International circus festival with focus on aerial arts - shows, workshops, network, jamming, talks...
The Aerial Arts Festival Berlin is an international festival that serves both the circus scene with a networking opportunity, as well as the Berlin public, who still rarely get the chance to see the art form of contemporary circus, with a focus on aerial arts.
Each year Verein zur Überwindung der Schwerkraft partners with different organisations and priorities to create an interface between education and professional practice, between gala artistry and contemporary circus, between national and international trends.

Inside the scene:
Workshops, seminars, master classes, open exchange and networking. It is a matrix of various scenes of the aerial circus world in Germany and internationally.
Contemporary circus shows and performances are presented in professional theatres to a Berlin audience, but can also stimulate contemporary theater discourse, thus advancing the perception of the circus within the performing arts.
