International Festival of Street Art BuskerBusPosted on: July 08, 2019
BuskerBus is a festival dedicated to promoting busking and street art. Over 20 acts join the tour every year and perform in various cities in Poland.
The 23rd International Festival of Street Art BuskerBus will take place in the following cities:
The theme of this year’s edition of BuskerBus is strength and precision. Festival features spectacular circus shows that require difficult technical skills, e.g. aerial acrobatics, partner acrobatics, acrobatics in a Cyr wheel and juggling tricks. You will also have a chance to see dance theatres and clownery for the youngest audience. Artists from all over the world will present their shows that refer to the tradition of street theatre and use the elements of different disciplines of the new circus, juggling and dance.
BuskerBus is committed to presenting a unique and inspiring programme suitable for all ages. Festival features talented artists who represent a wide variety of art disciplines: musicians, clowns, jugglers, magicians, stilt walkers, circus artists, dancers, fire jugglers to name a few. There are usually 3-6 shows presented at the same time at different locations. BuskerBus brings art and joy to the streets in small and big towns where it can be easily accessible by everyone. There are no tickets and everyone is invited to experience the magical world. Performers from all over the world entertain not only people who came to see them but also those who pass by; a girl drinking coffee in the nearest cafe, a woman living across the street from the pitch who is furtively looking through the window, and everyone who would like to participate in the show.
Our aim is to create an inspiring cultural atmosphere and in addition to the scheduled shows support the artists in collaborating with each other. We encourage all acts to cooperate and to constantly improve their skills. BuskerBus Festival was founded in 1997 by Romuald Popłonyk and it was the first interdisciplinary busking festival in Poland.
