Artist Talk following 'Please, Repeat After Me' / Expat Expo Festival

'Please, Repeat After Me' is a play about decision-making and labels. When does a stereotype stop being a stereotype? When does a refugee stop being a refugee? When does an actor stop being an actor? Meet the director Ziad Adwan and the performer after the show.

About the Venue

English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center

English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center is the German capital’s only producing and presenting organization in the Hauptstadt expressly dedicated to English, the 21st century lingua franca, as the working language. Our year-round programming comprises the Producing Series – Made in Berlin, the Presenting Series, as well as our Performing Series and Pedagogy Series. We are a proud member of Berlin’s freie Szene, the independent performing arts community, and are currently developing platforms to share our work within Germany and abroad. We consciously use theater and performance as living, discursive forms to bring artists and audiences into conversation with each other about our shared city and the greater world we live in.  

About the Festival

The Expo Festival

The Expo Festival: A Showcase of Wahlberliner is an annual festival 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 immigrant artists and the English-language Freie Szene.

To kick things off on Sunday, April 28, we invite you to spend an afternoon with us at 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. In between the performances, you can enjoy fantastic food, luxurious libations and magnificent music by international, Berlin-based musicians.

Over the six evenings from April 29 through May 4, the Expo features one performance per evening on our stage.
