Welcome at the spring edition of the Performing Acrobatix Programme, a two week intensive training for partner acrobatics in Berlin.

partner acrobatics – dynamic and group skills/lunge
* Hours are subject to change, this is just to get an idea how the day is structured.
Spread the Madness! We want to challenge you! Not only in the tricks, but also in taking the good amount of risk! Carry each other, jump on each other, throw each other and most important trust each other! We will play games to understand “Hand to Hand” from a different perspective – the Kaaos Kaamos perspective!
We gonna make you sweat cleaning up your basics. Tempos, floor positions, tempos, one arms and also tempos! And we will work on your specific tricks with each duo/trio/group. Therefore giving you tools how to continue working on these without a teacher or lunge.

week 1&2 | partner acrobatics
Perry always wanted to move. As a kid his grandmother asked him often if he could go to bed like a normal person, he refused while doing a roll into the bed… So it was obvious that he became a circus artist. Therefore he went to several circus schools (Die Etage Berlin, ACaPA Tilburg, Le Lido Toulouse). Nowadays he is performing with Kaaos Kaamos and teaching at Die Etage.
