Bulgaria’s capital and its inhabitants will have the opportunity to enjoy SofiaDance Week (Sept. 29th – Oct. 6th) for the 5th year in a row. The contemporary dance festival will feature many international guests as always. You will have the chance to see the newest and most interesting trends in the contemporary dance scene presented to you by artists from 3 different continents – Europe, Asia and America.
The forum’s “headquarters” will be at the National Palace of Culture where the various performances will be held. The festival features two new special modules – a workshop for the youngest fans of dance and a SofiaDance Week Cinema; those will take place at 4 other locations in the city.
The amazing opening of the festival took place on Sept. 23rd where everyone could enjoy a Guateque – contemporary dance performed in the air. The artists from “Delrevés” performed this vertical dance on the National Palace of Culture’s eastern façade. What to expect next? You will have the chance to, for example, watch a silhouette theater – “Negative Varieté” or observe the extravagant use of high technologies in Hiroaki Umeda’s works. There’s also a parallel programme consisting of numerous interesting ateliers, open air events and workshops, thus making the festival a must-see! 🙂
