STRETCH FESTIVAL 2020
28 oct - 2 nov
STRETCH is a weekend festival for GBTQ+ men, that usually takes place in the heart of Berlin three times a year. For this online edition we are expanding to 5+ days. Having fostered an international community for years, we decided the pandemic wont stop us nurturing the connections we have built.
An online edition is an opportunity to make Stretch accessible in a different way - participants and facilitators can join in from around the globe.
We love diversity and would like to extend a special invitation to all queer gay bi trans and straight men* welcoming all bodies, skin colors, cultural backgrounds and gender identities within this larger und not-so-definable container of queer masculinities and their erotic attractions.
Expert teachers, practitioners, therapists, healers, renegades and artists invite you to this unique virtual gathering. Let's explore a wealth of offerings drawing from bodywork, mindfulness, art, movement, sexuality, psychology, spirituality, gender, identity, ritual, performance and social engagement.
Participants can choose from over 50 workshops, experiential explorations, presentations and talks in order to explore and inspire a more soulful and playful connection to one another and to life itself.
You’ll be able to connect with people spanning the globe in our virtual safe spaces to socialize, mingle or deepen exchanges.
Use this chance to discover and explore new ways of being, to nourish your body, mind, and spirit. We look forward to welcome curious and adventurous participants.
Sensual. Experimental. Spiritual.
In contrast to our usual program, we are offering online spaces to adjust to the current environment: 5 virtual rooms to explore new content. Each room will have a particular focus, but workshop content may overlap.
In addition, there’ll be a Concierge Room for guidance and questions and a Lounge Room to hang out or request a breakout space for smaller group interactions with others. Both will be open throughout the festival.
Room 2 is the Partner Room, in which two or more people at home can engage with each other in specially designed workshops.

Stretch.Online dramatically expands accessibility. It offers a global festival through local participation. Don't miss this extraordinary gathering of people from around the globe. Prompt registration ensures a space, as we are unfortunately limited by the technology to 100 people per room.
Stretch.Online ensures we, Village.Berlin, will still exist after the Corona crisis. Because we usually run events relying on physical contact, we may be among the last places allowed to reopen.
You can also support us by becoming a temporary Village.Berlin member for 12 months at €20 a month. This lets you access our extensive weekly program, including free events each month.
