Circus in town or town in circus? Magical time of the Festival will fill the streets of the Old Town with joy and wonderful atmosphere. For three days forgotten and unavailable places will open their gates to the public and the common ones will grow a new meaning. The unique atmosphere of the Festival will be created by true masters and artists who travel around the world making spectators smile, admire and awe. Sky these days will be cut by the highlines hanging in the Market Square and the Castle, circus tents will add color to the city and a warm glow of fire shows will turn the Amphitheater into red.

For those few days of August smile and joy will rule the city! Welcome to Oleśnica – 10th-12th of August 2018- a lot will happen!

Artists 2018

Elkote
"He
is
not
capable"

The eccentric, amusing, and fearless street performer who can surprise the audience like no one else. His shows are mostly built of improvised comedy sequences, not to mention acrobatic skills, love for slacklining on given heights, and manipulating circus props. Is Elkote already a provocateur or maybe still a clown? Maybe the planned show will bring some satisfying answers. It is definitely going to be funny... The artists won’t reveal more detail even to the organisers.

Soralino
"Inbox"

The artists create a small angular world entirely made of cardboard boxes. The mysterious creators are a bit absurd in their raincoats hiding joggling attributes. They act out for the spectators circus tricks whirling around the cardboard props - joggling and balancing, building and destroying. The show is accompanied by the accordion music released from a random box, applause and peals of laughter. Inbox is a show of very subtle and dancing course with a huge dose of joggling skills and acrobatic tricks.

Murmuyo
"Fisura"

The artist returns to the street stage of a city to present his next show. This time he plans to build a theatrical circus; however, he will need a whole bunch of acting personalities. Who will play the main role of the performance and who will have to settle for assisting in the most important improvisations? Murmuyo has an eye for talent and he will definitely find appropriate actors among you to his show. Prepare yourself for eccentric tricks, provocations, and never-ending peals of laughter.

MEET ALL ARTISTS

Slackline

There will be highlines suspended at the Oleśnica Castle’s courtyard and also at the Market Square between the windows of the City Hall and the surrounding townhouses. On them on a height of several meters above the ground highliners will be walking about. Once again this year we will stretch our SPECTACULAR, the LONGEST city highline in Poland – 117 meters – going from the tower of the Town Hall to the tower of the Basilica.

There also will be a slackline town at our guests disposal located on the green area at by the Castle where professional highliners will advise and thoroughly instruct every beginner.

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 (10:00 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 dj Endless.
