Sheer Horror




„He has his father’s eyes“ – that is moment in which everything goes haywire in Polanski’s horror classic „Rosemary’s Baby“. Just like the one in which Lila Crane realises that Norman Bates’ mother is anything but alive. Or when Samara comes crawling out of the television in “The Ring”. We love and hate those moments in which we really want to run and hide but just can’t stop watching. We want the horror. The creeps, the shudders, the pounding heart. Speaking of Samara: breaking through the seemingly safe telly screen was such a genius stylistic device because it robbed us of the fourth wall. What if the horror is no longer encased in the TV, monitor or display but all around me, proximate and real? The Swedish director Jakop Ahlbom and his ensemble are bringing the thrill of the movie genre to the theatre stage. The piece HORROR is an homage to the scary movie, an ode to the obsession that ruthlessly involves the viewer, leaving him unprotected. It tells the story of a woman who returns to the house of her family where she was tortured for years. An empty house during a stormy night. The soulless woman confronts her past – all the way to the bloody end. It’s horror without words. Dance, pantomime, light effects and music completely replace dialogues. The actors succeed in creating a breath-taking atmosphere with their mere presence. The piece has everything horror needs: reference to the greats of the genre, drama, fear, inevitability, shock and mind games. But also splattering blood, zombie fights, surrealism and absurd humour. We say: go and see this! But make sure to file your nails first, otherwise you might seriously injure your neighbour when you clutch his arm in fear.

Gourmandise and Groove

Describe a perfect day. Well, that’s a no-brainer for us. Inevitably, it’s going to include friends, perfect weather, really good music (live if possible) and really delicious food (in a non-bourgeois atmosphere). Which means there are quite a few perfect days coming up, because our favourite delivery service client is going on a Bites & Vibes Summer Tour. Which means: all of the above. The best restaurants from the foodora portfolio are presenting their culinary creations in a street food format. Hand-made pasta, juicy burgers, exotic curries or pimped deli classics can be enjoyed while sauntering along – and that’s going on in 5 German cities. The street food markets in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Düsseldorf and Cologne are accompanied by acoustic delicacies. Selected live acts and DJs deliver the beats to match the bites. The culinary kick-off is taking place this weekend in the capital. So we’ve already started reducing our daily food-intake to make room for fermented super-cabbage from Fräulein Kimchi, vegan Donuts by Brammibal, literarily inspired burger creations by Schiller Burger and further foodie surprises. That will, we rejoice, be a perfect day!

Yvonne Kollosche


Yvonne Kollosche

The 2 Minute Interview

Just a few days ago, Yvonne’s answer to her whereabouts would have started with a big fat B. But now, she’s set up shop in Munich and is hissing the muxmäuschenwild-flag in Bavaria’s capital. Say hello to MMW MUC! Gosh, we don’t know where to even start when describing Yvonne. We’ll try to keep it simple. Not long ago, Yvonne joined our team as Senior PR Consultant and it probably took her less than 30 seconds to have not only us, but also each and every editor across the country wrapped around her finger. She is always dressed to impress, is never short of a cynical joke, has a big mouth and an even bigger heart. We have grown very, very fond of Yvonne and her leaving has left us with mixed feelings. Yvonne, it was great to have you here! And quite frankly, the fact that you’ll now have to commute from MUC to B instead of B to MUC is entirely your problem.


Name: Yvonne Kollosche
Age: 33
City: Munich
Job: PR Pro
Shoe size: 39
Favourite Magazine: Harper’s Bazaar

Can you feel it?


Can you feel it?

You know that moment when you are all there, completely at ease with yourself – content, grounded, balanced. The moment you free yourself from anything that keeps you small, feeling your greatness, your strength and your potential. The moment you truly feel your environment and feel connected. The moment you realize you can achieve anything and everything you need to do so already lies within you. This is exactly what Somuchmore is all about. It’s about unwinding, making progress, finding your true self. Earlier this year, Somuchmore launched their holistic platform for fitness, health, nutrition and mindfulness in Berlin. One single card gives you access to the city’s best gyms and yoga studios so you can choose from different coaches, classes and workshops and, and, and ­– without signing up or worrying about long-term membership contracts. Exercise your body, mind and soul – anytime and anyplace – try new things or follow your favourite yogi. This concept has been so successful, that Somuchmore’s service is now also available in Hamburg, Munich and London. More cities throughout Germany and Europe will follow soon. (The card grants cross-city admission, too!) And since everything has been happening so quickly, there’s not even been time to say hello properly. That’s no way to start an inspiring friendship, is it? Somuchmore wants to make up for that and is inviting you to the Somuchmore Holistic Days so everyone can get acquainted. Three days in three cities ­– devoted to inspiration, experiences and self-awareness (Munich – May 10th, Hamburg – May 16th, Berlin – May 17th). Mind-expanding activities and inspiring guest contributions about attentiveness, nutrition and fitness encourage to participate and share thoughts, give an interesting insight and provide absolutely useful ideas for a daily development of body, mind and spirit. The agenda follows Somuchmore’s principle that we can only fully reach our potential and truly find ourselves trough a combination of motion, mindfulness, a conscious diet and a certain joie de vivre. Have the experts put your workout schedule together for you on site, boost your energy with smoothies and get to know coaches and cooperating studios. We’ll be there too!

Joseph meets DJane


Joseph meets DJane

Throw that art out the window – we want to dance! This Friday, arty meets party at the Pinakothek in Munich. Starting at 8 p.m., the rotunda in the centre of the museum turns into a dancefloor. Young art guides will be partying as well and will be there to answer questions on content and meaning until midnight. Munich based Djs such as Baal, Liza, Glaskin + Essika will make for a clubby atmosphere with electronic beats. Video artist Betty Mü will be performing live at the rotunda and the conservatory will be used as a lounge area where current exhibition content will be displayed on the wall. Photo booths, cool drinks and all sorts of bizarre stuff will keep you entertained. Our highlight of the evening is the Board Trade: artists auctioning handpainted skateboard decks. However, money can’t buy these art objects –  the bidders have to pay with personal engagement and creativity. Services and home-made products can be put up as bids. For example cooking together, barhopping through the city’s best clubs or a climbing tour in the Alps. The artists themselves decide which bid wins. Tickets are all sold out, but there will be extra tickets sold at the box office. For every leaving visitor, someone new can step in – so don’t miss all the fun! And remember, it’s all about the art.


#ARTisFACTION | 24.04.2015, from 8 p.m. | The Pinakothek Museums in the Kunstareal Munich, Barer Straße 29, 80799 München | Admission: 9 Euros | Facebook Eventlink

Nikias Hofmann


Nikias Hofmann

The 2 Minute Interview

Nikias Hofmann is a DJ and knows the Munich party scene like no one else. Together with his comrades, he runs the HEART, one of the most dashing spots in the Bavarian capital. As a child he wanted to be a bass player but settled for turntables instead. Thank God – we would be missing out on so much otherwise! Apparently, he has no secrets to keep, so we just asked him everything. He told us about his cure for a killer hangover (coke and chocolate – really?!), his superhero powers and his favourite four-letter words. Conclusion: cool name, cool kid.


Name: Nikias Claudio Enrique Hofmann
Age: 37
Location: München
Occupation: Amusement
Shoe size: 43
Favourite Drink: Espressotini


Red or blue? Definitly blue! Must be because of my job.


Where do you go out clubbing? To our pivate club, the Circle Of Trust.


What does Munich have to offer exclusively? Well, the Oktoberfest and the football club FC Bayern are quite dominant, but if you can block that out there is quite a lot: the Eisbach (part of the river Isar) and the Privatklub, for example.


You have friends visiting for 24 hours, where do you take them? To places where you really have time for each other – parks, the mountains, lakes. Always enjoying great food and even better drinks. And then we’d go dancing.


What did you want to become as a child? I thought bass players were awesome. I wanted to be one, too.


What have you been trying to accomplish for a while but just can`t seem to finish? My second mix tape. Since 2004! But it will be out really soon, I keep telling myself everyday. ;-)


If you could go back in time to change something, what would it be? I think it’s important to be at peace with one’s own faults and personal failures. Life doesn’t work without the mistakes we make. Therefore, I never regret and try to make every day a little better. So I’d really prefer time to pass more slowly, to get more out of it…


What are your three favourite curse words? They’re very ordinary. Shit – fuck – shit etc.


How do get over a hangover? You should really get to like it and and as the years go by, it will become like a good friend that simply is a part of you. Coke and chocolate always helps though, too.


Another word for synonym? One word? Meaningsibling?


Which celebrity would you like to go out for a drink with?
 Oscar Wilde


If we came to visit you, what would you cook for us? Tournedos Rossini – great dish, great cook, great person.


What are you afraid of? I only worry about my family and friends.


Which superpower would you like to have? The power to fly!


What would you change, if you had the power to do so? Oh, there is so much to be done. Nowadays, there are far too many rules and regulations for my liking. Our rights of freedom are limited on the pretext of reason. That’s the first thing I would change. But as I said, there is so much to be done…


What should no one know about you? I think it’s too late for secrets for me.


Which question should we have asked?

 Why everything that causes attention doesn’t nessecesarily have to be respected.


Last words: There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in!

Get a whiff of Berlin’s, Hamburg’s and Munich’s freshest air

Get a whiff of Berlin’s, Hamburg’s and Munich’s freshest air

Frau Toni should definitely ring a bell with any cosmopolitan who has a thing for fine scents. Her individually created fragrances are all made in Berlin, after all. In perfume paradise, located on the Kreuzberg-end of Friedrichstraße, 30 large apothecary bottles are all lined up and ready to be opened. The smell of lime blossoms and pure violets unfolds, as well as compositions with Berlin flair such as zesty „Berlin Summer“ or spicy „Eau de Berlin“ – the metropolitan zeitgeist in a bottle. Frau Toni is actually called Stefanie Hanssen and is strictly speaking the granddaughter of Antonia – the real „Frau Toni“ and an utterly wonderful smelling person. Together with her partner Christopher Niedermeier, Stefanie Hansson is truly dedicated to keeping the inherited passion for fragrances alive. For the KaDeWe-Group the two have now captured, reinterpreted and bottled up the scents of Germany’s three largest cities. Eau de Cologne is sooo yesterday… Ladies and gentleman, we proudly present: Eau de Berlin, Eau d’Hamburg and Eau de Munich. If you´re thinking subway, doggy doo and neighbourhood niff, you`ve got it all wrong. Berlin is vibrant and smells of bergamot, lemons and water lilies, cedar wood and cardamom. Hamburg, however, is straightforward yet elegant with maritime notes, spicy peppermint, fine sandalwood and iris. And Munich? Munich shines! Bergamot, white tea and rose blossoms mixed with fresh coriander, amber and musk. We couldn’t really make up our minds which one we liked best. Staying true to Berlin, we tried the bottled labelled 030 first, of course. But we have to say, 040 and 089 have indulged our senses just as much. We’ll just have to have them all! Drop by the perfume manufactory near Checkpoint Charly and sniff for yourselves. Shop at KaDeWe, Alsterhaus and Oberpollinger, order your individual eau de perfume here or be quick and send an email to with the subject ‚DES RIECHT FEI KNORKE DIGGER‘– we’re giving away three sets with all three fragrances for your olfactory city trip. Oh, and just for the record: you don’t necessarily have to live in the city to smell like it…
Frau Tonis Parfum | scent-box KaDeWe Group, contents: 3 x 7,5ml, varieties: 030 Berlin, 040 Hamburg & 089 Munich | |
