Call for Applications for the 2019 Expo Festival. Be part of our annual showcase of Wahlberliner!

Where: English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center, Berlin, Germany

When: April 28 – May 4, 2019

Deadline for applications: November 30, 2018

Receive up to 3,000 EUR (pending funding application) for a world premiere or additional performances of an existing production and present your work in the 2019 Expo Festival from April 28 – May 4, 2019! This festival is intended for artists based in Berlin.

How to apply:

Since 2013, this annual festival has presented selected performances from the diverse yet often still undiscovered international independent performing arts community of Berlin with a working language of English. Over six evenings
featuring one or two evening-length performances, the festival presents a cross section of this community across all performing arts genres and beyond all language barriers. Within ExpLoRE, the newcomer’s platform, the Sunday
afternoon is open to smaller formats or work still under development — these will be performed on two separate stages.

The 2019 schedule of programming will be curated by festival founder Daniel Brunet, Producing Artistic Director of English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center, as well as choreographer Olivia Hyunsin Kim and theater director Shlomo Lieberman, from the applications received based on the criteria of artistic excellence, internationalism and creative diversity. The festival accepts proposals both for world premieres as well as restaging of existing productions and provides financial and dramaturgical support.

The extent of the funding is subject to applications that are currently being decided, but we hope to provide up to € 3,000 per production in the evening program and up to € 1,000 for projects within ExpLoRE.
