PAF Show & Tell 2020

PAF Show & Tell is a new format that will take place for the first time in 2020 and which serves as the successor to the previous Berlin Diagonale – Show Camp format. 

Over the course of the PAF Show & Tell event, completed work, planned work or work that is currently being produced can be presented over the course of the open networking format and / or shown in brief excerpts in a live presentation. Alongside the opportunity for all interested parties to network in an open atmosphere and present themselves and their work to the attendees using work materials such as, for example, videos, stage designs, trailers or props, a limited number of artists, artist groups and collectives will have the opportunity to offer a live presentation.
The live presentations must be able to be realized within an existing stage situation without additional technical requirements. Depending upon the number of applications, the Berlin Performing Arts Festival reserves the right to convene a jury and make a selection.


Artists, artist groups and collectives who work professionally and whose work is based in Berlin that would like to present themselves and their work to their Berlin colleagues, audiences and visiting industry professionals during the festival can apply to participate in PAF Show & Tell.

Applications can only be made using the online form. An application is only valid if the form is completed in full and submitted online. The submission deadline for participating in the 2020 Berlin Performing Arts Festival was December 1, 2019.
