Trottinett Ballett

how to wow? e‑scooters, perhaps the most unpopular means of transportation since the segway disaster, are looking for their place in the ramp light. “trottinett ballet” has recognized its potential, scaled at lightning speed and is now investing in poetry and passion. finally e‑mobility and entertainment, finally unicorn capitalism that’s fun. anything is possible if you only firmly believe: venture is adventure.

foot. push. go! we have collected the machines off the road, nurtured, cared for and trained them. our start-up frees the machine from its everyday use – we drive in sync, in circles and in formation, the first and the last mile, cruising through pitches and customer reviews, gig-work, ipos and vandalism. and: we circle around our complicated love story with the sharing economy – where we share more and more, and yet do not get closer to each other.

the team around film and theater director piet baumgartner develops – at eye level with the machines – a visual poem with documentary roots, a kind of “starlight express” from the start-up world, a traffic choreography of strange beauty.
