What Will Have Been

A hauntingly beautiful display of interlocking bodies and intricate movements by three virtuosic Circa performers and a violinist on stage. Together they challenge our perception of what is possible within the human body and draw you deep into a world of physical daring.

Circa’s Peepshow

What do we see? What does it mean to be watched? How does being observed change the way we behave? Circa’s performers combine elements of circus, cabaret and burlesque in a beautifully bizarre hall of mirrors. Fascinating, wonderful and unsettling all at once

PLAY

WIR WOLLEN NIE NIE NIE

As part of our guest performance series, PLAY, we present a young Berlin company that is in the process of developing its very own, innovative stage language. Acrobatics, puppetry, dance and physical theater intertwine to form an aesthetically ambitious composition: experimental, surprising, moving. WIR WOLLEN NIE NIE NIE began in 2019 as part of a short residency in the Chamäleon studio basement and can now be seen on the big stage.

Tangram

Love is at once heaven and hell. Complex, sexy, and irreverently imaginative, Tangram redraws the boundaries of dance, contemporary circus, and physical theatre. Created and performed by renowned dancer Cristiana Casadio and world class juggler Stefan Sing, Tangram engagingly describes the human struggle of attraction and repulsion.

Un Poyo Rojo

In an empty dressing room, two men play with movement, an analogue radio and tiny shorts. That’s all the two performers need for their wonderfully bizarre, energetic physical narrative situated somewhere between acrobatics and dance, wrestling, and slapstick.

Zebra

Zebra is a show of masterful juggling by New York juggler Wes Peden, known for his complex, energetic and playful style. Performed with a lot of humor and great precision, Zebra is a quirky, hour-long solo performance where hundreds of throws and catches are used to create new, surprising shapes.

Knot

In Knot, Nikki and JD tell the tale of an impossible choice, finely crafting a portrait of love and the struggles of commitment.
