Passengers waiting for the train at the rail station couldn’t believe their eyes when a professional “station farewell agency” arrived to put on a spectacular farewell show. This is just one of the “happenings” of a festival that deliberately transforms unexpected settings in Graz and other Styrian municipalities into performance spaces. La Strada is Austria’s first festival that partners with internationally famous artists that explore new forms of expression outside of traditional theatres. The festival encourages experimental productions and assists Austrian artists in establishing itself on the pan-European festival circuit.
For one and a half weeks each year, street theatre, acrobatics, mime, puppet theatre, children’s theatre, dance, and clown performances offer space for meetings between audiences and artists from all over Europe, as well as among locals. La Strada assists visitors in learning more about the Styrian capital and its inhabitants, and it pursues cross-border contacts. As a result, the festival has long been a pillar in Graz’s cultural life.
Things to do In Austria –
Austria, one of Europe’s most popular vacation locations, invites visitors all year long, with sites to explore in both summer and winter. In fact, with some of Europe’s best skiing, winter in the country’s magnificent mountain regions is almost as busy as summer. Visitors are drawn to the Alpine republic’s regions as much as they are to magnificent towns such as Vienna (Wien), the historic capital, and lovely Salzburg, the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Austria, one of Europe’s smallest countries, is mostly an upland country with high mountains, with the Eastern Alps occupying roughly 60% of its territory. The Danube River flows across the northern section of the country for around 350 kilometres from west to east, adding to the country’s attraction as a tourist destination.
