The ‘30.ulica – Farenheit 451′ International Street Theatre Festival starts today, Wednesday 5th July 2017, and runs until Sunday, 9th July.

30.Ulica kicks off with a parade on the Market Square, at 6pm tonight (5/7/17). The subsequent events take place, between now and Sunday, on the street’s and spaces of Kraków, as well as performances in Alwernia, Tarnów and Oświęcim.

The street theatre festival is one of our favourite festivals, and never disappoints, great for photographers, kids and anyone who simply likes to be entertained, by often spectacular and flamboyant performances.

For this 30th edition the theme is based on Ray Bradbury’s novel Farenheit 451, set in a future where books are banned. Many performances during the festival are intended to act as a warning against such an imagined state becoming a reality, threatening our civilisation.

The 30.Ulica festival features more than 80 events, involving 200 performers, with performances and accompanying events, including exhibitions, film screenings, workshops and interactive games, intended for both adult and younger audiences.
