to Sept 19 | CIRCUS FESTIVAL | Chapéus na Rua 2021 | FREE

September 17, 2021 - September 19, 2021


Also known as ‘The Lisbon Circus Festival,’ Chapéus na Rua returns to the streets of Lisbon this weekend for its sixth edition for three days of street artists, street art and, well, hats on the street.

Here’s what the organizers add:
“Based on the concept of busking, these street shows are inspired by the ancient tradition of theatre where there was more direct contact with the spectators in the centre of the polis. The artists will perform their show and then pass around a hat for audience members to make a contribution, depending on their opinion of the show and what they can afford. Passing round the hat serves to educate the audience in that it encourages spectators to value street performances and creates a democratic ticket office, where each individual decides how much to give. Demonstrating the quality of street arts is another of the main objectives of this festival, which will feature 19 Portuguese and foreign artists in its program.”

The festival is set to take place at Mercado De Culturas, Mercado De Arroios and Campo Mártires Da Pátria, Friday through Sunday (Sept 17-19).
