El Gran Disparate “El Gran Disparate” | Magic | Uruguay
Born in Uruguay, with a restless spirit and a nomadic heart, Diego Martinez began his artistic career in the world of photography in the 90s underground of Montevideo. In 2002 he left his camera in Mexico to dedicate himself to circus and street art.
Later on, in Brazil, together with Jorge Zagarzazú, he created the company The Pambazos Bros. For 15 years, they produced five shows and performed in 25 countries. Since 2020 Diego has been living in Ibiza, Spain and performing in his first solo show “El Gran Disparate”.
A magician with a supposed past filled with glory and glamour in the great shows of Las Vegas faces today a demode present without lights or glitter. Time passes, and the rabbit does not want to leave the top hat. Despite the change, the artist keeps his nobility and is tireless in fighting for his ideas and impressing the audience.
Diego performed at BuskerBus in 2010 as part of the duo The Pambazos Bros.
Gato Blanco Gato Negro “Atempo” | Circus, clownery, diabolo, acrobatic | Argentina
Paula and Javier are graduates of various artistic schools in Rosalio in Argentina. Since 2017, they have been working together as Gato Blanco Gato Negro.
“Atempo” is a silent circus-theatre act that combines physical comedy, acrobatics, diabolo and ball juggling, archery, and human puppets.
Two exotic clowns full of extravaganza present their invention to the audience: a circus clock. Numbers transform into juggling balls, bells into diabolos, hands into arrows, with music and dancing marionettes inside. Suddenly the clock stops. As time is unravelling, the show comes together.
It will be the first time for Gato Blanco Gato Negro to perform in Poland.
Juggling Dom “PYRAMID” | Juggling | Australia
Four wooden pedestals display juggling balls stacked in a pyramid shape.
This performance explores the different possibilities of constructing and breaking apart the pyramid shape through complex juggling sequences. The games developed during the performance play with the audiences’ expectations, with fast-surprising moments of balls being kicked, hit and rebounded in unexpected directions. This contrasts the precisely choreographed juggling sequences and satisfying repetition when the balls suddenly reform the familiar pyramid shape.
Domenyk grew up in Australia and from a young age enjoyed entertaining. He completed a Bachelor in circus arts at Stockholm University,
It will be the first time for Juggling Dom to perform in Poland.
Justin 3 “Lullabies from Space” | Music | Lithuania

Linda Wander Vellar “White Hole – a dialogue on upcoming times”, “HOOPnosis – the ritual” | Acrobatics, hula hop | Italy
Linda Wander Vellar brings to BuskerBus two different shows that combine theatre and circus techniques.
“White Hole” – a dialogue on upcoming times
They say that in every fraction of time, there is a space, and in that space, our quantic particles travel toward the future. “White Hole” is about this space and the possibility of jumping from our everyday life to other alternative personal dimensions. During a common occurrence, like the afternoon tea ritual, doors can open into sparkling and mysterious realities. The show premiered in 2022
HOOPnosis – the ritual
“HOOPnosis” is more than just a circus show. It’s a ritual and a magical ceremony of acrobatics. The luckiest in the audience can experiment with hypnosis, and be part of a physical and acrobatic experience. Join the trance, strange circles and twisted bodies.
Linda will perform in Poland for the first time.

Will has been twirling hats, squeezing through tennis rackets, and juggling knives across America, but has never performed at BuskerBus or in Poland before.
LudiLò „Resta” | Aerial Acrobatics | Italy
Two characters with an inclination for order and cleanliness. A space that expands horizontally and vertically with no movement limits in both directions. A mysterious rope that becomes their means of transport.

Muti Santarosa “Muti Santarosa – Experience” | Magic, clownery | Chile
Muti Santarosa philosophy is based on Mexican actor Mario “Cantinflas” Morenowho’s quote that the first obligation of human beings is to be happy, and the second one is to make other people happy.
Felipe comes from Chile. He started practising magic tricks when he was 8-years old. Later on, he focused on pantomime and clownery. One day his friend gave him the book “Cartomagia Fundamental” by Vicente Canuto. It brought magic back to his life and inspired him to create the shows and make people laugh at him, laugh at themselves and laugh with him.
It will be the first time for Muti Santarosa to perform in Poland.
Terra de Areia | Music | Poland
Terra de Areia is a musical project by Karolina Głogowska (viola, vocals) and Hanna Włodarczyk (guitar), graduates of the Wrocław Academy of Music. They are known from bands such as Nesztojegore, HuRaban, Cukry and Faustina Calavera.
Terra de Areia’s music is a fusion of their experience in performing classical music, folk music, improvisation, as well as numerous journeys around the world in search of remarkable sounds and melodies. This has resulted in a very ‘southern’ project, with lyrics mainly in Romance languages and an island atmosphere full of warm winds from Cape Verde, the Canary Islands and South America.
Michal Nienadowski (double bass), Gerhard Kaulard (double bass) and Natalia Orkisz (cello, vocals) collaborate with the project.
Terra de Areia will perform in Zielona Góra and Krotoszyn.

They will present different skills, including magic and juggling, and prove to the audience that although they look alike, they have their unique personalities.
