Mission Statement

Katapult is a studio for contemporary performing art located in Berlin, Germany. Run by artists for artists – we offer residencies, workshops, performances and cultural events as well as for photo and video shoots.

Katapult exists to further the development of visual performing arts in Berlin and beyond. Our doors are open to anyone with the drive to learn and create, whether amateur or professional.

We believe that artists need training and continuous professional development at all levels, from beginner to expert.
We organise workshops and masterclasses across a variety of disciplines with artists at the top of their respective fields. We offer daily, weekly and monthly training possibilities in a tidy and spacious working environment.

We believe that artists can create independently.
Grants and funding don’t always work out, and we want to help artists work without them – we keep our prices as low as possible, so that artists can self-fund their creations and develop their skills and portfolios without having to rely on the system to provide for them.

We believe that performing artists need to present their work in order to grow.
We host regular performance evenings, specialising in new creations, works-in-progress, improvisation and experimentation, and we guarantee a warm and friendly audience, capable of giving constructive feedback if desired.
