A New Circus and Theater Experience

The pulse of the New Circus beats in the heart of Berlin at Chamäleon Theater. Over the years, Chamäleon Berlin has established itself as an exciting home for the New Circus and stands for contemporary, innovative circus theater beyond the mainstream.

An experience like no other

New perspectives on an exciting, vibrant art form are presented here, and circus productions are shown that test boundaries, flout conventions, and create unique, touching stage experiences in the process.

The historic Jungendstil Ballroom in Hackesche Höfe makes Chamäleon one of Berlin’s most beautiful theaters. Small tables and a convivial atmosphere allow you to arrive and linger in a relaxed manner, while the charming service team serves snacks and drinks at your seat. The Chamäleon is a warm, welcoming place where hospitality is paramount.

The Elephant in the Room from 22.02.2022 to 25.06.2022

Duration: 90 minutes plus intermission

With their totally original retro piece, Cirque Le Roux takes you into a monochrome world where circus arts, Hollywood film noir, and physical theater collide. Welcome to the luxurious estate of Miss Betty.

Caught between her distraught husband, a gleeful best man, two stumbling butlers, and a lecherous suitor, our hostess escapes from her wedding party to a secluded smoking lounge. Cigars, whiskey, slapstick, and impressive acrobatics intertwine to create a turbulent love intrigue. Hidden in the gloomy, decadent ambiance, behind quarrels and false pretenses, the unsaid – the proverbial elephant in the room in English – stands taking up more and more space…

With much wit and eccentricity, Cirque Le Roux skillfully combines storytelling with top-class acrobatics. In the process, the six artists explore the mysteries of love, friendship, and the obvious truths we prefer to ignore.
