledwa, art historian and gender scientist, has already worked in several projects at the intersection of queer-feminist and anti-capitalist theory as well as artistic practice and political activism. She taught feminist theory at the Weißensee School of Art and gave several project seminars there, from which, among other things, the exhibition „exhibiting queer“ at the Gay Museum in 2014 emerged. Currently she works at the Spinnboden Lesbian Archive & Library Berlin. In her studies of gender studies she met Monika Freinberger. She sees herself as a queerfeminist-internationalist activist and performing artist and celebrates the diverse varieties of femininity in her work, for example as part of her performance projekt “How to find Love” with Lola Fuchs. Before art, she trained as a nurse – now she works as a theater and film actress, among other things. For this she studied acting at the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Art and there she met Samuel Simon. After graduating, Samuel worked at various theaters, from 2017 to 2020 in the ensemble at Schauspiel Frankfurt. A central role in his work plays the examination of masculinity/ies, for which he also uses videos as a form of artistic expression. Artistic and technical assistance: Nina von Seckendorff
