Hello

New year, new rules: in the coming weeks and months as well, we can continue to expect new regulations and changes due to the pandemic with which the independent performance and rehearsal venues as well as artists and collectives without a permanent performance venue will have to deal with. The Performing Safety team provides advice and support for everyone who is uncertain what regulations currently apply to them, what they must bear in mind during rehearsals, live events and in terms of occupational safety and preventing infection as well as where financial support can be found if events are cancelled.

New Paths – Let’s Go!

The Industry Get-Together Audio Archive 2021

Anyone who wants to play needs rules. How do we want to structure ourselves? What principles of order result in freedom? Which produce violence or exclusion? Again and again, we return to the issues of power relationships and structural changes.

This year, we turned our attention to adjustments that can be in terms of administration, art and form. For those who couldn't attend everything at once, want to listen to it again or can't get enough of all the content, you can find our audio archive here. There you can listen to almost all talks, impulses and statements – no matter when and where.

Performing Arts Programm Berlin

With the Performing Arts Program, LAFT Berlin has created an effective instrument for the infrastructural strengthening, professionalization and networking of Berlin‘s independent performing arts community.
No matter whether we are talking about a symposium or a cooperation event, one questions is always at the forefront of the work of the Berlin Performing Arts Program: what and how can we learn from each other and how can we then integrate it sustainably within our own work?
