on three evenings The performance focus 'Contemporary Circus' features four different productions from the German-speaking area. All artists work at the interface of circensic performance and other art forms (dance, visual arts, literature, film) and thus offer the audience new perspectives on the artistic potential of contemporary circus. furthermore the lobby features thematically related installations.

The event is curated by KreativKultur in cooperation with WUK performing arts and forms the start of the trilateral cooperation project 'circus re: searched', which in 2019 and 2020 will accompany circus creation processes in Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
