To OPEN the city gates to street 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 street 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!

Contradictions

 

With the expression "poor theatre" Grotowski meant a theatre in which the fundamental concern was the actor's relationship with the public, not the staging, neither costumes, nor lighting or special effects. Important to Grotowski was what he could be with the actor’s body and voice with no supports and solely through the visceral experience with the audience. Grotowski joint this concept of “poor theatre” to the concept of "priesthood “or actor's sacredness. It was in this space, in the sacred relationship between the actor and the audience that the spectator was challenged to be transformed by theatre.
