CIRCA | Humans 2.0

12 nov / 20:00 | 13 nov / 19:00 + 22:00 | 14 nov / 18:00
Chamäleon Theater

A symphony of circus, sound and light. Circa's most revolutionary circus work to date. Humans 2.0

Eleven bodies appear in a flash of light. For a brief moment they move in harmony before lapsing into an oblivious trance. Towers of people arise and collapse, bodies shoot through the air and are caught. The limits of what is physically possible are explored.

Young Ensemble | Vulnerable

12 nov /
Circus Schatzinsel

Between vulnerability and joie de vivre, the young ensemble Circus Schatzinsel performs a portrait of our times. Between exclusion and embrace, ignorance and affection, they question life in our time with elements of dance, autobiographical theatre and circus.

An intergenerational Circus-Dance-Theatre | 1482

13 nov / 19:00
Circus Schatzinsel

Is age just a number or much more than that? This dance-theatre-circus performance explores the stigma of getting old, being young and all its judgements, of becoming and changing. Personal stories from the lives of the individual actors are the starting points of this colourful journey.

Olivier Meyrou mit Matias Pilet / Leonardo Ferreira | La Fuite (Die Flucht)

14 nov / 16:00
Centre Francais Berlin, organized by Maison des Francophonies

A little circus gem for the whole family! He runs, his backpack strapped to his back. A vagabond, a fugitive of yesterday or today, struggling with the obstacles that life puts in his way. The film and theater director Olivier Meyrou has come up with this little circus format in which he reinvents the figure of the clown that once provided the glory days of silent cinema. Whether big or small, the audience laughs at what happens to this character.

The performance is part of the Festival des Francophonies in Berlin, organized by the Maison des Francophonies in CFB under the patronage of the French and Tunesian embassies.

14 nov / 18:15

A whole world is created, of details, emotions, time, colours, sounds, movements....

Bröllin

DieMaiers – WIP | inbetweensideout

13 nov / 18:00

Like voyeurs, the audience experiences the characters Mr. and Mrs. Maier in their isolated world. Small rolls are baked, scales are practiced, socks are darned. Between artistic highlights, the ups and downs as well as the seemingly wasted time before and after are explored with relish.

Collectif Rafale | Sanctuary Savage

14 nov / 19:00
Tollhaus

Based on the sensory experience of a blind person, Collectif Rafale has set itself the task of producing a circus show that can be experienced equally by non-sighted and sighted people, since sight is understood as only one of many senses. Sanctuary Savage is a live performance that creates an acoustic universe with the bodies of the artists and fills the space with smells, sounds, atmospheres and vibrations. Sanctuary Savage ist eine Liveperformance, die mit den Körpern der Artist*innen ein akustisches Universum erstehen lässt und den Raum mit Gerüchen, Klängen, Atmosphären und Vibrationen füllt.

Du bleibst was du bist- ein Mannequin.
Da gibt’s nichts zu lachen.“
Mascha Kaléko- Mannequin

Le Carreau

One girl, two boys and a mountain of flashy clothes. Add to that an overflowing imagination and an irresistible desire to have fun. At the crossroads of circus and dance, this hard core of tender-hearted acrobats talks about tenderness and friendship, vulnerability and benevolence. A funny and gentle moment to share with children and parents.

Cie SCoM | TRAIT(S)

14 nov / 11:30 + 17:00
Salle des fêtes, Forbach

Inspired by the paintings of Kandinsky, Miró and Delaunay, the company SCoM has devised a show for the very young. Here, the circus becomes graphic and painting becomes acrobatic. A circus artist spins with and in the Cyr-wheel. Soaked in paint, it is now more than a circus apparatus and functions as a paintbrush. A special visual and audio experience, a hymn to artistic creation and imagination.
