Put exchange on your agenda.
|production café [cancelled]
This is our platform for circus artists to meet, share, explore, teach each other, train together and more. It takes place every couple of weeks.
Bring your ideas spontaneously or contact us and sign up for the PRO newsletter on top of this page to hear about the next dates of circ-exchange.
Our door is open for your questions regarding the production of your projects: How to plan, how to write dossiers and how to finance?
We would like to share our experiences of many different productions with you! Maybe there's a possibility to start right away at Zirkusquartier with a research residency or by finding other artists? Join us with your ideas, your laptop or your budgets. Let's think together and have a coffee – it's for free.
If you're a local artist or just passing through Zurich, come and train at Zirkusquartier! It's the place to be. :)

The circus space at Zirkusquartier is available for your residency.
The space is available daily until 4pm during school periods. During school holidays (in Zurich), the space is available 24h - perfect for your last rehearsals and premiere.Be aware that during school periods you have to dismount/stash away any props/aparatus/big scenography every day after rehearsing.
For solo artists and compagnies up to five people we are able to offer (per trimester):
We always like to combine your residency with a workshop or a showing – but it's not a must. Travel costs and food at your expense. We can provide accomodation with a kitchen (7 chf per person a night).

This space is a theatre too. :)
At least once a month we host a show (circus/dance/theatre). If you're interested in playing for an open-minded Zurich crowd, send your material to Sebastian. We finalize the programmation about four months ahead (see dates above).
Share your knowledge!
If you would like to share your wisdom with the motivated Swiss crowd, come teach a workshop at Zirkusquartier! For entry deadlines see «residencies» above. Spontaneous sessions possible according to the space availability.
Zirkusquartier offers its theatre for up to 120 persons plus a nice outdoor space for your street show or chapiteau.
There's an indoor and outdoor bar which is run by Zirkusquartier during shows, festivals and special events.
