Zirkus ON

The Chamäleon is a cooperating partner of the funding program Zirkus ON by the Bundesverband Zeitgenössischer Zirkus e.V. (BUZZ).

Every year, Zirkus ON supports three jury-selected creations from Germany – from their first presentation to their final performance.

Together with its cooperating partners, Zirkus ON arranges mentoring, residencies, workshops, production support and presentations. The primary goals of Zirkus ON are to increase the quality of contemporary circus productions and to establish a tangible connection to professional structures in Germany at an early stage. The Zirkus ON funding program sustainably increases the chances. perspectives and horizons of contemporary circus in Germany.

More information on the selected projects for 2021/22 is available here.
