The next Sensory Jam in Berlin: Sat 13. 4. 2023, 7pm – 10pm
Sensory Jam is life with all of your six senses. It’s a jam with multisensory experiences including taste, smell, touch, movement in space and everything else you can possibly imagine. As a starting point we are blindfolded when experiencing. We provide blindfolds for everyone.
The Sensory Jam is based on the immersive performance concept The Sensory Cocktail Bar by The Center for Everything. If you have enjoyed The Sensory Cocktail Bar, this gives you a possibility to play further with the concept. If you have never heard of it, no worries. You will get all the information at the jam.
When you register for the jam, you will also receive a short piece of information how to prepare for the jam. However, you can also just arrive on the spot – we have everything ready, both the blindfolds and materials for the senses. Do take clothes you feel good moving about.
THE STRUCTURE OF THE SESSION
19 – 19.30 Starting together, safety and basic information
19.30 – 20.30 Testing of sensory cocktails and preparation
20.30 – 22.00 Serving of sensory cocktails
You can come and go as you like during the session, but at the moment we ask everyone to arrive for the beginning so everyone shares the same information about safety. We also recommend staying until the end as it strengthens the experience of the jam.

Letting go of the control of the sight changes your perception of others, space and boundaries. Please consider whether this is something you’re ready for. There are multiple safety precautions in place to keep everyone safe, but the ability to recognise and articulate your boundaries to others, and respect the boundaries of others is essential.
For this jam we sell tickets beforehand so we can anticipate the amount of people attending. This has to do with safety and so we can prepare the blindfolds beforehand. The blindfolds are carefully washed after each use and handled hygienically before given to you. The space is ventilated regularly.
Please ask for further information about our safety precautions – or anything else – by sending a message to centerforeverything at gmail dot com. You can also use this same e-mail for any feedback afterwards.
We’ll take some photos and possibly shoot some video at the jam. If you’d rather not be seen in these, come and tell it to the facilitator and we’ll sort it out.
Blindfold jam is committed to the principles of safer space. This means respect for all genders, sexualities, backgrounds, bodies and abilities. Racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, other oppressive behaviour or harassment is not allowed. We strive to make the space as safe as we possibly can, but we cannot guarantee a space that is totally free from triggers or feelings of insecurity.
