Digital kick-off presentations of the new Zirkus ON projects from different cities.

The funding program Zirkus ON of the Bundesverband Zeitgenössischer Zirkus (BUZZ) presents the three new projects of the 3rd edition, selected by a jury, in their own digital presentations and live chats: “René” by Sinking Sideways from Münchberg, “I was told” by Kathrin Wagner from Berlin and “Runners” by Hippana Productions from Cologne.

Together with the cooperation partners, Zirkus ON offers mentoring, residencies, workshops, production support and presentations. In the stream, the cooperation partners provide insights into the various support elements of Zirkus ON. In addition to interviews with the current mentors by Chamäleon Productions Berlin and insights into the residency practice of the Tollhaus/ATOLL Festival Karlsruhe, the production management of the Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen talks about their premiere of Roman Skadra, who was supported in the second Zirkus ON edition. In addition, there is an interview of the first Zirkus ON project Knot on Hands with the festival Perspectives.
