Festival Outposts





The Performing Arts Festival is diverse and decentralized, which is why, alongside the festival center in aquarium, there are four additional outposts at various hotspots in the center on the border between other independent arts and neighborhood life in Berlin. They will provide information about the festival as well as tickets. In addition, each outpost is created, performed and filled with life by an artistic team or artist. This results in four different site-specific, participative or immersive art projects that receive the impulses of PAF and broadcast them out into the city.

Das Platzhaus (Prenzlauer Berg)

Artistic Host: Leisa Shelton/FRAGMENT31

Platzhaus is located both on the outskirts and right in the middle of Helmholtzplatz, a former public bathroom facility that has developed into a neighborly place within the neighborhood where people with low socio-economic potential can also experience social participation. This is a house whose contours were outlined in drawings from the last decade and whose architecture remains flexible in the sense of togetherness and discussion. 

During the festival, the artist Leisa Shelton and three additional “Scribes” will visit numerous events and invite the visitors to brief conversations between events to write down their impressions, observations and special experiences. 

Address: Helmholtzplatz, 10437 Berlin
Info Point: June 6 – 10, 12:00 - 6:00 pm
Tickets: June 6 –  9, 12:00 - 6:00 pm

Allmende (Tempelhofer Feld)

Artistic Host: Tobias Rausch

The community garden Allmende-Kontor on Tempelhofer Feld was founded over the course of pioneer projects on the former airfield through an initiative of 13 community garden activists, researchers and friends of urban gardening and urban agriculture. 

For the festival outpost in Allmende Kontor, writer and director Tobias Rausch examines plants as the performative self-willed life partner of humanity – be it as weed, medicinal herb or salad.

Address: Tempelhofer Feld, 12049 Berlin
Info Point: June 6 – 10, 12:00 - 6:00 pm
Tickets: June 6 –  9, 12:00 - 6:00 pm
