The Chamäleon Theater - Varieté Theater in Berlin

In the heart of the Hackesche Höfe:
The Chamäleon Theater

In the heart of Berlin beats the pulse of modern circus: welcome to the Chamäleon Theater! Here, people from all around the world, fulfill their promise of escaping and dissolving themselves into the full stage adventure. Because here, spectacular shows that intoxicate and enchant audiences are created. It is here, that you encounter an atmosphere, which playfully manages to build a bridge between the past, the present, and the future. And here, the doors open themselves to those that are looking for something new and exceptional. This is how we interpret varieté.

When entering the historic ballroom at the Hackesche Höfe, everyday life becomes a faint memory as the hours of orchestrated magic take the lead. Acrobatics, music, dance, comedy, and drama form a harmony in one of the most exquisite theaters of the city. Nonetheless, rough edges and bold performances are not to be missed. Internationally renowned artists with a high virtuosity and individuality, achieve a sensuous, nonverbal pleasure, which will make you speechless.

Continuously reinventing ourselves is the creative aspiration of our theater. After each season, the Chamäleon changes its colors in order to merge and blend with the new show that premieres on stage. Again completely different, again only here, again only now. Promised?! Promised!!!

The new show CROSSROADS is here!

Crossroads im Chamäleon Theater

We are very lucky to present the first Coproduction of C!RCA & CHAMAELEON Productions - CROSSROADS.

This spectacular show sees circus, song and dance clashing into one another, only to dissolve the boundaries between body and instrument, between movement and music. Allow yourself to be similarily transformed - in a night of grace, delusion and fun!

The singer Iza Mortag Freund and the acrobatic ensemble deliver their own live soundtrack, consisting of wooing punk cabaret, flickering electro sounds and sizzling death waltzes that summon life itself.

And this show proves that »Crossroads« merely mark the beginning of a journey.

SCOTCH & SODA

The charismatic acrobats and musicians of Australian circus company Company 2 will come to Berlin for the very first time and will present SCOTCH & SODA: a whiskey-soaked evening of circus and jazz!

Whoever enters our theater, enters a world that lets the flair of dusty, Prohibition-era backyard dives come alive. Here, circus, theatre and spectacular music are shaken and stirred to serve audiences a marvelous cocktail – smoky, exciting and a bit on the wild side. Come and meet a rowdy mob of misfits that know no tomorrow: five acrobats encounter the raucous jazz musicians of The Uncanny Carnival Band and climb to new heights on trapeze, tiptoe over champagne bottles and thrill their audiences with a good deal of intoxicating humour.

What you can expect

Worldclass acrobatics, gravity-defying physical feats and a lot of fun and laughter. SCOTCH & SODA is circus and jazz, served straight up. Ten exceptional artistic personalities present a performance with a kick to it to music invoking the meeting of early military brass bands and travelling gypsy’s in a rowdy whiskey joint. A thrilling, funny and completely entertaining night-out.

Grab a drink at our bar and join us at the biggest circus party Berlin has ever seen!

Swing in den Mai

As part of the series "CHAMÄLEON meets", SWELLINGTON'S SPLENDID SIX and SwingStep Berlin will set the CHAMÄLEON on fire with a dazzling Tanz in den Mai on 30.04. Not only does this include the atmosphere in the theatre hall, but it also

For this event, Lucian McGuiness, known as Band Leader of The Uncanny Carnival Band in SCOTCH & SODA slips into the role of George Swellington - his swing music alter ego.

Swellington’s Splendid Six is a made-to-measure swing dance orchestra inspired by the outstanding combos of Duke Ellington, Raymond Scott, John Kirby, and the Charleston Chasers, with a tinge of Django Reinhardt.
Since 2013, The Splendid Six have performed for Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Balboa parties in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam, and Sydney.

SwingStep teaches Lindy Hop, the coolest form of Swing dancing. The classes are not just about having "fun", but they offer the perfect mix of difficulty, learning, and enjoyment by making the dance as easy as it gets without sacrificing on the technique behind it. Each class has been designed to provide the best possible learning process and was tested by the SwingStep team all around Europe. SwingStep works continuously on finding better ways to help you learn to dance with great success and fun.
