Additional performances Kaleidoscope Nights in the circus tent

Every evening different artists can present segments of their shows at two moderated ninety minutes-revue shows each in the circus tent. The popular Kaleidoscope Nights delight an audience of more than 300 people per performance. Artists participating at the Kaleidoscope Night present two (short) performances at two revue shows of ninety minutes on one evening. The two performances at the Kaleidoscope Night substitute one street performance.

In the afternoon artists can present segments of their performances at moderated sixty minutes- revue shows in an inner courtyard. This performance can be done in addition to the street performances.

In addition to planned performances, performances of one hour can be presented on Saturday from 10:00 - 14:00 at selected spots in the city centre.
