Open Xpressions at Cafeteatret started in 2010 and soon became one of the most dynamic and exciting open stages in Oslo, where you can see artistic expressions outside of the mainstream. Every third wednesday, Cafeteatret presents performers they believe in, across different disciplines and genres. After the showcase concert, it’s an open mic. Here, young artists doing music, stand-up, dance, poetry or acting get the opportunity to show their skills on a professional stage, and experienced artists have an opportunity to experiment and present new projects. Open Xpressions has stayed popular for many years now, thanks to its unpredictability, the welcoming atmosphere and a curious audience who loves surprises. We are happy to invite both artists and onlookers of all kinds to the annual Oslo World edition of Open Xpressions. And who knows, perhaps you get to see some of the artists from this years festival programme. It has happened before.
