The senior creative teams of Festival of Fools (Belfast) and Open Street aisbl (Brussels) have completed the selection of proposals for the participation in the Mysteries & Drolls 2021 showcase, dedicated to artists & companies up to 3 components.

The initiative was a success beyond any expectations, registering almost 100 proposals coming from 20 EU countries and UK.

The complete list of applications is available at this address:

Unfortunately, some applications did not meet the participation requirements, because they came from countries outside those eligible (eg Switzerland and non-EU), or because they saw more than 4 members on stage.

The results will be published Saturday 6th February at 16:00 (Brussels time) on the Mysteries & Drolls website at the page:

For any further information, kindly contact the Open Street secretariat through the email address network(-at-)

Mysteries & Drolls EU Showcase 2021


Call out for applications to the second (online)

International Showcase of the Mysteries and Drolls project

brought to you by Festival of Fools, Belfast, UK.



In February 2021 Festival of Fools will host the second International Showcase of the Mysteries and Drolls project seeking to revive the European Popular Theatre, rediscovering ancient street theatre and the role of the buffoon through the contemporary theater work. We have closed the artists & companies applications the 16th January 2021 with 97 applications from 22 european countries. The proposals came from the sectors like street theatre, puppetry, contemporary circus, contemporary dance, performance. 25 of these will be selected for the showcase.


What is the showcase?
The showcase is an online industry event, an opportunity for programmers to see street theatre work and for artists to meet programmers. The aim is to create programming opportunities for festivals, and bookings for artists. The showcase will be attended by at least 30 international programmers from a range of European countries who will each be seeking to book at least one show from those featured.


When will it happen?
The showcase will be presented by Festival of Fools on the 24th and 25th February 2021, from approximately 10am to 3pm each day (UK time). If selected as Artist or Company, you will need to participate in half a day of online activity with us on one of these days. If selected as Festival Organiser or Programmer, you can stay with us for the entire two-day program. There will be the opportunity for programmers to network together informally and participate in group discussion. We are working hard to make the days as varied and engaging as possible.


What is involved?
During the event we will be screening trailers of the selected shows, and the show creators will take part in a hosted Q&A attended by festival directors and programmers. For Artists & Companies: One-person shows receive a fee of € 100,00 for participating, duos receive € 200,00 and trios receive € 300,00. For programmers: The first 30 organisations to register for a place will receive a contribution of € 100,00 after they have attended the event and completed a very short survey.


What are we looking for?
Artists & Companies: We are looking for shows created by performers from all European countries, but we particularly welcome applications from the project partner countries: Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland and the UK. We are looking for one-person shows, duos and trios only. The senior creative teams of Festival of Fools and Open Street aisbl (Bruxelles) will choose which shows will be included in the showcase. Festival & Programmers: Two of the aims of the M&D project are to create opportunities for artists and to support artists’ mobility. We therefore hope that each organiser will book at least one of the acts they see in the showcase for work in the future. Only festivals who pay artists are eligible to participate.


Who can apply?
Artists & Companies. To be eligible for selection you must meet the following criteria:
1. Your work must be in line with the artistic aims of the project. We welcome contemporary and traditional work equally.
2. Your 2 – 3 minute trailer must be of good technical quality, so that we can see and hear your show clearly. It should feature one show, not lots of different shows.
3. You must be available to attend the online Q&A on 24 or 25 February 2021.
4. Your show must be ready to tour from April 2021 at the latest.
Festival & Programmers: We welcome programmers from all European countries, but we are particularly keen to hear from festivals from the project partner countries: Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland and the UK.


Deadline: Registration for Programmers opens on 19th January and close on 17th February 2021


Do you have the requirements to participate? What are you waiting for?!!! Go immediately to the registration page and submit your application as programmer.

I bandi per le candidature giŕ disponibili

On 18th May 2020, given the progressive improvement of pandemic conditions and the loosening of safety rules in many European countries, Open Street aisbl decided to take a census of the European network of performing arts festivals and launched a European agenda of main Street Festivals. If in 2020 the utility of our agenda was sadly just to report the cancellation of all events due to Covid19, now Open Street, in cooperation with operators all over the continent, is able to report the dates of events to be confirmed or already confirmed for 2021. This initiative aims to promote artistic programming, defend the creative chain and help the restart of all sector

You can contribute by entering the dates of your international event yourself. If you are an artist and you know all the data of the festivals that host you this year, you can contribute to the Agenda too.
The Open Street Association keeps frequent contacts with main European events in order to achieve all useful info for artists and companies. In this period the programmers begin to fix dates, contact companies and launch the application for participation to their events. Here you can find the result of our first round of contacts.
