Performing at Caravanseray Vienna

We offer you performance opportunities at the already famous Caravanseray Show on Friday at a Viennese theater, at the Caravanseray Party on Saturday in a restaurant and at the Caravanseray Afterparty outdoors on Sunday .

★General Performance Applications are accepted from 1.3.2019 till 1.5.2019★

If you are not able to participate in the whole festival, please plan your travels to allow for being here on at least two performance evenings. The chosen performers for all shows will be announced by 1.6.2019.

Please be aware that it is mandatory for every performer on our stages to book at least one workshop at the festival (two workshops for solo performers). Why? See ‚Support and Love‘. Support your application by supporting the festival.

We’ll ask you for a codeword in your application. (Will be published on this site.)

Support and Love

We organize this festival because we love the dance and the community around it. We don‘t receive any funding or government support and have to finance everything through the festival only. The festival only exists with your support. So how is it possible? Exactly, by booking workshops like crazy and inviting people to see the shows till everything is sold out! ;)

Teachers of Caravanseray Vienna

The teachers are chosen by Doro & Michaela based on personal experience of their teaching, performing, personality and presence in the Tribal community.

There is no teaching application for the Caravanseray Vienna.

So how can I become a teacher at the festival?

Your best chance is to participate at the festival and make the Viennese and the European audience starve for you as a teacher, and if Doro & Michaela like your art and also yourself personally, then boom – be sure we ask you to come!


The Bazaar is located at the workshop studio, and the space is limited. Vending is possible and encouraged during the whole festival, and the workshop location is well frequented.

If you‘re interested to vend at the next Caravanseray, please contact us till mid-November at nakari@nakari.info well in advance, to be included on the promotional materials. It’s also possible that we’ll still have space for you if you contact us later, just write us!
