Details to come soon.

a little review of 2022

We are still thinking back longingly and overjoyed to these wonderful days on the Tempelhofer Feld. The 8th Berlin Circus Festival and the first big summer edition after two years was a very special one. After two really challenging years, we looked forward to the festival full of anticipation and yet wondered what it would be like to come back after this time. We could not have imagined in our best dreams how wonderful it would be: To finally experience art and culture live again together with you, to see the tents filled, to give artists a stage, to see people laughing, marvelling or crying together and exchanging ideas about contemporary circus … It was simply great and more touching than ever before.In a time when the tension in society is so palpable and no one knows what challenges the future will bring, it is even more touching to feel how circus brings people together! As the Berlin Circus Festival, we are happy to contribute to this: 7,000 guests, 10 productions, a beautifully designed festival site and many unforgettable moments under the sun of Tempelhofer Feld have made these 10 days in August something unique for you, the audience, the artists and us!
