ZEIT FÜR ZIRKUS is the Germany-wide format of the international circus festival LA NUIT DU CIRQUE.

Founded in 2019 by the French network Territoires de Cirque, the festival La Nuit du Cirque takes place every year also in Germany. We are joining an international event that will feature contemporary circus in a variety of venues over a weekend in mid-November. In total, more than 220 performances will take place in about 50 countries. In 2022, La Nuit de Cirque will take place from November 11-13.

Zirkus fürs Ohr

In the accompanying audio program Zirkus fürs Ohr, exciting audio contributions about contemporary circus are published on this homepage. From children's voices on the genre and questions to artists, to contributions on historical topics and current issues of contemporary circus, to conversations with well-known actors of the scene and impressions from behind the scenes: Zirkus fürs Ohr takes everyone into the world of contemporary circus in Germany and throughout Europe, to the events of Zirkus fürs Ohr in the various cities, and into history. 2021 featured contributions from Daan Mackel, Dorothea Marcus, Elisabeth Luft and Isabelle Stier, with Serafin Dinges as editorial director. The contributions are available here for listening until the next issue.

This is what awaits you at our three-day Circus

"Contemporary circus is an art form in which circus disciplines are integrated into an overall dramaturgical and aesthetic concept. Acrobatics, object manipulation, balance, aerial artistry and much more are among the means of expression used by circus artists." Quelle: Bundesverband Zeitgenössischer Zirkus e.V.

Contemporary Circus

Contemporary circus is performing arts. Contemporary circus is interdisciplinary and combines e.g. contemporary dance and artistry. You can experience the performances and the program of the "Zeit für Zirkus" festival live in the participating theaters, venues, circus education centers and event locations throughout Germany.
