An artistic adventure is not measured in seasons or calendar years. It is a journey, a bias over time, a long-term vision.
The Oposito company is convinced that a street show is a modern artistic language with cosmopolitan roots drawing on theatre and its generosity, on the freedom of poetry and the energy of travellers.
Oposito provokes new encounters, oves weaving new ties, mixing people and genres. It upholds its will to carry on telling cities the stories they have taken the risk to co-write.
Over the years, either singly or in collaboration with our “corporation”, we have invented and set up the necessary tools for the evolution and artistic movement to which we belong: street arts.
