Zirkus ON has a new homepage: https://www.zirkus-on.de/
Zirkus ON is an initiative program established in 2018 by BUZZ to promote contemporary circus productions in Germany. At the end of 2021, Zirkus ON founded its own association with the support of BUZZ in order to meet the constant organizational and content-related expansion of the program.
Zirkus ON e.V. is the creation alliance for contemporary circus in Germany. Through knowledge transfer, mentoring, residencies, presentations, production support, and early connection to professional structures, Zirkus ON unites emerging circus artists, organizers, training and performance venues nationwide to promote quality, experimentation, audience acquisition, touring, aesthetic discourse, and recognition of contemporary circus.
The creation alliance currently includes Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen, Circus Momolo/Composé Festival Jena, Festival Perspectives Saarbrücken, CircusDanceFestival Cologne, Atoll Festival/Tollhaus Karlsruhe, Bundesverband Zeitgenössischer Zirkus BUZZ, as well as the cooperation partners Zirkusfestival Lurupina Hamburg and Chamäleon Berlin.
