The Nobel Jester left us!

Dario Fo, one of the great actors of world popular theater, passed away at the age of 90 years.

The death of Dario Fo, on October 13th, 2016, is a great loss for the European Popular performing arts. Nobel Prize in Literature in 1997 "because, following the tradition of medieval jesters, he mocks the power, restoring dignity to the oppressed", within him the art of buffoon reached very high levels.

Dario Fo has stimulated the birth and spread of Italian Street Theatre movement. It has often championed the liberalization of urban spaces in Italian cities, and the political sentiment has always been a foundation of his shows.

OPEN STREET TUBE, European Performing Art Video Archive

The meeting place for live performances buyers and sellers !!

UPLOAD your productions and highlight them in OPEN STREET TUBE, to propose them on festivals across Europe.

TAKE PART in periodical International Showcase, in order to test ONLINE the interest of operators in your artistic proposals.

To OPEN the city gates to performing arts means to bring out the value of open air spaces assigned to social life, to enforce the cohesion inside communities, to improve the local tourist activity, to create new routes for exchange and integration between European countries.

The creation of a international debate, the comparisons between normative and laws, different urban patterns and policies for development and support of performing arts, will drive to a new consciousness and will produce new stimulus in administrators and art operators. This route could not be undertaken on a simple regional or local level. Our country, now, is Europe!
