In an empty dressing room, two men play with movement, an analog radio and tiny shorts.

Veranstaltungen in Berlin: Un Poyo Rojo

That's all the two performers need for their wonderfully whimsical, energetic physical narrative somewhere between acrobatics and dance, wrestling and slapstick. Un Poyo Rojo has been celebrated by audiences and critics worldwide for ten years and can now be seen in Berlin for the first time.

In the setting of a testosterone-soaked locker room, the athletic bodies of Luciano Rosso and Alfonso Barón move fluidly through various forms of movement art. With a twinkle in their eyes, the two actors stage stereotypical macho behavior that oscillates between competition and camaraderie and is repeatedly broken up by homoerotic moments. The protagonists thus cleverly succeed in deconstructing common notions of masculinity. Un Poyo Rojo is a masterful tour-de-force of acrobatics, dance, humor and sexuality and an invitation to laugh at ourselves and accept ourselves as we are.


PLAY is synonymous with the joy of play with which we have put together this program. It is a powerful and contemporary tribute to the circus and a series of guest performances that would have been unthinkable at the Chameleon before. Young, up-and-coming companies from Germany, cool insider tips and renowned prize winners from past festivals come together here. The planned pieces form a wonderful density of different circus styles, are all outstanding creations and a unique opportunity to travel the world of new circus without any stress.
