The ULICA Festival has been moved from its traditional dates in early July to the first week of September. 

When, over a year ago, I worked on the programme of the 33rd edition of the ULICA Festival (its leitmotif being “bizarre acts”), I did not expect that the beginning of the year 2020 would verify the sense of bizarreness of the events taking place around us. Reality has changed my initial plans.

The Festival has been moved from its traditional dates in early July to the first week of September. The context of the mentioned “bizarre acts” has changed as well, which made us introduce corrections to the programme, reflecting the need for a new look at ourselves, at the sense of the presence of art in our life and of its expression in public space. Crises make us rediscover ourselves. As Albert Camus wrote, the plague is about starting over. Keeping in mind that piercing silence of emptied squares and streets and that anxiety accompanying our encounters with another people, let us try to redefine the sense of theatre in open urban space. Our intention is that the 33rd ULICA Festival should provide the spectators with strong emotions, proving with all its might that that nothing will replace a live contact of actors with their audience and of one human being with another.

The Festival will reintroduce the public to the squares and streets of Krakow which recently have not been swarming with people as much as they used to before. It will present them in new, extraordinary and bizarre contexts.

Welcome to the “Bizarre Acts” of the 33rd ULICA Festival.
