Press Reviews 2018

“Growing and Growing”

“This PAF, taking place now for the third time, provides an overview as a successor to the legendary 100° festival of the far-flung activities of the independent performing arts community”. “A simple glance at the performance locations and the schedule of programming shows exactly why the independent arts community alleges that it makes up 95 percent of the artists in Berlin.”
(Patrick Wildermann, Tagesspiegel, 07.06.2018)

“When Berlin’s independent performing arts community presents itself en masse, the mixture is as colorful as usual: performance, dance, music, children’s and youth theater as well as puppet and object theater are all part of the programming. The performance venues are taking out their diamonds to present them again during the Performing Arts Festival […]”.
(Ute Büsing, rbb Inforadio)






“A joyous free-for-all of the independent performing arts community"

... because, after all, “the lovely thing about this tremendous little five-day festival with its more than 150 productions at over 60 performance venues is that every visitor sees something different on their theater tour.”
(Berliner Zeitung, 08.06.2018)

“The Performing Arts Festival, a combination of an alternative Theatertreffen and Gallery Weekend, presents the state of things for an entire week.”

There’s a lot, it’s diverse and you can let yourself be carried away. [...] Most of all, the festival is appealing as a format for simply yourself completely on the way to places you know to those you want to get to know.
