What is VARIETEKH?

A stage for those who bring it to life!
The VarietEKH originated in 2013 and takes place two or three times per year at the Ernst-Kirchweger-Haus (EKH) in Vienna in front of over 400 people. The EKH is a free space that was fought for. It allows people to organize and be creative without authority or pressure.

Would you like to perform at our solidarity variety show?

We primary look for contemporary circus, but all kinds of performances are welcome. We try to vary our program. There should be Viennese as well as international artists. We try to find a balance between group- and solo-performances. Furthermore, we focus on an equal relation of genders and newbies and experienced performers.

Want to just come and enjoy the show? Be sure to check this page to know when the next one is up!

There is no entrance fee, only donations. These donations are being divided fifty-fifty, for open and self-organized circus-structures and for left-radical political projects.

Perform at VARIETEKH!

Hand

Every variety show is being performed twice, saturday and sunday.

The final run-through and rehearsal for technical matters, moderation etc. is scheduled for friday afernoon. So you should be available throughout the whole three days, if you want to perform.  

Your applications will be collected and five weeks before each event we put together a final program. Due to high application numbers we cannot guarantee a performance slot for each and every one, but we register all of the applicants and try to fit those delayed into the next show. We have certain criteria for choosing the respective performances, which is not always an easy task.  

We primary look for contemporary circus, but all kinds of performances are welcome. We try to vary our program. There should be Viennese as well as international artists. We try to find a balance between group- and solo-performances. Furthermore, we focus on an equal relation of genders and newbies and experienced performers.  

Performance time is limited to seven minutes for solos and ten minutes for group acts in order to have a wide scale of different artists on stage. For keeping the show short and sweet and in suspense it is of major importance for the performers to stick to the time frame. If your act is longer than that and can't be shortened at all, you may speak with us though - exceptions can be made if needed.  

If you have expenses for your performance or journey, you may ask for a financial grant of up to 40 € for a solo act, 80 € for a group act, but if you travel costs would be higher, exceptions are possible. For people without access to the labour market this grant is to be taken as an individual financial support. For international acts the amount for travel costs is of course higher.

Be sure to download the application form and send it to varietekh(AT)riseup.net, once you've filled it in.
