Asfaltart on the streets of Merano
From 10rd to 12th June 2016
Asfaltart is a street theatre festival which has taken place in Merano in the month of June since 2006.
It's an event that attracts large crowds with dancing, lights and colours on the streets of Merano.
The festival, which lasts for three days, opens with a lively and rowdy parade that sets the ball in motion.
Hundreds of street performers coming from all over the world perform along the picturesque streets of the historical old town of Merano.
The city becomes an open-air stage for poets, theatre actors, musicians, acrobats, clowns, fire-breathers, jugglers and trapeze artists who create an almost magical atmosphere in the city with their performances.
