The Berlin-wide festival of the independent performing arts will present around 50 artistic productions at numerous venues and in public space from May 24 to 29, 2022. The participating artists and collectives deal with current social issues in a variety of artistic forms: they question exclusion and belonging, examine migration and colonialism, deal with (queer) identities, sustainability as well as poetics and classical materials. On display will be productions from a wide variety of genres ranging from performance, theater, dance, contemporary circus and children's theater to installations, video works and audio walks.

The 2022 festival is themed TOGETHER: How do we want to live, work, age and shape our future together?




From performance, dance and spoken theater to puppet theater, contemporary circus and children's/youth theater to walk-through sound installations and communal walks, the festival once again offers a diverse program this year.


Taking place at numerous Berlin stages and production venues, the festival is one of the most important and largest festivals of the independent performing arts in the German-speaking world.
Events in public spaces invite visitors to meet and explore the city. Digital and hybrid formats complement the program.

Daily PAF Radio offers online events and talks, introductions, post-talks as festival accompaniment for English-speaking audiences starting at 10:00 am.
