In the heart of Berlin beats the pulse of New Circus. 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 with high class artistic to modern sound are created. When entering the historic ballroom at the Hackesche Hofe, everyday life becomes a faint memory as the hours of orchestrated magic take the lead.

We have visited the Chamäleon Theater before christmas every year for the past five years and have seen extremely impressive shows in the past. This is why we booked again. Underart was underwhelming - just no comparison to those performing in the past. Some impressive acrobatics but I have simlar level performances by street artists before.

We visited Chamaeleon and had a light meal and drinks before the show started. Quite reasonable priced, the show was interesting and featured some avaunt garde acrobats and tumblers. Most ended doing a handstand in a goldfish bowl!

We went to see LEO which was brilliant and funny in equal spades. Table service for drinks during your visit makes things easier. Great venue in a lovely area.

great location in trendy area of the city. situated in a complex which houses the theater, cinema and restaurant. we saw a show which was an 'ode to circus' as the performance was a bit of singing, dancing, juggling and acrobatics - no language issues to enjoy the performance. the show was about 90 minutes with intermission. depending on type...

We saw "Roots" (as in "roots of the circus") and it is hard to describe--kind of cirque de soleil but less shock and awe. Quirky with some good acrobatics, good acoustics and music (if you don't mind techno). I took my 11yo daughter, and she found it mildly entertaining but not as slick as other productions. However, I liked that... More

Hello, friends. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Cirk la Putyka's ROOTS performance at the charming Chamaeleon Theater, located just inside the main passageway to the Hackesche Höfe off of Rosenthaler Straße. ROOTS tells the stories of the individual performers through a surreal combination of acrobatics, dance, puppetry, cabaret, comedy, and drama. The performers are truly world-class, and the theatrics... More

It a cross between Cirque du Soleil and Cabaret. Circa La Putyka's Roots was enthralling and very enjoyable. All the artists are incredible. A must do thing.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
