Miasto jako przestrzeń performansu kulturowego
City as a space of cultural performance
Languages of publication
The present paper concerns the performances held in open urban spaces, in places not designed as exhibition or theatre space. This creates new possibilities of use and transformation; the space may serve a new purpose. I am particularly interested in “busking”, a kind of street performance that is overtly commercial. For many, it is fun, for others a temporary way to earn a living, and also to become known as an artist. Contemporary “busking” continues the traditions of old fair shows and folk performances, which involved singing, showing tricks, dancing, juggling and other skills or animal training.
