Angels in the sky at Place Kléber, a musical car at Place Saint-Thomas or even a concert of Freddie Mercury look-alikes at Place du Château: the FARSe made its big comeback to the city center this weekend of August 15. Between heat waves and storms, around thirty street arts companies have dazzled Strasbourg residents.

After a 2021 edition disrupted by the health crisis, the Strasbourg Eurometropolis Street Arts Festival returned to its usual format this year. Dancers, circus performers, acrobats and comedians were able to animate 9 districts of the city for three days. This year’s theme: getting closer. A successful edition both in terms of attendance and in terms of artistic proposals.

poetic Fugue very cinematic Crash passing through the choreographed street “rave” of La Fabrique fastideuse, not one show was like another. Whether you are into acrobatics or prefer intimate theatre: there was something for everyone. And what about this magnificent finale… Place Kléber under a rain of feathers. The angels of the company Gratte Ciel will have left the inhabitants of Strasbourg speechless and stars in their eyes. Back in pictures on the highlights of the festival.
