Circus Schatzinsel

May-Ayim-Ufer 4, 10997, Berlin

Touch is a fundamental sense of human beings. It helps us to orient ourselves in the world and to define our place in it. It creates trust, warmth and intimacy and does not only tell us something about our counterpart, but also about us and the world in which we live. Using dance and acrobatics, the performers ask themselves what ultimately happens when we no longer give each other the gift of touch. Kartografie der Nähe is a contemporary circus performance that tells a moving story about what it is that makes us human.

On May 31, there will be an introduction workshop for young people and physical follow-up for everybody to "Kartografie der Nähe".


A continuously accessible, step-free and level access (incl. curb ramp) from the street to the building and to the event area with a width of at least 150 cm is available. Barrier-free parking spaces and sanitary facilities are also available. There is space for wheelchairs or walkers in the performance hall/area and there is the possibility of special suitable seat reservation and/or to enter the hall ahead of time.

Rather little German is spoken at the performance, making it suitable for an English-speaking audience as well.
