More About Us

The legal entity LAFT Berlin – Landesverband freie darstellende Künste Berlin e.V. (State Association for the Independent Performing Arts)– represents the interests and needs of the professional independent performing arts community of Berlin in dealing with politicians and the public.

Since 2013, the Berlin Performing Arts Program has worked to serve all independent dance and theater makers in Berlin and works to professionalize, strengthen the infrastructure and improve the visibility of the independent performing arts community.

Berlin Diagonale is a presentation platform for Berlin's independent performing arts community. Since 2013, it has offered visiting industry professionals guided tours throughout the community during major festivals in Berlin.

Since 2016, the Berlin Performing Arts Festival has presented the diversity of Berlin’s independent performing arts community at numerous theaters and performance venues throughout the entire city on an annual basis.

Since 2017, the Space Coordination Team for the Independent Performing Arts Community has worked to confront the scarcity of working spaces in Berlin. In doing so, it works closely with the interdisciplinary Spaces Task Force of the Coalition of the Independent Arts, Gesellschaft für Stadtentwicklung GSE (Company for Urban Development) and the Berlin Senate's Department for Culture and Europe.
