Festival of Live Statues

Festival of Live Statues is the first festival of static art in Slovakia.

For the first time it took place in Spišská Nová Ves on 1 - 2 September 2017.

On 24 - 25 August 2018 the city center of Spišská Nová Ves  came alive once again and for two days we had the unique opportunity to see the famous living statues Big names. Other artistic groups were featured in the accompanying program.

The idea to organize the Festival of Live Statues comes from the artistic director Radovan Michalov, who is also the author of the Big Names. They were the main program of the Festival of  Live Statues 2018.

The Big Names project had its world premiere in March 2015 in Istanbul and has toured around the world - Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Qatar or closer to home Copenhagen and Paris are worth mentioning.

You could see Big Names in Slovakia in the final of the famous show Czecho-Slovakia has talent.
