The Expo Festival: A Showcase of Wahlberliner*innen is an annual festival that debuted in 2013.

Over the last nine years, the Expo has been able to present more than one hundred performances of new work by international artists who have made Berlin their adopted home. In doing so, it holds a unique position in Berlin’s vast cultural landscape as both a local and international festival.

Berlin’s Freie Szene, the independent performing arts community, is remarkable for its diversity of background, artistic and aesthetic practice, working method and philosophy. One of the Expo’s most important goals is to ensure that this is reflected in the performances that make up the festival.

Between June 15 and 25, 2022, you can look forward to twelve different productions; six full-length productions and six work-in-progress showings.
