Mestre Carnival Street Show 2020
Performing arts along the streets
HOPELESS ROMANTICS… APPARENTLY LOST
Art and extravagances spread through the city streets
The kermesse of Concerts, Shows and Art in Piazza Ferretto and in the city streets officially opens on Sunday 9th February with the GRAND OPENING. The protagonist of the day will be a wonderful parade curated by Wavents and created by the artists of the previous night show in Rio di Cannaregio.
The MESTRE CARNIVAL STREET SHOW will be held in two great appointments: on the 15th and the 16th of February, and with the schedule of the “fat week” from the 20th to the 25th of February.
Over 70 companies, 300 artists and 150 shows in 8 days will create a Mestre Carnival Street Show that will overwhelm and make your heart play, expertly leaded by the wise hosts Susie Danesin and Vasco Mirandola.
Every day the PIAZZA FERRETTO STAGE will host professional artists of every kind and their amazing concerts and shows that range from tip tap to circus theatre, from rock bands to the pop string quartet featuring the special guest Neja, worldwide queen of dance hits.
For the children, but also for everyone, the stage will be coloured everyday with the entertaining SFILATA DELLA MASCHERINA (Parade of the little mask), funny games and gags by our crazy hosts.
Every day from 17:00. Registrations open from 16:00 to 17:00.
After the success of last edition, in Piazza Ferretto and in Via Palazzo there will be the PLAYGROUND, dedicated to funny and clever games that inspire the imaginations and wits of adults and children: the Spanish Guixot de 8 with their extraordinary playground made by recycled materials, Nuvoletta Giochi e La Tana dei Tarli with old-time games.
The friendship with the FESTIVAL SHOW continues: on Saturday 15th February, starting at 16:00, the Piazza Ferretto stage will be turned into an open-air casting with the CASTING GIOVANI 2020, open to singers, songwriters, rappers, trappers and bands who want to take the stage of the Radio Birikina and Radio Bella & Monella tour from June to September 2020 (Information: 04237367 - festivalshow.it). The casting will close with the concert of Ellynora, the winner of the 2019 Edition.
On “fat” Friday, February 21st, the Carnival will be celebrated thanks to the HAPPY FRIDAY CARNIVAL EDITION that, besides the shows on stage and in the city centre streets, will also host STRICTLY in Piazza Ferretto, a historical event of the Venetian panorama that for eleven years now has been a synonym for musical entertainment that makes everyone, young and old, dance.
The parkings in the city centre will be free during the Happy Friday starting from 15:00.
The collaboration with M9 continues and there will be three emotional shows at the Cesare de Michelis Auditorium: “Canzoni del Mare Salato”, “Le favole di Gianni Rodari” and “La Ballata di Galliano”. They will be on Sunday 16th, Sunday 23rd and Tuesday 25th February at 18:30.
The Chiostro M9 confirms itself to be core of the Mestre Carnival Street Show with the program of Arte di Strada (Street Art) from 16:00 to 19:00. Then the Chiostro will host the “Carnival Music Love”, a dj set that every night will offer the best music to dance since the 1970s.
There will also be the long-awaited VOLO DELL’ASINO (Flight of the Donkey) on Sunday 23rd March, with the amazing music performance by the PopChords and the stunning flying donkeys by ElementzArt. It will begin at 11.30 in Piazza Ferretto.
A no-limit program of ART AND SPREAD SHOWS with entertaining parades and wandering performances through the city streets, and also shows that will make the city play in Largo Divisione Julia, Piazzetta Battisti, Corte Legrenzi, Via Poerio, Chiostro M9, Auditorium Cesare de Michelis, Via Palazzo.
