Last weekend,
when millions of fans were anticipating the July 1 final game in Kyiv, citizens
of Rzeszow were enjoying numerous concerts, exhibitions and performances as a
part of European Stadium of Culture, a Polish-Ukrainian festival and the biggest
art event out of many that take place in the city.  

At noon on Saturday,
up to 20 young people in blue-and-yellow sport clothes are exercising in the
middle of city’s main square, Rynek or Market. Malgorzata Pianowska, 31, a
blond woman with pierced lips, wrote on cobblestones with chalk: “rusz noge,” Polish
for “move your leg.” In this way she welcomes other people to join the city’s sport
performance by Polish and Ukrainian dancers.

“We don’t
need a theater to dance,” she says. “We want to dance in the streets as we are
inspired by the city space and everything around us.” People join the
performance reluctantly because it is 34 degrees Celsius.
