We are back. It's time again to wander the Tempelhofer Field and to rediscover and savour circus.
The Berlin Circus Festival is the the festival for contemporary circus in the heart of Berlin. We invite you to discover the breathtaking mix of circus, dance and performance during eight high-class productions under our big top. 10 days of festival with young, international artists from all over Europe. Stunning acrobatics, juggling, theatre, dance and a unique festival site.
We feature renowned productions, spectacular shows, emerging artists and much more. We will introduce to you the so-called contemporary circus, which is already enchanting an incredible number of spectators abroad!
On the site, you are invited to discover art exhibitions, enjoy live music and savour delicacies from different food trucks with your drinks in the rays of the late Berlin summer sun. We play in every weather in our big top. All shows are easily understandable and there are few language barriers. Details in the program.
We have the big pleasure to have the Finnish Institute as partner on our side. This year we give a special focus on companies from Finland. Three Finnish productions and hidden specials on the festival site will bring you closer to our Northern friends.
Do you want to actively participate? We offer a variety of different workshops, where you can discover circus or develop your skills. In addition, we need a lot of volunteers to help build the festival or to accommodate artists. Click on "Join in" for more information.
