Tollwood Winter Festival

A feast for the senses

At Tollwood Winter Festival international theatre acts occur next to the scenery of the international “market of ideas” – a charming Christmas market – which consists of more than 200 stalls where people can buy international handcraft or taste organic food from all over the world. Over 80 percent of the shows, which range from theatre, music and performances to environmental activities or kids entertainment, are for free!

The winter festival traditionally comes to an end with the Tollwood New Year’s Eve events and the midnight waltz on the Theresienwiese.

Top-class acrobatics

and a 4-course organic menu created by star chef Holger Stromberg.

Like so many new circus companies, they come from Canada. In Québec, six artists came together in 2013 to further develop the Nouveau Cirque, which was already established worldwide at the time. In addition to top-class artistry and scenic appeal, as found in theatres, Machine de Cirque also convinces with elements of art and sound, dramatic storytelling and real role-playing.

The name of the group is also the name of their first show at the Tollwood Winter Festival. Like the newer show “La Galerie”, which is shown in the second half of the festival, it shows the development of this company.

In the meantime, Machine de Cirque has thrilled some 300,000 spectators at around 700 acclaimed performances worldwide.

The show can be accompanied by a menu created by the famous star chef Holger Stromberg.
