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.

ROOTS circus stories

For the first time in the history of the Chamäleon Theater, it is our great pleasure to welcome Czech company Cirk La Putyka to Berlin.

For the first time in the history of the Chamäleon Theater, it is our great pleasure to welcome Czech company Cirk La Putyka to Berlin. These visionaries of New Circus are one of Europe’s most important artists’ collectives and their work exquisitely combines various genres and styles in order to present their unique and very moving imagery.

At the CHAMÄLEON they will tell a story deeply rooted in their own family and their lifes as artists. Where are your roots? And how strong are they? When did your story begin?

„Each of us came from a different corner of the planet. We have different experiences and a different history, but we are all connected through circus. Through virtuosity, adrenaline, poetry, and laughter, through tears, passion, excitement and euphoria.“ Rostislav Novák, Artistic Director

At this very moment in Prague, our roots start to grow together. And will reach the Chamäleon. In Febuary 2016.
