The eighth edition of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival is about to begin! From May 30 to June 4, you can experience a whole bunch of performances from the independent performing arts community in Berlin for an entire week. Come to the exciting kickoff event at Festsaal Kreuzberg and celebrate with us! After the first words of welcome from the team of the festival, the board of LAFT Berlin and political representatives, a live performance by Olympia Bukkakis awaits you. At 9 p.m. FINNA finally brings us out of hibernation and because we are already in the swing of things, we can continue dancing to AZLAY from 10 p.m. on. In the garden, you can chat with acquaintances old and new or just enjoy the comfortable atmosphere.

We are looking forward to a week full of discoveries, thrilling shows and performing arts!
