Ancillary Program

The ancillary program of the festival offers the opportunity to meet Berlin-based artists.


Thematic tours led by members of the independent performing arts community will visit the diverse landscape of Berlin’s performance venues, allowing the audience members to become acquainted with the cultural cartography of the city.

Berlin Diagonale

Visiting industry professionals from Germany and abroad are invited to attend the presentation platform of Berlin Diagonale on May 28 to gain an overview of Berlin’s independent productions, performance venues and working methods, participate in direct exchanges with local artists, initiate cooperations and to book touring productions. This creates lasting sustainability for this work “made in Berlin”.
