A Showcase of Wahlberliner

ExpoImage300breitExpat Expo: A Showcase of Wahlberliner is an annual festival that debuted in 2013.

English Theatre Berlin puts its Miete where its mouth is with this festival featuring our most important resource – the community of international expatriate artists and the English-language Freie Szene.

The Expo has three components: evening performances, daytime workshops and family-friendly programming as well as the Expat Markt, a weekend-long marketplace cum performance installation featuring the goods and services of international visual artists, business owners and performers. Each evening features a curated selection of performances by multiple artists (in every genre imaginable) taking place throughout our entire facility, from our stage to our dressing rooms to our breathtaking courtyard.

The 2014 Expat Expo will be held from June 9 – 15, 2014.
Applications are due by May 5, 2014.

What are we looking for? That’s ultimately up to you – the Expat Expo is all about our international community of artists! Here are just a few guidelines:

Daytime program: 2 professional workshops or family-friendly performances daily from Monday through Friday, each approximately three hours in length.

Evening program: 3 professional performances daily from Monday through Friday, each between 30 and 60 minutes length. These can run the gamut from theater and performance to cabaret, comedy, burlesque, dance, music and everything in between. Shorter works can also be considered. Be sure to let us know where you would like to perform it.

Expat Markt: We’re looking for international artists to put their creativity on sale through actual objects sold at tables and booths as well as metaphorical performances. The Markt is also looking for buskers and performers for half-hour slots on the performance stage set up in the foyer. Jugglers, contact improvisers, musicians, clowns, you name it – we’re looking for it!
