Performing Arts Festival Berlin

PAF from May 25 to 30, 2021

As an annual festival of Berlin’s independent performing arts community, the Berlin Performing Arts Festival demonstrates the diversity and creativity of the independent performing arts community at numerous performance venues throughout the city. But who can say today what situation will await the venues, artists and groups in May of 2021?

Despite many questions, the Berlin Performing Arts Festival is looking to the year 2021 full of optimism and determination:

May 25 to 30, 2021 - Save the Date!

Open Call - Out Now!

The open call for the artistic contributions from the community to the 2021 schedule of programming is out now. Next year as well, these contributions from the community will make up the heart of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival and constitute the majority of the schedule of programming. We are pleased to warmly invite all Berlin-based performance venues and event locations to participate in the creation of the schedule of programming with their productions and events created by Berlin-based artists and groups.

Submission deadline is January 23, 2021. 

We Are Looking for Reinforcements for our Team for the 2021 PAF!

In anticipation of the next edition, the festival team has been reshuffled and has started their work again. The festival team is in need of additional support for this and is looking forward to finding new, dedicated colleagues.
