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.

Do you want to support the Varietekh in any way?
We are always in search of people who want to help cooking, installing the stage, etc.
If you want to help us in any way, send an email to varietekh(AT)riseup.net!
The Varietekh is a DIY project, that means no one involved will get payed! Still, there's a lot of work to do! Even if you're performing at the stage, we expect willingness to help out if there is some stuff to do!
If you have experience with light or sound equipment and want to help at VARIETEKH, we will be very happy if you would send us an email to varietekh(AT)riseup.net.
