The Busker Tour — a travelling street festival of performing arts and New Circus will visit Wrocław on 25–26 August 2023.

Buskers from Japan, Italy, Bulgaria, Malaysia, Argentina and other countries will be presenting artistic and entertainment programs for audiences of all ages at all frontages of the Market Square.

Under the artistic direction of Małgorzata Węglarz, the festival aims to showcase the richness of street art, providing a platform for improvisation and experimentation. Buskers have the freedom to create their own unique shows, drawing inspiration from theatre, dance, acrobatics, juggling, and various other disciplines.

The program includes more than a dozen different performances and concerts, each
presented several times. A total of about 70 events will be held in the Market Square in

Attendees can expect a delightful array of puppet theatre, partner acrobatics, magic
tricks, circus shows, object manipulation, clowning, and live music concerts. The mission of the Busker Tour festival is to promote musicians who perform their original songs.

The invited buskers showcase diverse art forms and utilize different props, while also bringing their individual experiences and cultural backgrounds. Most of the invited artists will be performing in Poland for the first time.

Who is a busker?

A busker is a performer who possesses the remarkable ability to transform any public space into a captivating stage, engaging passers-by as their audience. Their purpose is to provide entertainment, evoke emotions, and showcase their talents, ideas, skills, and unique personalities. While mastering their bodies and props with precision and tackling technically challenging acts are crucial to maintain the audience’s interest, it is equally important for buskers to exhibit charisma, a distinctive presentation style, and the ability to connect with the audience.

Buskers are also known for their adaptability, adjusting their performances to new surroundings. Often, they encounter the performance space for the first time during the festival, without prior rehearsals, unsure of the audience size or their reactions.

While they may have a script as a reference point, buskers embrace improvisation, draw inspiration from their surroundings, and actively involve the audience, ensuring that each performance becomes a distinct and unforgettable experience.
