Performing Arts Programm Berlin

Advising, Networking, Strengthening: A Program for the Independent Performing Arts Community

The Performing Arts Program is intended for all independent theater and dance makers in Berlin and is specifically oriented to the circumstances and needs of the members of the community. We have worked to structurally strengthen and professionalize the independent performing arts and increase their visibility since 2013. Our established formats will be supplemented with new ideas as of 2016.

The Performing Arts Program works in four areas:

Consultation and Qualification
Distribution and Marketing
Network, Knowledge Transfer and Cooperations
Audience Development and Communication

The Performing Arts Program was conceived by Janina Benduski and Stefan Sahlmann and is a program of LAFT Berlin.
