De Gevleugelde Stad Ieper 2011 - City of Wings Ypres
Maarschalk Fochlaan 1
“De Gevleugelde Stad Ieper” (“City of Wings Ypres”) is an international promotion festival for street theatre and contains two parts:
1. -the promotion festival on the street
2. -and the indoor trade fair.
Still before the street theatre season really starts, the Belgian and foreign street artists - professionals, semi-professionals and new talent - can promote and present themselves and their (new) show to organizers/promoters. These are especially and personally invited to come and see the shows during the festival and afterwards to meet the artists in the artist bar or in the trade fair.
All interested street artists can register. The organisation - assisted by a advisory committee - selects the artists who can take part.
On the promotion festival (in the historical centre and on the ramparts of Ypres) the artists present their shows to the organizers/promoters. This festival is also free accessible for everyone else, to give the artists a great and needed audience.
The trade fair is a meeting point between artists and organizers/promoters. The stands are reserved for partners of “De Gevleugelde Stad Ieper” (“City of Wings Ieper”) and artists (or their representatives) who are SELECTED for the current edition of the festival. This fair is only accessible for artists and organizers/promoters.
