Expat Expo | Immigrant Invasion: A Showcase of Wahlberliner is an annual festival conceived and curated by Daniel Brunet that debuted in 2013.
English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center puts its Miete where its mouth is with this festival featuring our most important resource – the community of international immigrant artists and the English-language Freie Szene.
To kick things off on Sunday, April 2, we invite you to spend an afternoon with us at ExpLoRE, the format for newcomers, shorter performances and work-in-progress taking place throughout our entire facility, from our stage to our dressing rooms to our breathtaking courtyard. In between the performances, you can enjoy fantastic food, luxurious libations and magnificent music by international, Berlin-based musicians.
Over the six evenings from April 3 through April 8, the Expo features a curated selection of two performances per evening on our stage.
