In 2019, the Ninth Voronezh Platonov Arts Festival will lose one of its most spectacular events – the street theaters parade, which traditionally took place on Prospekt Revolutsii. The parade will not take place due to the reconstruction of the street planned by the authorities just at the time of the Platonovfest. This was told at a press conference by the festival’s Artistic Director Mikhail Bychkov on Thursday, December 20.
According to Mikhail Bychkov, “Space” show by Spanish high-altitude theater Grupo Puja!, which will be shown on Admiralteyskaya Square, will be a worthy alternative to the street theaters parade. There will be two performances – on June 1 and June 2. Admission will be free.
Grupo Puj! will demonstrate an air show with elements of sports vertical acrobatics and stunts at an altitude of 40 m. The artists’ performance combines the theater, live music, circus and dance.
The team is over 20 years old. During this time, their air shows have been watched by over a million viewers from 35 countries of the world.
