Despite its phenomenal performances and generous encores, the city – although it's hard to believe – has gradually had enough of summer. With every day over 25 degrees that passes, the words "balcony", "beer garden" and "sunbathing" are losing their magic. And with standing ovations, the flâneurs among us will also be kicking their heels to hit the city's streets and witness the changing of the seasons up close.
Before the ennui of the cold season starts holding us in its grip, it's forced out by a welcome fog. There comes a point when we're even sick of the sight of our favourite summer dress and feel magically drawn to layering and between-seasons jackets. With childlike anticipation, we slip into Bikini Berlin, seek out our spot and get ready to behold the autumn spectacle.

Before entering the ring, we take a quick glance at the animal trainer. It's hard to tell whether his scowling face is down to our lateness or his own nervousness. But he's really pulled out all the stops with his outfit: like his four-legged dressage act, the drop in temperatures clearly suit him well.

The BIKINI BERLIN circus awaits with a unique attraction: a high platform where everyone can put their balance to the test. Out of sheer joy at long sleeves, boots and billowing skirts, we jump at the chance. Climbing the steps, we refuse to let the autumn breeze put us off. Applause is guaranteed.
