In the final installment of KCRW Berlin Presents Berlin Lacht!, we speak with five out of the six members (Danny, Anne, Sebastian, Ben, and Vanessa) of Die Flugträumer, known for eye-catching acts combining fire, dance, acrobatics, and juggling.

Anne is the most recent member of the troupe. She previously worked as an art historian but found at a certain point, she was missing the “physicality” of art in the midst of the “theoretical.” So she began training in the circus arts…and the rest of the story? Well, you can see it for yourself at Alexanderplatz on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
