URB Festival is here again
Kiasma Theatre’s annual festival of urban art URB takes place on 28.7.-5.8. The festival showcases young artists and their views on contemporary society and its urban aspects.
The opening festivities, focusing on street dance, are held on 28.7. in front of Kiasma, on the grassy field where the recently built stage and skate ramp Surfing the Apocalypse serves as a centerpiece.
During the first weekend, Kiasma Theatre presents a screening of Skateistan: Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul, a documentary about skate culture in Afghanistan.
The Football Opera, presented 3.8.-5.8., acts as the culmination of the festival week. The performance combines the whole of football fan culture into one single stand. Dramatic emotions, hotdogs, support songs and dances all blend into a one great portrayal of football and its most enthusiastic supporters. The Belgian hit performance is now performed for the first time outside its hometown Ghent.
Performances, events, workshops, dance, exhibitions, walking tours and much more. Additional information on URB 12 website.
