In 2011, the Pflasterspektakel, one of Europe`s largest street art festivals, celebrated its 25th anniversary. More than 400 artists from over 40 countries turned the city centre of Linz into a unique setting for international street art with great sophistication, including object and improvisation theatre, music of all kinds, dance, circus artistry, high-wire and fire acrobatics as well as clownery and comedic performance art.
For the big anniversary production, a performance piece with various Pflasterspektakel artists (SILK & SICHER UK, Österreich u.v.m.: "SPIL") was developed and rehearsed during the festival.
