The fourth year of the Lively Street 2015 multi-genre festival will enliven Pilsen in grand style. We can look forward to a total of 3 programme blocks spanning 3 months, 22 days of the programme, and an abundance of Czech and foreign performers. The liveliest Lively Street to date will off er street theatre, gigs, DJs, dance shows, a food festival, Pilsen Fashion Days and much more.
Behind the Door, There is... Theatre is an international showcase of street theatre which every year presents contemporary trends in theatre. The dramaturgy of the event is connected with the concurrent Prague festival Behind the Door and presents two main theatrical lines–afternoon fairy tale performances for children and evening street theatre productions for adults. During the main August block of Lively Street, experienced Czech and foreign musicians will appear on seven stages, bringing in a fresh, bright breeze and musical wind from the Pilsen basin, along with theatre performers and DJs. Th e domestic musical scene will be represented by Lenka Dusilová, Adrian T. Bell , Michal Pavlíček & Monika Načeva, Miro Žbirka, The Tap Tap, Ivan Hlas, Katarzia, Kieslowski, DVA, Prague Conspiracy, Už jsme doma, Fast Food Orchestra and Please The Trees with the Elpida ensemble of seniors.
Representing the Pilsen scene will be Znouzecnost and Glajstr Duo, last year’s winners of the Young Blood project that helps discover young talents from Pilsen and the Pilsen Region. Coming from abroad to please our hearts will be Bosnia’s Dubioza Kolektiv, Moonlight Breakfast (RO), Fanfara Transilvania (RO), Irya’s Playground (SWE) and the popular Israeli surprise Adam Ben Ezra, who will be paying his fi rst ever visit to the Czech Republic! Students from Pilsen schools of arts will also be participating in the programme, within a site-specifi c project called the Lively Gall ery. Lively Street traditionally concludes with the popular Soup Festival, as soup is a word that resonates strongly with the inhabitants of Pilsen! Organised by ArtProm, Pilsen 2015
