? THE BLUE MONKEY IS HERE – AND IT WANTS TO PLAY! ?
As the 11th kin (energetic quality) of the maya calendar, Chuen or Ba’atz, the Blue Monkey stands for the lightness and playfulness of the child that is not yet conditioned by society. Open and innocent, it just follows its impulses.
A Monkey day is a good day for dance, music, play and laughter. For a “Conscious Carnival”, a space in which we can drop our societal masks and flow together.
Everything is possible. You can be whoever you want to be. Dress up. Dress down. Masquerade. Come naked. Wear a gorilla mask. Be normal. Go bananas. Whatever feels right to you.
If you play an instrument, bring it! Guitar, bass, jambe, jaw harp… Let’s create something together. Drop any expectations. Remember, the monkey just wants to play! Whatever you are – beginner or pro musician, listener or dancer, just follow your flow. Let’s see what the monkey has in mind for us…

✩ MONKEY FAQ ✩
What should I bring?
If you want to use the sauna, bring your own towel(s), a bathrobe and some flip flops so you can walk around outside without getting cold feet. There is a wardrobe, so if you want to have them keep your things you can do that.
What should I wear?
Whatever you feel comfortable and sexy in! If you like to dance like a crazy monkey, make sure that you can move in your outfit! Lycra might be better than jeans – but its all up to you.
Wear your favourite socks, we are going to dance without shoes on our magic dancing carpet…
Does the sauna cost extra?
No, the sauna is included in the entrance fee. We expect it to be quite full though. First come, first serve…
And remember: No towel, no sauna. Unless you find a friend who shares theirs.
Will there be anything to eat and drink?
Yes, Pankeclub provides yummy homemade vegetarian (sometimes vegan) buckwheat bowls with different toppings for 3-7€.
There will be organic raw cacao from Bali, tea, water and some organic lemonades at reasonable prices.
