Contemporary circus has experienced a structural development in Germany in a very short time like hardly any other form of performing arts. Through its accessible and non-verbal way of dealing with socially relevant issues, it holds enormous potential for social discourse and promotes proximity to culture. Current funding practice is geared towards model projects and short project funding periods, but in the future, these must be supported by comprehensive, sustainable, and far-sighted structures. The symposium "Setting the Stage - Circus Funding of Tomorrow" provides the impetus for this. Keynote speeches by representatives from cultural policy, funding institutions and associations will stimulate discussion about perspectives and possibilities for the contemporary circus of tomorrow. Thematic group tables invite focused exchange between actors from the arts, politics, and administration.
