TOGETHER we celebrated the seventh edition of PAF and a great reunion from May 24 to 29, 2022. Many nooks and crannies of the city were transformed into lively venues and numerous houses opened their doors. Ballhaus Ost, HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Sophiensæle and TD Berlin presented four exceptional newcomer:ins, filling each performance with enthusiastic audiences.
On May 24th we celebrated a big reunion and the start of an exciting festival week! After many months without dancing, drinking & being together, over 700 guests came to the big "PAF Opening" in the hip club garden of ://about blank. The opening of the long-awaited festival week started with a legendary concert by rapper EBOW, powerful words by Tanasgol Sabbagh and hits, hits, hits by DJ* Akikazu M.
For the PAF Closing we came TOGETHER one last time!
Also for the crowning finale of the festival on May 29, we were pleased to welcome about 400 festival guests at a befitting PAF Closing, who experienced and celebrated with us seven short performances and a breathtakingly beautiful concert by the solo artist L I N in the club and cozy champagne garden of the Panke.
From Wednesday to Saturday, the wandering festival center will be a guest of a different location within Berlin’s independent performing arts community each day: at Oyoun (Neukölln), at Theater unterm Dach (Prenzlauer Berg), at Circus Schatzinsel (Kreuzberg) and at Ballhaus Prinzenallee (Wedding). Oriented to the thematic points of focus and productions of these diverse production locations, the schedule of programming in the festival center illuminates a different aspect of the theme TOGETHER each day.
TOGETHER we experienced the seventh edition of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival from May 24 to 29, 2022.
With an eye toward this year’s schedule of programming, the question of what TOGETHER can look like in our world today recurs again and again. How do we want to live TOGETHER and shape our future, how do we want to work TOGETHER, find a TOGETHER with our environment and how to age TOGETHER? How can we develop TOGETHER so that a wide variety of lifestyles find space?
