Delicious food and drinks both before and after our performances, as well as during our platforms and symposia, have always been an integral and welcoming part of the PACT experience. After bidding farewell to Wims Kochwerk at the beginning of the year, we are delighted to embark on a new culinary journey with Malte Colsman. Having grown up in gastronomy and with recent culinary stations spanning Spiekeroog and Italy, he is looking forward to introducing his own personal signature and flair to our kitchen.

Currently in best PACT tradition, he's already serving a fine assortment of light meals, snacks, and beverages from our newly restyled foyer bar in accompaniment to each of our performances. But that's just the beginning! Stay tuned for more delectable updates soon!
