    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will do tasks with nice circus people and you could also enjoy from time to time to participate in the training of circus arts on a regular basis. An internship in Tiny House and circus wagon construction is included. We are situated in a beautiful area, close to Freiburg, France and Switzerland, but on the countryside. So connection to the public transport network is difficult. In order to be flexible, it is also necessary to like to move by bike. Our capital Freiburg (40km) is one of the most attractive cities in Germany.

    We are a preparatory circus school. So our daily business is circus training. Our training space is a circus tent, so there is always need for general maintenance. Our big DIY project at the moment is the renovation of a circus wagon. In November and December we are going to mount another bigger circus tent. Many hands are helpful.

    We have started rehearsing our next circus show. For this time we are looking for someone to accompany us on our circus tour through Germany in June and July. There we need help with transport and with the assembly and disassembly of our technical equipment. In this busy time there are enough free days per week, but the hours have to be very flexible. We are traveling and can't guarantee a 5 hour day on the road like Workaway does. If you are interested for this time, we will be very happy to host you.
