We start with a show of the TEATR ŚWIAT(L)A and the FESTIVAL PARADE
START May 21th, 2022 at 4 p.m. / Bolek i Lolek Square in front of Sfera II Gallery.
The parade will be formed by the artists of the Banialuka Puppet Theater, organ-grinder, stilt walkers, a collective of actors and performers Street Art Masters Living Statues, jugglers from Teatr Świat(ł)a and the Walimy w Kocioł Percussion Group. This culmination of street energy and interdisciplinary creative synergy will pass along the streets of Bielska-Biała: from Bolka and Lolka Square through Galeria Sfera II - from the main entrance to the exit next to Empik - then via the footbridge over the Biała River and the promenade along Biała next to the Klimczok DH, then along 11 Listopada Street, then along Wojska Polskiego Square, then along the pedestrian crossing at S. Stojałowski street until we reach the Town Hall Square, where mayor Jarosław Klimaszewski will welcome the festival parade. We count not only on good weather, but above all on a great atmosphere, worthy of a theater festival in Podbeskidzie. The LIVING PICTURE VISUAL THEATER from Hungary will present itself in a short version on the Town Hall Square. The theater evening in Bielsko-Biała will be rich in attractions, and its accents will be shown in several places. Galeria Sfera will be dominated by STREET ART MASTERS LIVING STATUES, actively performing in the space of both buildings. At Bolek and Lolek Square there will be fire show performed by TEATR ŚWIAT(Ł)A. The official opening ceremony will be held at the Banialuka Puppet Theater with the play DRAGONS directed by Anna Nowicka. Late in the evening, Bolesław Chrobry Square will become a theater stage for EURYDYKA Teatr Biuro Podróży from Poznań (in 2018 Teatr Biuro Podróży received the Archangel Award - the most prestigious award given at the Edinburgh festival). We hope that you will touch the magic during a few days with puppetry during our festival.
