Here they are! The artists of the 38. TEDDY AWARD

It’s time to introduce our great acts for the award ceremony on 23 February. The Rope Duo Two on the Rope will take us up high and singer LUNA and actress Mina-Giselle Rüffer will take us into the depths of emotion. All performances reflect human existence uniquely, and we are delighted to welcome them as part of the 38th TEDDY AWARD.


LUNA’s lyrics make you feel like you’re secretly reading along in someone’s diary – except that it’s allowed. The artist takes us with her as she navigates her way through her 20s and the big and small questions of life. Her music is one thing above all: damn personal.

She has long since proven that she is more than just a TikTok hype: She has a club tour behind her, has been on the road as a support act for LEA, has received various awards and prizes (for example the 1LIVE crown as “Best Newcomer Act”, “Durchstarter*in des Jahres” at the New Music Award or the Musikautor*innenpreis).

Outside and within her music, LUNA has been committed to issues that are close to her heart since day one: mental health or the visibility of people belonging to the LGBTQIA+ community, which she does with sensitivity and extreme openness when it comes to revealing her own feelings to a wide audience.

The numbers and successes, but above all the strong bond with her fanbase, speak for themselves: LUNA is here to stay. She continues to let us peek into her emotional world and gives visibility to people who have felt unseen all their lives.

Mina-Giselle Rüffer

Mina-Giselle Rüffer made her debut at the age of ten in Neele Vollmar’s children’s film “Rico, Oscar and the Deep Shadows”, followed by numerous roles in series and films. For her outstanding portrayal of Nora in the fifth season of “Druck” she was honoured with the Grimme Award 
Currently she is playing the lead role in the young adult horror series “Unnoticed – Was wir fürchten”, which deals with the topic of sexual identity and the highly topical issue of bullying in schools and thus the victimisation of children and young people. Mina-Giselle lives in Berlin. 

Two on the Rope

Brace yourselves as they take you on an unforgettable journey of passion, love, and heartbreak, high up in the air!
Their awe-inspiring performance will tug at your heartstrings, as they portray the invisible bond between two people, weaving their hearts together in a mesmerizing display of trust and emotions. But what happens when this bond is suddenly torn apart? Can love endure without it, or is it lost forever in a sea of loneliness?
With breathtaking heights and gravity-defying acts, “Two on the Rope” will leave you spellbound, as they merge the moments of parting and new beginnings into a beautiful dance of emotions. It’s a moment of truth that will make your soul search for answers, and your heart yearn for the lost song.

Saleh Yazdani

In a wild club-kid style he rides on a wooden rocking horse into a cold world full of concrete buildings and concrete heads. With the power of fantasy and his artistic handstands on the wooden rocking horse he triumphs against the tristesse of everyday life.
