"Spring" (excerpt)

From Deliverance

Danielle de Picciotto was born a nomad on the Fort Lewis army base in Tacoma, Washington. Thus her journey began, moving from one base to another for years. In 1987 she moved from New York to Berlin to initiate the Berlin Love Parade together with her then boyfriend Dr. Motte; create the Ocean Club with Gudrun Gut, one of her longest standing collaborators; get engaged to the late Roland Wolf of The Bad Seeds; become singer of the Berlin Band Space Cowboys; exhibit her art and films internationally; and from 2001 collaborate with Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten. They got married in 2006 and with him her travels continue. The artist couple gave up their home in Berlin 2010 and have been touring the world since.
