DEBUTS ON THE EDGE SERIES PRESENTS:

No Exit

THEATRE
4, 25 Oct. | 19:30 | Red hall | BG | Tickets: 12/10 BGN


No Exit is a theatre adaptation of a play written by Jean- Paul Sartre – philosopher, writer and Nobel Prize winner. Three strangers are damned in Hell. Striving for salvation makes them face their own weaknesses and leads them to extremes. Hell is a place where life, character and existence are unthinkable unless we have a mirror to reflect us. The corrective is other people. No Exit is a provocation to reach for our goals and search ways to achieve them.

LOW COST

DOCUMENTARY-SENSORY PERFORMANCE
6, 7 Oct. | 18:00, 20:00 | All halls | BG | Tickets: 12 BGN


LOW COST is inspired by the social dimensions of tourism in Bulgaria. Questions like how we present ourselves to the outside world, how we think of the separations "abroad" and "at home", what kind of mask we create and what personality hides beneath it, are the basis for exploring the symptoms of the national identity problem and its presentation in the XXIth century. The performance is a journey into different dimensions of the tourist experience.

The Invisibles No. 3: HOME
VERBATIM THEATRE
10 Oct. | 19:30 | Red hall | BG | Tickets: 15/10 BGN.


The performance is built on interviews with homeless people conducted in winter, when they are most vulnerable. The actors reproduce verbatim (from Latin, "word for word") their thoughts on what home, the street, love, family and dreams mean to them. What does their life turn into once they end up on the street? Why is Alastor, the spirit of solitude, their constant companion? This is the third show of the series The Invisibles by Documentary Theatre Studio Vox Populi. It explores the lives of unknown and marginalized groups and minorities.

Planet Libel
GRAPHIC DESIGN EXHIBITION | SPARTAK DERMENDJIEV
11 Oct. | 18:30 – opening | 12–31 Oct. | every working day
10:00 to 17:30 | Pesha Nikolova hall| Free entrance


Parts of manuscripts, repeatedly published and tendentiously manipulated, create a parallel reality – compelling, funny, poignant, and sometimes scandalous, but entirely false. The repeated overlay of a text transforms it into a maze of countless words where meaning is lost, the letters ossify, and the image with its embossed outlines starts to resemble the surface of a planet. Probably our planet, probably our world.
More
The exhibition by Spartak Dermendjiev shows how "an unreliable, but poignant and plausible text, and perhaps tolerated by society for its poignancy and plausibility, grows imperceptibly and swells from something "helpless" and "harmless" into a factor we take into consideration", Dermendjiev says of the exhibiton: "The idea is drawn from a variety of texts, notes, papers and reports owned by various government institutions, as well as from publications on various sites and comments under various articles in established media that have all acquired publicity in different ways. The texts create an avalanche of "information", which makes discerning the truth impossible. The texts create a world without truth where we are compelled to conform to libel."

The exhibition includes graphics crafted with the help of a computer and printed on paper. They are divided into several cycles. The first and main cycle – Planet Libel – follows the emergence of the new planet. "The multiple overlay of a single text turns it into a maze and a space filled with countless letters, words and signs forms where the point is lost, the signs and letters harden, outlines take shape and start to look like relief that resembles the surface of a planet." The other graphics show idyllic landscapes on Planet Libel: in the cycle" Ocean " overlaid texts remind of shadows and the glistening of an endless water surface; in "Fossils" the multiple layers look like fossils where the history of the planet is preserved.

These are "Zhivot v mazeto" ("Life in the Basement", 2013, 19 min) by Ivan Abadzhiev, "Chergodeiki" ("Carpet Makers", 2017, 27 min) by Elena Stoycheva and "Piratski Galabi sa Moite Chuvstva Raneni" ("Pirate Pigeons are my Hurt Feelings", 2017, 6 min) by Biljana Krylova.

More on the films:

"Zhivot v Mazeto" ("Life in the Basement")
(2013, 19 min, directed by Ivan Abadzhiev, in Bulgarian)

„Life in the Basement " is the dramatic story of a man of Roma origin who lives in a basement. You can see the movie trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8GPYDHD2mQ

"Chergodeiki" ("Carpet Makers")
(2017, 27 min., directed by Elena Stoicheva, in Bulgarian, with English subtitles)

Carpet making is a disappearing craft in Bulgaria. The movie follows the creator of the film, Elena Stoicheva, as she assembles an old loom with a group of elderly women from the Rhodope Mountain village of Dryanovo. Together, they create original rug models. During this entertaining endeavour, Stoicheva tells of the loss of traditional knowledge, of village life hardships, of the clash with new ideas and the solidarity of the women.

"Piratski Galabi sa Moite Chuvstva Raneni" ("Pirate Pigeons are my Hurt Feelings", 2017, 6 min) by Biljana Krylova
(2017, 6 min., directed by Biliana Kirilova, in English)

The film is divided into two parts – performance and documentary — and sets out to find out where the characters are more real.

DEBUTS ON THE EDGE SERIES PRESENTS:

Mainstream
DANCE PERFORMANCE
12 Oct. | 19:30 | Red hall| Entrance: 12/10 BGN

MORE ON THE WORKS

Iliana Kuncheva | Automated Self |

The interactive installation Automated Self explores our virtual identities on social networks. Through a careful selection of images and activities we share on the Web, we construct our personalities. They are created to be liked and this is why they are always more glamorous, more beautiful, more successful. The more "likes" they collects, the more our egos grow. Our real life personalities become increasingly dependent on this adoration and are gradually altered and subjected to the needs of their virtual equivalents, looking increasingly more interesting, different, sometimes even ridiculous ways to obtain the necessary "likes".

During the event, the author will create a fake identity using a specially created account on Instagram. When you press a button, a bot installation will find random images in Google, insert a photo of the author in them and share them on the social network. Each time you press the button, the installation will generate new images to populate the social network profile. These images, created entirely at random, will sometimes look quite believable, sometimes illogical, and sometimes completely surreal.

Idea and realization: Iliana Kuncheva
Programming: Martin (libtec.org)

Lilly Dzhagarova

Lilly's project explores the illegal felling of forests. By screening on natural inorganic materials and we can see how a tree grows and what it looks like before it is cut. The most important thing is to realise what do we do ,when we close our eyes to illegal logging.
Проектът на Лили е свързан с незаконното изсичане на горите. Чрез прожекция върху естествени и неорганични материали ще можем да видим как едно дърво израства и как изглежда, преди да бъде отрязано. Най-важното за Лили е да осъзнаем какво правим, когато затваряме очите си за незаконната сеч.

Maya Baltaliyska

The audio-visual performance of Maya explores the tendency of the body to clean up everything you perceive as different, to resist, and failed, to feel, to enjoy and indulges in extremes. Text of Françoise Dolto, Gilles Deleuze, Stéphane Mallarmé and Boyan Manchev is the starting point for writing a "Short poem about the flesh," which will be presented during the event with the actress Augustine-Kalina Petkova and the scenographer Margarita Dancheva

Аудио-визуалният пърформанс на Мая изследва склонността на тялото да разчиства всичко, което разпознава като различно, да се съпротивлява и проваля, да чувства, да се наслаждава и отдава на крайности. Текстовете на Франсоаз Долто, Жил Дельоз, Стефан Маларме и Боян Манчев са отправната точка за написването на „Kратка поема за плътта", която ще бъде представена по време на събитието в екип с актрисата Августина-Калина Петкова и със сценографката Маргарита Данчева.

Nikul Georgiev

Nikul will show a few of the seemingly naïve stop-motion animation with plasticine in the background of musical improvisation – his interpretation of the theory of the big bang and the creation of the universe – as well as watercolour reference to the Rorschach tests and his idea for the perfect movie night.
Никул ще покаже няколко на пръв поглед наивни stop-motion анимации с пластелин на фона на музикална импровизация – неговата интерпретация на теорията за Големия взрив и създаването на Вселената – както и акварелна препратка към теста на Роршах и своята идея за идеалната киновечер вкъщи.

"OUR EUROPE: WHAT KIND OF EUROPE DO WE WANT? " PRESENTS:

Can we talk about one or more Europes?

DEBATE
25 Oct. | 18:30 | French Institute | FR, BG | Free entrance


Does culture really unite Europe? Will the European Union manage to overcome its divisions and take the road to integration and how should it be organized, having in mind the growing diversity?
More
The same dialectic between commonality and difference is at the heart of the economic and social European project: people often talk about a two-speed, even three-speed Europe. The Eurozone has clearly outlined a new border within itself, just like the Schengen Area has. At the same time, the Europe of defense affects only a few member countries on a voluntary basis. Is the gap between East and West, North and South about to disappear, or will increase immeasurably?

This is the seventh debate of the series "Our Europe: What Kind of Europe Do We Want?" organised by the French Institute – Bulgaria and The Red House Centre for Culture and Debate "Andrey Nikolov". The events are held monthly in 2017. Every debate has a French participant and Bulgarian intellectuals who share their visions for the future of our Europe.

Our guests on October 25 will be Jean-Yves POTEL and Rumyana KOLAROVA.

Jean-Yves Potel is a historian and essayist and the author of nearly 15 works on the political and cultural history of Poland and Central Europe. He is a member of the editorial boards of several journals and a contributor to the Holocaust Memorial in Paris. He has held a position as a cultural advisor to the Embassy of France in Warsaw (2001 – 2005). Potel is a doctor of political science and has taught at the Universities Paris VIII, Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, at the Institute for Political Sciences in Paris and at Warsaw University for the past thirty years alongside his administrative career.

Rumyana kolarova is a sociologist, a former education minister in the second cabinet of president Rosen Plevneliev, associate professor of Comparative Politics, head of the Political Science Department and director of the Master's Programme "European Integration" in Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". She has specialized in London (London School of Economics and Political Science), New York (New School for Social Research) and Florence (European University Institute). She is the author of over 50 scientific publications.

The debate will take place at the French Institute ("Slaveykov" Square No. 3, Sofia 1000)

There will be simultaneous translation and the entrance is free.
THE SERIES „IDEOLOGICAL TRAJECTORIES: THE NEW DISSIDENTS" PRESENTS:

The Crisis of Liberalism: a Conversation with Ognian Minchev

DISCUSSION
25 Oct. | 19:30 | Red hall | BG |Free entrance

Ognian Minchev is one of the key public intellectuals interpreting the processes of democratic transformation in Bulgaria since 1989. But with the onset of the so-called "refugee crisis" he has become increasingly critical of European Union policies. Is this the result of ideological repositioning or a rational political analysis?
More | Reservations
How does the rise of populist and anti-emigrant movements in Europe look compared to personal ideological developments? Are we witnessing the collapse of liberalism? The discussion is an attempt for a talk beyond value and identity confrontations.

Radical changes are taking place in political landscapes of Europe and the world. In the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Spain, Germany and the United States, new anti-elite parties and candidates with almost no background are gaining broad support and winning elections, and in general dictating the political agenda. Their positions are varied – leaning both to the left and the right; but they champion a common criticism against traditional elites who have lost touch with the majority of "ordinary voters"'s concerns and interests. These new players have their fierce opponents, they are often called populist, there are public appeals for their exclusion from politics. After decades of skepticism and apathy, confrontation and passion are returning to the core of political life. The negative side of this trend towards highly conflicting identity politics is the narrowing space for conversation.

In this series we analyze without prejudice the ideological displacements in contemporary society and the the grounds a series of prominent public figures find for them. Why do politicians and intellectuals active in the first years of democratic changes are now rebelling against European elites? What turns a convinced pro-European into an advocate of Brexit? What changes in recent years have made such ideological shifts possible? What does it cost to leave the comfort zone of your own reference group, and whether this constitutes a "new dissidence"? Is it the end of liberalism's hegemony, and the end of the "End of History"?

Moderator: Dessislava Gavrilova, The Red House Centre for Culture and Debate.

The series „Ideological Trajectories: the New Dissidents" is organized by The Red House in partnership with the Europe-wide network of debating houses Time to Talk. The series is supported by a grant from the Foundation Open Society Institute in cooperation with the OSIFE of the Open Society Foundations.
