Calling all Berlin-based performing artists! We’re holding an information night and artist mixer for our annual festival! Come by on Tuesday, January 9 beginning at 7pm to meet potential collaborators, see our space and find out everything you need to know to apply to have your work included in the festival! Over the past five years, numerous Expo productions have been created as a result of artists meeting at the festival’s Info Abend and deciding to make new work together.

The Expat Expo | Immigrant Invasion: A Showcase of Wahlberliner is an annual festival conceived and curated by Daniel Brunet that debuted in 2013. We put our Miete where our 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 one or two professional performances per evening on our stage (in every genre imaginable) and on Sunday, April 22, we invite you to ExpLoRE, the format for newcomers, featuring 10 shorter performances and work-in-progress taking place throughout our entire facility, from our stage to our dressing rooms to our breathtaking courtyard.

The 2018 edition of the festival will be held from April 22 – 28, 2018.

This year, we’re looking to showcase one or two professional productions by Berlin-based artists each evening from Monday, April 23 through Saturday, April 28. Works should be between approximately 45 and 105 minutes in length.

We can also consider shorter works for performance throughout our facility or courtyard during the day on April 22, 2018.

Learn more about the festival and see the lineup from last year right here!

Applications for the 2018 Expat Expo are due by midnight on Monday, January 30, 2018 and the complete lineup will be announced on or about February 15, 2018.
