Performing Arts Festival Berlin 2021


The Performing Arts Festival Berlin is taking place for the sixth time in 2021. After the programming was shifted to online space last year, digital projects are being focused on again this year at HAU. HAU will present three very successful works from this season on the digital stage HAU4.

Jasmin ihraç “líu”
Ricardo de Paula “ORI CLEANSE”
Houseclub präsentiert: Pink Valley “Radical Present”
Introducing: The paranormal φeer group “Befriending Ghosts”

The central festival series “Introducing…” will present exciting artistic newcomers to Berlin once again this year. Out of nearly 100 submissions, Ballhaus Ost, HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Sophiensæle and TD Berlin have selected four productions. Together with the PAF, the four venues invites the audience to get into the car with Working Class Daughters to reflect upon questions of class, gender and migration, to set off on a scavenger hunt in cyberspace with the paranormal φeer group  and meet some ghosts, to choose your own family with the cmd+c Company within the framework of a gazebo road movie and to watch a film by the group Eleganz aus Reflex that looks at difference decades in the former East Germany.
