OPEN CALL: Berlin Circus Festival: Open Stage and Work-in-progress

The Berlin Circus Festival is looking for extraordinary acts and innovative creations to be presented during the Open Stage (27.08.2018) and the Work-in-progress (30.08.2018).

The Festival:
In August the doors of the Berlin Circus Festival, the first festival for contemporary circus in Berlin, will open for a fourth time. Berlin is a dynamic, lively, young and culturally rich city but we have almost no contemporary circus here. Come here and change that! During ten days we are inviting 9 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 center of the city.
Our big tent is a beautiful 26 meters large with a stage of 10x10m and 9m height. Rigging points, lights and sound will be provided and a public of around 450 people, including many programmators from Germany.
We will provide food, light and sound technician and a hat will pass around, which will go entirely to you. As well we will film your performance and you will get the video, soon after your performance.

About you:
Open Stage:
We are looking for superb acts up to 8min for the Open Stage. Please keep in mind that we are promoting contemporary circus.
