Ladies and Gentleman, Children of all ages…
From September 4th-13th, the circus is coming to town! Not excited yet? Yes, we know the feeling: those childhood days are long gone and we’re not that easy to please anymore. This circus, however, is quite different and rather special. It’s all about dance, theatre, acrobatics and artistic performances instead of lame clown acts and dressage. For ten days, the Berlin Circus Festival will feature a stunning programme with internationally renowned productions, spectacular shows and young artists from all over Europe. Acts include the extremely successful Slapstick Sonata, Plateau Partagé and Vixen from Scandinavia. On September 7th, the Open Stage will guarantee an evening full of surprises. On September 7th and 8th, four Cirk La Putyka artists invite daredevils to take part in a teeterboard-workshop. Work in progress is the theme on September 10th: various artists will share insights into their work and experiment with volunteers. All shows, weather permitting, will take place outdoors on the Schatzinsel at Köpenicker Straße. In case of rain, the good old circus tent will keep us dry. Doors open 1,5 h before each show begins. There’ll also be bars, food stalls and plenty of bizarre things to admire. We are excited and looking forward to this cirque nouveau! Yes, this is for grownup kids, too.
