PAF Team & Contact

The Performing Arts Festival team brings together young and experienced artists, festival designers, organizers, editors, public relations staff....  - Many team members are also active in the independent performing arts scene. Together we lead and create the festival from the independent performing arts community. In the course of planning, we are supported each year by enthusiastic and creative colleagues who are involved in the implementation and follow-up of the festival.

You will meet us personally during the festival - we are looking forward to it!
