Workshop, Clown Parade,Open Stage, Cabaret and Speech

We are a team that believes that the more we are involved/present in the world, the better.

That's why we decided to start organizing this Clown Festival in Berlin even without financial support.

The idea is to be a festival for those who are clowns and want to show their art, in the theater and on the street. And who is interested in getting to know this art better

and make our clown society stronger.

A festival made by Clowns for clowns and those interested in this art and laughter.

We will have clown workshops, Cabaret, Parade, OpenStage, Speech and lots of fun, for adults and children.

Location: TheaterSpielRaum e.V. -Mariannenplatz 2B, 10997 Berlin-Kreuzberg


And if you want to support this cause with a donation, you are welcome!

A festival to learn, experience and laugh.

Daniel Megnet: Seit über 35 Jahren trete ich als lustiger Mann und später als Clown auf. In meinen ersten Jahren waren die Auftritte sehr von Komik, Akrobatik und Artistik geprägt. Später kamen Comedy, Tanz und alles andere, was auf der Bühne Spaß macht, hinzu. Neben vielen Workshops war ich auch 1 Jahr auf der Dell'Arte - int. School of physical theater - in Nord Kalifornien. Ich bin ein großer Freund von Duo und Trio spiel und genieße es, mit anderen gemeinsam zu spielen.

"For me, the clown is a virus that entered me and never came out. He helps me remember to laugh in difficult moments, helps me look at life lighter. And when I'm on stage it fills my heart, especially when the audience laughs, gets emotional, leaving me alive."

"To be a clowness is to open a gateway to a better, more balanced world, where humour leads the path. To be a clowness, to be the subject of humour and to be able to put oneself in the position of vulnerability in a world where vulnerability is not welcome is a healthy act of rebellion."

Ein Clownslehrersagte: Clown is you being free of inhibition. Das mag ich sehr - vor allem, wenn es mir gelingt ;-)

"Being a clown is an utopian philosophy of life through which the world is always seen from the side of innocence and curiosity. The clown opens up a world where everything is new and interesting and all people are good."
