About the Group
Träumer, Tänzer & Artisten e.V
Dreamers, dancers and artists – the name of Garbsen’s non-profit association says it all. About 80 young vaudevillians combine dancing, theatre and music with modern artistry. Especially the passion for the impressive world of circus is uniting the children and teenagers.
Since 2003, the young artists practice different disciplines in their leisure time such as tightrope walking, riding unicycles, acrobatics and balancing on globes. The performances seem to be easy and weightless but in fact it is hard work. The rising artists exercise in the sports hall of the IGS Garbsen once a week and they often go to the limits of their capacity. The feats eventually not only depend on endurance and body control but also on courage. The children in the beginners’ group learn the basic skills regarding circus and vaudeville arts in order to develop them further with their own creativity. These circus acts will be presented to a selected audience.
The children and teenagers in the advanced group develop a vaudeville show together with their coaches in order to present it to a public audience afterwards. A maximal freedom of decision is Granted
The topic school and association is one pillar of our work: for this reason, we cooperated with the school’s circus Bumm Balloni from the IGS Garbsen in 2011. The name of this cooperation is “association and school”. From 7th grade on, pupils can learn circus and vaudeville arts as well as enhance their existing skills.
Since February 2011, there is a training group for children and teenagers every Monday. An experienced group of female coaches accompanies the children and teenagers in order to develop the show’s program. Due to the variety of our requisites, there will be something for everyone who is interested in doing circus and vaudeville arts.
Our program in 2015 was a result of the combination of several single acts. The motto of the gala show of dreamers, dancers and artists was “Globetrotters reloaded – weird birds are everywhere”. The first performance was in the auditorium of the grammar school 1 in Garbsen. The speciality of this show was the support of 15 young Indians and consequently the transnational collaboration. It was the first stay in Europe for the exchange group from Delhi. Alongside the usual training there was an additional intensive training for the upcoming show. The hard work and effort was finally crowned with an enchanted audience and a thunderous applause.
The contact to India was a climax regarding our previous stays abroad. Due to different projects, we have already been in France, Spain, Finland and Poland. These international experiences are very important for the juvenile participants as they show that the medium “circus” enables a non-verbal communication. The teenagers are still in touch with their international friends.
Since the last journey, our teenagers are looking forward to a new project abroad. Nepal is a great opportunity to build up new contacts and bring our circus performance around the world.
