Cacao Ceremonies

Over the Summer the Pirates had the good fortune to travel to different events, festivals and communities spreading the magic of circus.

We sang, we danced, we laughed, and we shared the light and the learnings we had received over the summer. Autumn is a time of transformation, of harvest, of growing from what we have learned in the summer sunshine and shedding those leaves that no longer serve us. As the days grow shorter and the nights grow colder, the autumn equinox invites us to look inward and reap what we have sown throughout the year, and coming together to share this ceremony provided everyone the space and support to meditate on what this change of seasons will bring…

Circus Space Pirates Collective ( – We are a group of passionate performers, educators and activists, who have all met through the berlin-based social circus actions.
