This year the Berlin Circus Festival will take place in digital format. In order to provide a platform for contemporary circus in these difficult times, we would like to use alternative, digital formats to question the space we occupy as artists, curators and organisers.
With the online version of the Berlin Circus Festival we want to create a creative-artistic space that reacts to the critical needs of artists and offers the possibility to remain active and experimentally explore one's own creativity.
Within this framework, we are addressing artists with a nationwide open call to use the Berlin Circus Festival platform for their work.
We offer you a space, or rather a fully equipped circus tent in the middle of Berlin to develop your ideas and visions, to create and experiment. It is not about perfecting finished pieces, but to develop new ideas or redesign existing work. A performance at the end of time is not obligatory, but possible.
For 48 hours the stage and the festival area is yours.
Professional artists in the field of contemporary circus, currently based in Germany. The artists (maximum 5 persons) must belong to one household.
