Win tickets to see Nurse With Wound’s April concert in Berlin

NWW’s first Berlin gig in ten years kicks off a new series of church concerts across the city

Curator and producer Manuela Benetton has announced a new series of events happening at various Berlin churches through the year. Kicking off the series will be Nurse With Wound on 28 April, which, aside from Steven Stapleton's sleep gig back in 2011, falls ten years after the last time NWW played in the city. On this occasion Stapleton will be supported by Colin Potter, Andrew Liles and James Hill.

The following show on 31 May sees the German debut of Merzbow, Balász Pándi and Keiji Haino’s trio, who “promise a bizarre, humorous and disorienting live show” of a kind showcased by their recently released album Untroublesome Defencelessness (Rare Noise Records). The church series continues on 19 September with a collaboration between Pan Daijing, Valerio Tricoli and Werner Dafeldecker, plus a performance by Beatriz Ferreyra. The 2017 series follows last year's concerts featuring Japanese improv collective Marginal Consort at St Elisabeth- Kirche, and Terry Riley with his son Gyan at Zionskirche.

To mark these 2017 shows, we're giving away two sets of two tickets for Nurse With Wound's performance on 28 April. Simply answer the following question:
