Dear Spectators,

Welcome to the 26th International Street Art Festival, yet another encounter with open-air theatre, the only chance in Warsaw to get to know this phenomenon in such a mass form.

Two weekends of meetings with Polish and European artists await you. We will visit different places in Warsaw with our spectacles. We will be in Rynek Nowego Miasta, Park Agrykola, Plac Defilad, Park Szczęśliwicki and a square near Słodowiec Metro Station.

We will get acquainted with various achievements of street art and will learn about its new trends. We will see spectacles representing different genres of performing arts, and admire the outstanding technique of the performers.

The best Polish street theatre companies are among our guests. Some of them prefer classical approach, while others use modern forms and content.

This year we will see Teatr 8 Dnia from Poznań with the most recent production – The Chidren of (R)evolution? directed by Jecek Chmaj. Teatr KTO will present the spectacle The Fragrance of Time. Opus 2 directed by Jerzy Zoń. Warsaw will be represented by two theatre groups. Teatr AKT will perform twice – they will show us Kalos Kaghatos directed by Marek Kowalski, and will lead us in The Travellers street parade. Teatr Pantomimy Mimo will present the most recent production At the Silent Movies directed by Bartłomiej Ostapczuk. Klinika Lalek wandering theatre will show us The Circus without Animals directed by Wiktor Wiktorczyk.

One of the foreign companies that have accepted our invitation is Bash Street Theatre from England, who have come with their spectacle Bellevue Hotel directed by Bec Appleby. From the Netherlands Le Cirque du Platzak will come with the performance of Kermiz directed by Adrian Schvarzstein. From Ukraine the Lvov Academic Theatre Voskresinnia will bring The Seagull directed by Jaroslav Fedoryshyn.

We hope that all the performances you will see will be an unforgettable artistic experience.

Yours sincerely,
Dariusz Jarosiński

P.S. I dedicate the Festival to my city.

The Street Art Festival is co-funded by a three-year grant covering the years 2017-2020 by the capital city of Warsaw and by a three-year grant 2018-2020 by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
