Call – Work in Progress Berlin Circus Festival 2019


Open Call for Artists based in German speaking countries.

The Berlin Circus Festival is looking for an innovative creation to be presented during the Work-in-progress of the 5th Berlin Circus Festival (29.08.2019).
The Festival:
In August the doors of the Berlin Circus Festival, the first festival for contemporary circus in Berlin, will open for a fifth time. Berlin is a dynamic, lively, young and culturally rich city with a growing contemporary circus scene.
During ten days we are inviting 13 circus companies to Berlin to play, enchant and fascinate the Berlin public in two wonderful big tops on the old airport of Berlin, right in the centre of the city.
Our big tent is a beautiful 25 meters large with a stage of 10x10m and 9m height. Rigging points, lights and sound will be provided and an open interested public of around 250 people will attend your performance
We will provide food and a light and sound technician. As well we will film your performance and you will get the video, soon after your performance.
About you:
The WIP night in 2019 will be entirely dedicated to artists based in German speaking countries – i.e. Switzerland, Austria and Germany – in order to help develop the local contemporary circus scene.
You are working on a new show or concept and want to present something to an open audience? We offer you the stage for up to 20min. Afterwards there will be a hosted feedback talk with the audience. Ask all your questions!
