Doors open for CoachBachmann’s first Pop Up Venue – The Hidden Handstand Theatre

  • Vienna’s first pop up gym dedicated to hand balancing, flexibility & bodyweight strength
  • Doors open February 29th for Grand Opening & close end of May
  • Training led by performer Sascha Bachmann (Cirque du Soleil, 7 Fingers, Palazzo)

Vienna, Austria – 
CoachBachmann’s first pop up venue is about to open its doors.  The Hidden Handstand Theatre – is a beautiful collision of theatre and handstand gym settled in Vienna’s bohemian 7th district. 

Train like a performer, no matter your level.

Stepping into an everyday apartment building one would not expect to be transported into a unique world of glamour and charm.

During the day various classes covering hand balance, flexibility, straps & conditioning are on the menu.

The guest can train with and alongside performers who have toured the worlds biggest stages with companies such as Cirque du Soleil, 7 Fingers & Palazzo. 

Handstands, Strength and.. Entertainment

As evening descends, the theatre comes to life and one is invited to stay, hang out, have a drink, a chat and be part of a world not accessible otherwise.

By offering special events ranging from performances, live music and exhibitions the training experience will be expended and merge into a mix of lifestyle & entertainment. 

It’s not just a training session one takes, but a chance to experience a different lifestyle for three months before doors close again and the pop up gym vanishes into another city.

About Sascha Bachmann

Sascha Bachmann was born in Germany into a family of great gymnasts. By the time he was five he’d developed a passion and talent for gymnastics that would shape his entire life. He left home at 15 (inspired by the success of his grandfather – one of the most noted gymnasts of his time) and moved to Montreal to study at the National Circus School under the supervision of renowned Hand Balancing & Aerial Straps teacher Yury Bozyan.

Fast forward to today. Sascha has performed all over the globe, from the bright lights of Broadway to prestigious stages in Vegas, Tokyo, Paris, and beyond, with companies including Palazzo, Wintergarten, Cirque De Demain, Les Sept Doigts De La Main and Cirque Du Soleil.
