Danilo Timm started Heart Chor with the intention of bringing passionate and talented people together to sing and perform. A thoroughly diverse, queer, loving collective has formed and over time become somewhat of a family.
Heart Chor sings and performs out of joy, curiousity and passion, radically spreading the message of LOVE. Body positivity, self-love and acceptance are values that complement this open approach. With its trade mark The Ode to Nipples. Heart Chor supports the Free the Nipple Movement. Mutter Unser - a feminist reinterpretation of the Lord's Prayer - is a devotion to the luscious and cheerful Holy Mother. In collaboration with DJane Alma Linda Heart Chor promotes sexual freedom through their common project Homoerotic Aerobic.
Heart Chor performs at music festivals such as Garbicz Festival, Fusion Festival and Bucht der Träumer as well as at many cultural events, for example at Feldkunst Festival, Festsaal Kreuzberg and Sophiensaele and at the city's legendary night venues such as Kater Blau, Sisyphos, Kit Kat Club and YAAM.
