This is the first ever «function» at Dampfzentrale Bern. It is a small voguing session organised by the local ballroom scene. The «function» acts as both a practice run for larger balls and as a means for beginners to pose on a runway and to gain initial experience. Anyone who fancies it can compete against other participants in various categories. The walks will be marked by three judges. First and foremost, however, the event gives the scene a chance to celebrate itself and to strengthen a feeling of unity. Beginners are more than welcome to join in!

Co-host: Sun Niederer and Ivy Monteiro With Sirenessa, Adonis B. Poderosa, Tokyo Phoenix and others

The topic of the first function at Dampfzentrale is « Dear Darkness », so explore and expose your dark sides! We offer small workshops and explain each category before getting started. Be inspired by the categories and experiment with the right look to get you in the right mood. It is all about grace, beauty and the best stunts, as well as mutual recognition, respect and empowerment.


The categories are:

Light at the end of the Runway - Runway OTA

Especially in dark times it`s important to remember that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Therefore, bring it to the run way in a sombre outfit with a mandatory flash light as your accessory.


During difficult times demons have the habit to possess even the strongest among us.

Turn your inner demon inside out and serve us your moves with demonic precision and strength showing us that you possess the runway.

Best in Black - Vogue Fem OTA

Witches with their magical powers have the ability to curse or bless us in those dark times.

Bring it in a magical black outfit and cast a spell on us with your fierce and bewitched performance serving us your best fem moves.
