80 Acts Set for Street Art Festival

On Saturday 13 August and Sunday 14 August 2017 from 13:00 until 23:00 both days, the Streeta(rt)nimation will take place in the pedestrianized centre of Luxembourg city.

This year, the Streeta(rt)nimation street art festival will once again invade the pedestrian area of the capital of Luxembourg. The festival is free to the public and known for its ability to entertain its audiences. Twenty international and Luxembourg troupes will be present across Luxembourg city centre with no less than eighty street performances. The fixed shows will be located at Place d’Armes, Place Guillaume II, the Grand Rue (Puits Rouges), Place Clairefontaine, Place du Théâtre, Rue de Capucins and Rue du Marché-aux-Herbes. The other shows are mobile and will travel around the city and allow for very spontaneous contact with the public.

The genres represented reflect all the different ranges of both silent and physical theater. The musicians, stilt walkers, acrobats, jugglers, dancers, comedians and poets will transform the city into a world of colour and humour.

The highlights of the 2016 edition include:

– Universal Druckluft Orchester: A particular set of mechanical musical devices like no other.

– Foolpool – “Die Herde der Maschinenwesen”: An ambulatory show in which mechanical animals will invade the urban space.

– The Yelling Kitchenprince, an actor and musician. His costume is composed of kitchen utensils, and he will be making pancakes on the spot. The show combines circus arts, silent theater and music.

The programme also includes two shows that are very out of the ordinary, during the evening:

On Saturday, August 13 2016 at 21:00, the company Dynamogène will be moving across the pedestrian area with their traveling show “La grande roue révolutionnaire”. The show will include among others a human hamster, an indomitable driver, a percussionist from hell, a caged man, writings in chalk and a samba whispered into your ears.

On Sunday, August 14 2016, the company Pan.Optikum will close the festival at 21:00 in Place Guillaume II with a show that mixes dance and acrobatics on stage with fire. The show depicts human history through a game of mysteries about life, death, the rich, the poor, guilt and the end of the world.

The detailed programme will be distributed in the city centre, in cafés and shops and from the Luxembourg City Tourist Office (LCTO).
