PAF Outside - a successful reunion

So beautiful was our reunion at PAF Outside last Saturday in the garden of Circus Schatzinsel. We would like to thank all guests and participants of the evening and in particular tutti d*amore, hannsjana and Thermoboy FK for the artistic program. 


Six exciting festival days from May 19 to 24 have passed - and the PAF team would like to thank the audience and the participants alike for the overwhelming participation in this first @home edition of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival. 

All contributions and documentations of the events are still available on demand – and we cordially invite you to look them up.

We are looking forward to the Performing Arts Festival Berlin 2021!
