A Showcase of Wahlberliner

The 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 artists and the English-language Freie Szene.

Over six evenings, the Expo features a curated selection of two performances per evening on our stage (in every genre imaginable) and on Sunday, April 2, we invite you to 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.

The 2017 edition of the festival will be held from April 2 – April 8, 2017.

This year, we’re looking to showcase two professional productions by Berlin-based artists each evening from Monday, April 3 through Saturday, April 8. Works should be between approximately 45 and 65 minutes in length.

We can also consider shorter works for performance throughout our facility or courtyard during the day on April 2, 2017.
