Mysteries & Drolls

2019 is the second year of Mysteries & Drolls, a 3 year cooperative project funded by the EU Creative Europe programme.


The project explores the origins of street theatre, promotes workshops for artists, and explores the creation of contemporary performances influenced by the ancient traditions of jester and buffoon.

The partner companies are:

Festival of Fools

Mercantia Festival from the Municipality of Certaldo, Italy (project leaders, and the oldest Italian street theatre Festival)

Maracaibo production company from Spain

Teatra A production company from Poland

Tempus Fugit production company from Germany

The coordination of the project is being assisted by Open Street.

The participation of the artists in this programme with a Mysteries & Drolls logo is part of the framework of this project.

Festival of Fools will be showcasing the final performance project of the process in 2020.
