The company the kickpäck, founded in the summer of 2016, stands for contemporary circus and highly physical theater, for theater that tells a lot using simple means - with minimal stage design and maximum bodywork. Christian Peter, clown, tightrope walker and the co-founder of Triko Cirkus Teatar Zagreb and Franziska Pack, acrobat, performer and theater teacher (Berlin), combine acrobatic and dance elements with guitar, trumpet, loop machine and well-dosed text to stories and situations in which the invisible moments become visible. Based in Berlin and Zagreb, they have presented their work not only in Germany and Croatia but also in Switzerland, Brazil and Israel. As a teaching team, they complement each other with their broad experience and offer a wide range of workshops.
Circus Schatzinsel is a venue for new circus in, with and for Berlin. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of Kreuzberg, there is a circus tent where professional artists from Berlin and the international circus community can rehearse in the mornings and, in the afternoon, children and young people learn in circus educational projects and create their own pieces. Circus Schatzinsel is an international place of exchange, inspiration and creative cooperation.
