Planet Lubunya 

İrem Aydın

Get ready to leave earthly affairs behind and start a new journey into space. The world is cancelled and we are offering you a safer space in space. If it sounds scary, no need to worry. You will be accompanied by experts facilitating your integration into the unknown system — a cryptic system that requires mysterious missions to unlock as we Traverse hitherto unexplored language and motion. Our target is the ultimate utopia called »Planet Lubunya«. Hurry up and take your seats in the spaceship. This is an emergency take off.  


»Planet Lubunya« was initiated by İrem Aydın (Berlin) and Efe Durmaz (İstanbul) in 2020 as a format for digital solidarity between queer people in Turkey and Germany. It now takes off as a theater production with (mainly) Berlin based artists and is heading towards interstellar collaborations with artists from a multitude of places.
