Micha Stella is a queer artist, mother and filmmaker, who moved from Paris to Berlin, in 2008, which they consider to be their homeland. In their work they explore gender, sexuality, identity issues, love and relationships, with an ironic, erotic, feminist, queer point of view.
Micha worked in films and Theatre as performer and as filmmaker directed “Paris la Nuit” in 2009, “Vivre Berlin” in 2013 and “Berlin-Sarajevo” in 2014, together with the artist Natasha Davis.
Parallel to her artistic work, she focuses on different body practices and nutrition. She has a foundation as yoga teacher and Hypnotherapy.
Since the encounter with the choreographer Felix Ruckert, in 2013, they lead workshop and performance on Gender and Conscious kink and collaborate with him in various artistic projects: they created together “The New Civilization Training“ a 10 days retreat that combine Fasting with body Practices, Personal Growth, Dance, Music, and Conscious kink, that take place since 2016, once or twice a year; in 2018 they collaborate at the “Living Room Tour“ ; they co-curated the program for the Xplore festival Roma from 2017 until today and xplore Barcelona and Copenhagen on 2018, 2019 & 2020.

They also enjoy to take pictures and support with the website.

Micha believes that Art and Sex can change the world and that Radical Empathy, Inclusiveness and Collective Creative Processes are the most inspiring and healing path to follow.
Imagine if you could perceive your body as a tool of freedom, expression, resilience and celebration. A space you cherish, nourish, love and accept completely!
Imagine if you could be sure to be accepted and respected from all other bodies you encounter as much as you are able to respect and accept them.
What if we find the strength to move away from abusive power dynamics, sexual prevarications and trauma, to built together spaces for collective sexual empowerment and freedom?
In this workshop I will share creative tools, playful techniques, some witch craft, radical empathy, critical thinking and non-binary perspectives to inspire a movement towards our best potential. The workshop is open to every gender, orientation, origin, experience and age (+ 18).
