Kabinet Mirage is a theater company based in Berlin that researches and performs art integration. Founded in 2017 by Cielo Faccio and Ibon Goitia, they’ve performed so far in several European street and art festivals and they’ve organized yearly the colorful music and theater event Feldkunst Festival in the historical Tempelhofer Feld. Also, during this time Kabinet Mirage performed in many cabarets, circus varietés, private events and solidary projects, becoming remarkable in the circus and theatre scene of the city. Furthermore, they’ve been co-directing an Erasmus+ funded international research program about social and art integration called Music for Chameleons, which involved in 2017, 2018 and 2019, a group of 50 young adults from all over Europe, refugees from Africa and people with disabilities.
The company finances its productions and events through their own work, supported by the network of artists and volunteers, and project-related public funding: Fonds Darstellende Künste, Neustart Kultur, Initiative Musik, KiA-Aufführungsprämien, Dezentrale Kulturarbeit Treptow-Köpenick, and in the pandemic period, the “Corona Soforthilfen”.
