The 22nd International Street Art Festival in Warsaw will be held June 27-29 and July 4-6 this year, featuring comedies, mime performances, shows by traveling theaters and workshops. Audiences will be treated to a colorful extravaganza of shows in the streets, squares and parks of the capital.

Held for the first time in 1993, the Street Art Festival has evolved to become a popular international event drawing hundreds of performers from Poland and abroad, and ever more viewers. While focusing on theater, dance and circus, the festival also showcases a variety of other performance arts.

As in previous years, the festival will be held mainly in Warsaw’s New Town Square and Agrykola Park. This year’s performers are from Poland, Belgium, Ukraine and the Czech Republic and include guests from previous festivals, among them Belgium’s Cirq’ulation Locale company. The Squadra SUA theater from the Czech Republic is coming to Warsaw for the first time.

Polish theater companies at the Street Art Festival will include newcomers alongside regulars. Among the latter will be the Te-O-Ka Theater Group from Wrocław; the Formy Theater, who come with a new production of The Master and Margarita; and the Snów (Dream) Theater from Gdańsk.

Also present will be several companies from Poznań, including festival first-timers such as Circus Ferus, Porywacze Ciał (Body Snatchers), Fuzja (Fusion) and Biuro Podróży (Travel Agency). Poznań is also the home of festival regulars Strefa Ciszy (Quiet Zone), an indie theater specializing in street performances.

Theater companies from Warsaw will include Makata and Akt. The latter specializes in mime.

The rural traveling theater company Klinika Lalek (Puppet Clinic) from Lower Silesia will stage a show entitled Violence-Free Circus.

Apart from theatrical performances, the festival will include workshops and an avant-garde fashion show entitled Cocoons by Ernest Zawada, which will feature unique clothes made by students of the Katowice School of Technology.
