The Cave

We make space in our rehearsal basement – lovingly called The Cave by artists – available to independent collectives and individual artists all year round for free residencies, subject to availability and individual agreement.

Details to the rehearsal basement:

  • Size approx. 6 x 9m
  • Rigging Bar with hanging point (height approx. 4.30m)
  • 1 Floor Point
  • Basic Sound Equipment
  • Provision of further technical equipment and technical support upon agreement and availability

We ask for your understanding that we cannot make the space available on an hourly or daily basis. The minimum period is one week. Possible costs depend on the duration and the structural set-up of the project – in principle, we would like to appeal to solidarity within the circus scene and ask funded projects, for example, for small contributions to the room costs, which will allow us to continue to provide free use to those who have gone empty-handed.

Please note:
Some renovations are currently taking place in the rehearsal basement, so we are currently unable to accept new inquiries. We will make an announcement here as soon as inquiries are possible again.
