My Worst Nightmare: Gabriele, Italy

February‘s theme for Voices of Berlin is My Worst Nightmare.   Gabriele, Italy “To be honest, I can’t really remember dreams… but my worst fear at the moment is the future really. It sounds deep, but I guess everyone who is studying music or everyone who is in a similar situation to mine has this kind of thing where you think: Am I really doing the right thing? Or will I end up at 30 wondering why I chose to do music? It’s mostly a career thing. I don’t want to end up doing the wrong job every day for the rest of my life. So that’s my biggest fear.. Ending up in the wrong place and being forced to stay there.”   Voices of Berlin is Berlin Untelevised‘s monthly Lives project. This project is to show the connection behind real lives within this both crazy and wonderful city by asking it’s many residents one question or theme...

My Worst Nightmare: Moa, Sweden

February‘s theme for Voices of Berlin is My Worst Nightmare.   Moa, Sweden “I’m very fascinated by dreams that I remember. I know one thing that just terrifies me and will always go back and forth in my brain. It’s common: being claustrophobic. Being locked into something somehow like… I’ve had really weird dreams. So, one that I had a lot when I was younger was that I was in a tunnel and, it sounds really dramatic, but there was a light in front at the end of the tunnel. It was like I was in the underground and the walls became smaller and smaller and I was going quicker and quicker but I never reached the light. There’s a whole thing about being crushed while going quicker, not getting out and you have no control. Then there’s one that’s quite funny that I had when I was about 14. I was actually screaming...

My Worst Nightmare: Tal, Israel

February‘s theme for Voices of Berlin is My Worst Nightmare.   Tal, Israel   “My worst nightmare is being on a plane, crashing in the middle of the ocean and surviving, being alone in the middle of the ocean. Not finding your way out, just being there. Time goes by, and I’m just there with nothing to do except float. If you’re crashing and you’re dead, you’re dead it’s over but if you survive, it’s just now it’s just existing. I don’t even mean the sharks and things happening and the big waves and stones, sure that’s scary, but mainly the loneliness of just floating in the middle of the ocean, not knowing where you are or if anyone will ever come.”   Voices of Berlin is Berlin Untelevised‘s monthly Lives project.

My Worst Nightmare: Joe, Britain

February‘s theme for Voices of Berlin is My Worst Nightmare.   Joe, Britain “I had a recurring nightmare when I was a kid. It was that I was falling down a bottomless hole and being chased by a giant leaf. I used to call out in my sleep “I’m afraid of the giant leaf! I’m afraid of the giant leaf!” And I was, I was terrified I used to wake up in a cold sweat and crying, but I was young you know, 8, 9, 10 maybe. I’m not sure there’s not much meaning you can put on that, maybe it was a premonition about an environmental disaster? But I don’t like interpreting dreams.”   Voices of Berlin is Berlin Untelevised‘s monthly Lives project. This project is to show the connection behind real lives within this both crazy and wonderful city by asking it’s many residents one question or theme a month. Our ultimate goal is to curate...

My Worst Nightmare: Stefano, Venezuela

February‘s theme for Voices of Berlin is My Worst Nightmare.   Stefano, Venezuela “The first thing I thought of when you said worst nightmare is being buried alive. I have a terrible fear of that. I remember I saw a movie, I can’t remember the name, it could have been a show actually, but the guy was buried inside a coffin and he was trying to get out. It just scarred me for life… especially when I have to be inside anything confined. I was in this thing called the Tactile Dome and it was a kind of maze in the dark, and you were in there for 25 minutes going through little tunnels and slides and touching everything around you and it was completely dark. I almost went – I almost had a little, tiny panic attack but I didn’t. I’m a little bit claustrophobic but anyway, I just took a...
