Artists 2017

The
Trick
Brothers

The performance “Riverside” (“Plovárna”) is a humorous sketch with a strong accent of a circus show. It is based on the motif of a Czech novel “Summer of Caprice” by Vančura. Juggling actors: beautiful woman and two men with retro moustache will carry the audience to the 1920s. Atmosphere of the old days will fill the stage, and artists will enchant the audience with subtle acting and circus tricks. The performance is a lazy vision of holiday in a pre-war style. But you certainly won’t be bored. The show is filled with juggling demonstrations – solo and together, elements of acrobatics, dance improvisations, gentle gestures and non-intrusive humour in the Czech style.

Izimagic
Duo

Sebastien and Rebecca are an artistic duo, putting on the show “Metamorphosis”, a performance based on illusion and stage magic. This is a unique show combining elements of improvisation, visual illusions, actors’ stage metamorphoses, engaging the audience. They offer everything that the real Magic Show should contain: from manipulating with small objects to spectacular illusions. As a magician with many years of experience, Sebastian presents all the elements of his show with the utmost precision and technical excellence, not forgetting the art of street improvisation and a comedy approach to life.

Compagnia
Circolabile
-
"O
Like…
Peanut"

A circus performer, juggler, man balancing on the edge... of a tourist chair. We invite you to two performances by this unconventional artist: a street show and a performance in the BIFK performing hall, where Menozzi will act in a duo with Christel Dicembre. “O Like... Peanut” is a one-man show with great comic charge. On the street stage, you will see a figure of a clown who dabbles in juggling straight from the construction site. Assembly rolls, insulation tapes, cardboard boxes go against the laws of gravity, becoming tools of circus tricks.

MEET ALL ARTISTS

Slackline

At City Market between the windows of City Hall and the surrounding townhouses and the courtyard of the Oleśnica Castle of the Dukes will hang highlines -on which at a height of several meters above the ground will wander courageous boys and girls. Again this year we will rig incredibly SPECTACULAR and the LONGEST city highline in Poland – 117-meters going from the tower of Town Hall to the tower of Basilica.

You can also find here a slackline town located on the green area at the Oleśnica castle of the Dukes. Professional highliners will provide any advice and thoroughly instruct every begginer.

Fire

Fireshow on OFCA is a combination of fire and pyrotechnics prepared especially for our eyes by real professionals. This year we will  invite you to the FIRESHOW performance at the amphitheatre and OPEN STAGE FIRESHOW in the courtyard of the Oleśnica Castle! Fireshow performance starts on Friday (9:45 p.m.) at the Amphitheatre, and we hope that it will attract real crowds. The next event of fire – Fire Open Stage – is planned as in previous years, on Saturday (10 p.m.) and will be held in the courtyard of the Castle in the accompaniment of music by Bassalog.
