Walking acts and street artists show: contacts with ancient Greece

Walking acts and buskers shows have their roots in ancient Greece, where it was usual to organize theatre shows open to the public. At the time Theatre had an educational and political aim (intended in the sense of participation in the life of the polis = city) whose sharing was of absolute importance, so much that State recognized the payment of the "attendance fee" to the audience attending theatrical performances. Theatre's shows were held in the famous amphitheaters, areas specifically dedicated to the show whose acoustics are still studied today as a symbol of perfection. Actors were generally men, even if the character of the dramatization was a woman. The actors of Greek theatre wore stage clothes and typical shoes, very high boots that we can venture to define as ancestors of the "stilts" of our modern walking acts that stilts walkers use to perform in extraordinary stilts parades. Greek theatre lived on its relationship with the audience and on live performance, an element of contact with modern street theatre shows. We can find the same even in walking acts and in street artists’ shows, that is to say, the fundamental relationship between the actor who performs live, and his audience who follows his actions. The "live" component of walking acts and street theatre shows, ensures that the production and realization of the show are always unique and never the same, a representation "that every time is reborn and revived fortified by the public's consensus" (Silvio D'Amico, Storia del Teatro). But in walking acts, this direct and immediate link between buskers and audience, mixed with its walking component, has an even greater and so strong attraction power, that the audience physically follows the show and street artists moving along their entire path.

Events organization with walking acts and Buskers performances: international Buskers Festivals

However, artistic events linked to walking acts and to buskers’ performances are gaining in importance and success. France is the driving nation in the field of buskers' events with the organization of famous street theatre festivals (or buskers festivals), such as those of Aurillac and Chalon. But Italy is also moving towards a recognition of Street Theatre by the Ministry of Culture.
