The 25th International Festival of Street Art BuskerBus will take place in three cities in Poland:
24-25.08.2021 Zielona Góra
The BuskerBus festival has attracted international street artists since 1997. It’s a huge opportunity for interaction between city residents and the exotic culture of street art; only here will an older lady watch an Argentinian circus artist juggle fire on a 3-metre tall unicycle, a girl who stopped for coffee will find herself in the first row of a concert, and leaving your house with slippers on your feet you’ll have a chance to see spectacles straight from world’s most prestigious circus stages.
BuskerBus bridges the idea of contemporary circus – the one focused not on animals, but strength, skill and creativity of the performers – with the availability of busking. Here you’ll be more than just a passive spectator – you’ll become a live part of the show, with the artist reacting to all that happens around you. Every year, from the very many applications, artistic director Małgorzata Węglarz chooses both world stars and interesting „freshmen”. The programme is different each time, and the artist’s chance to come back to Poland is to create a new (and good!) show. Thanks to this, the festival is always very diverse, surprising, and at a very high level.
