About us

We are CABUWAZI, the chaotic, colourful travelling circus

CABUWAZI – a magical place and a small world of its own, where you can forget your everyday life and be yourself. It´s a place full of movement and variety. A place for making friends, discovering circus together and developing your own creative ideas. A place for learning new things, performing in the ring in front of an audience, and of course: a place for having fun!
You can find us in six locations in Berlin: CABUWAZI Kreuzberg, CABUWAZI Tempelhof, CABUWAZI Treptow, CABUWAZI Altglienicke, CABUWAZI Lichtenberg and CABUWAZI Marzahn. We offer afternoon training, school and holiday project weeks as well as great shows at all our locations.

An overview

We believe that circus connects, teaches tolerance and dissolves prejudices from an early age.

CABUWAZI is a space for circus, dance, theatre, music and language. In the afternoon courses, school project weeks and holiday workshops we promote individual forms of expression, social skills and creative abilities for children and young people between the ages of 4 and 19. In a joint artistic and social process, the CABUWAZI artists regularly create performances in the CABUWAZI tents and for outdoor venues. Our circusses shape the cultural life of the neighbourhoods they are based in – through shows, guest performances and many other events.

CABUWAZI stands for a lively, cosmopolitan Berlin and is committed to supporting a dedicated, tolerant youth community. Therefore CABUWAZI works actively in the prevention of violence and addiction and sees itself as a place for social integration, cultural education and the promotion of individual health.

CABUWAZI has six locations in five districts of Berlin. All locations offer various circus programs like afternoon training sessions for children and young people, holiday workshops as well as shows and events. In addition, weekly school and daycare projects are held in our tents and we regularly cooperate with refugee and emergency shelters throughout Berlin. Particularly, CABUWAZI Beyond Borders is involved in comprehensive projects, working with refugee children and young people with a mobile team. The Kita-Mobil complements our mobile offerings.


To ensure that this kind of circus has a future, we are conducting training in circus pedagogy at the CABUWAZI Circus Academy Berlin. Further training for young people as well as for teachers and educators is also part of the academy’s program.

Besides workshops, training courses and our commitment to social circus, the circus tents are also rented out as event locations and are available for celebrations of all kinds.

Diversity and integration

People are different - therefore we believe that it is important to recognise and acknowledge this diversity and to respond to the different needs that come with it.

We see the meeting of many different people – whether in terms of, sexual orientation, gender identity, social status, physical, mental and spiritual ability, ethnicity, body, age, origin, migration background, religion or worldview – as enrichment. It trains children and young people in dealing with diversity, breaks down prejudices and prevents racism and exclusion from arising in the first place. Through inclusive cooperation, we want to facilitate a warm and welcoming arrival not only in our training groups but also in Berlin and in society.
