The Paris School – The Emigrant Artists

5 October | Friday | 19:30 | Red hall | lecture | bg | tickets: 10 BGN


During the 18th and 19th centuries France was the centre of a very strong art movement, which gave birth to modern styles such as Realism, Impressionism and Divisionism. Artistic freedom and individuality at the turn of the century became a core value and culminated in the early 20th century into bringing about the complete release of paintings from their traditional functions.

Between 1900 and 1940, Paris became a magnet for artists from all over the world and the centre of all experiments and innovations in art. This colourful Bohemian community of emigrant artists, poets and musicians was concentrated in Montparnasse cafes, salons, studios and galleries. The Parisian artistic environment of freedom and innovation gave life to movements such as Fauvism, Cubism, Orphism, Dada, Surrealism.

The Paris School was not a single artistic movement. The term came to describe the phenomenon, which ended at the start of the Second World War.

Some artists associated with the Paris School are: Marc Chagall, Modigliani, Constantin Brâncuși, Marie Vorobieva-Marevna, Diego Rivera and others.

The Start of the ХХth Century – Bulgarian artists in Paris

9 October | Tuesday | 19:30 | lecture | bg | Red hall | tickets: 10 BGN

Maurice de Vlaminck writes in his memoirs: "This whole human gathering, in which with few exceptions all the peoples of the world were represented, was a weird, strange spectacle. Everyone seemed to have been specially selected as a unique specimen of his country. Some were shaved, others had beards, yet others had large black sunglasses, long hair or shiny bald heads. The style, the colours, the shape of the clothing complemented the strangeness of this picture, which was at the same time reminiscent of a contemporary music hall and a film by Charlie Chaplin."

Probably the visitors of the legendary Parisian cafes in the 20s and 30s of the 20th century looked like this. The Bulgarian painters were no exception to this colourful group. Nearly every prominent Bulgarian author from the late 19th to the mid-20th century had studied in, specialized in or visited Paris - a centre of radical change and innovation in art.

In this lecture, besides Jules Pascin and George Papazov, we will look at many other Bulgarian artists who developed the new, avant-garde styles in their own way.

Reverse Angle – a platform for short movies


11 October | Thursday | 19:00 | screening and discussion | Red hall | bg, en subtitles | free entrance

In the first autumn edition of the plafform for new Bulgarian short movies "Reverse Angle", we will show three films about the possible boundaries of dreams. Elena Moshovova will host the event. The special guest will be Petya Aleksandrova (New Bulgarian University), cinema critic.

Here is more about the movies:

Expectation / Expectation
(Bulgaria, 2018, 5 min, screenwriter, director and cameraman: Ivan Abadzhiev; with the participation of: Vassil Vitanov; production: Ivan Abadjiev Films)

What happens when a young man struggles with his own expectations?

Maybe Tomorrow
(Bulgaria-Germany, 2017, 24 min, screenplay: Georgi Ivanov, Martin Iliev; director: Martin Iliev; producer: Aleksandar Stanishev; music by: Dieter Doletzel, Century Rolls Music; with: Mariy Rosen, Simona Halacheva Metodieva, Martin Iliev, Alexander Stanishev; production: Wonderland EOOD)

Awards and nominations: Belgium 2017 - Best Film; Balchik 2017 - First prize; SoIndependent Film Festival, Sofia 2017 - Best Bulgarian Short Film)


I am Sam, meaning, this is my name. I have not been out for 2 years, 232 days and 18 hours ...

The Snowgirl
(Bulgaria, 2016, 28 min; director: Ilina Perianova; writer: Ilina Perianova; cinematography: Andrey Kulpin; composer: Björn Norralt; editor: Nadya Prakhova, Baris Demir, Ilina Perianova; producer:Y agama aka Marianna Perianova, Ilina Perianova, Maria Kriisa; cast: Ekaterina Egorova, Evgenyi Gaichuk, Helen Rekkor, Aleksandr Zhilenko; set design: Maarja Pabunen, Ilina Perianova.)

A mysterious girl appears in the lives of an elderly childless couple and a troubled young man and transforms their understanding about love and life. Loosely based on the Russian fairy tale about Snegurochka, this story is about miracles and trusting the divine forces at work in our lives, and at the same time a poignant metaphor for global warming.


More about "Reverse Angle"
Reverse Angle has existed since 2016. Its aim is to give the authors of Bulgarian short films another opportunity to meet with a variety of audiences and cinema professionals to discuss their work and get feedback.

The platform is supported by the Culture Program in Sofia and will run until the end of November 2018. More than 40 films have been shown by the platform so far.

Home of Sheep and Dreams

14 October - premiere | Sunday | 19:30 | theatre | 50 min | bg | Red hall | entrance: 12/10 BGN

One sheep, two sheep, three sheep ... There is a crowd of people in front of the little house of a blind fortuneteller. They stand and wait for dawn, and she is dreaming. A white ram leads her through the paths of times. She passes through a burnt down village in Thrace in 1913, she meets a boy from 1990 running away to the West and a lost cow from 2018. She hears the voices of the unborn people of 2030. People from all over the world, from the past and the future, pull her hands and want to tell her their stories. They are all looking for something or fleeing something, houses are changing their owners and all houses are abandoned, and all people - homeless. But it is just a dream, right?

Author and performer: Zdravka Kamenova
Director: Gergana Dimitrova
Live music: Pavel Terziiski
Live video: Nikola Nalbantov
Assistant director: Olga Kotchanova
Producers: The European Undernational Affairs Network, The Red House Centre for Culture and Debate, Maxim Gorky Theatrе.

Premiere:
14 October, 19:30, The Red House
19 and 20 October, 19:00, Berlin, Maxim Gorky Theatrе.

More information:
The show is part of the Haunted Houses project - a multinational co-production about the unreachable ideal of a pure nation. At the beginning of the 20th century and after the First World War, history was marked by the violent expulsions of large groups of people and the ethnic cleansing of regions. The aim was to clearly state that newly formed nation states were pure and homogeneous, although only a century back the same territories had been multi-ethnic. These processes were the reason for the conflicts and wars that arose between Balkan countries in the period 1912-1923, which led to signing contracts regulating the "exchange of populations" between warring states as a means of making peace. To what extent does this illusion of an imagined homogeneous community affect us still?

Theatre companies from Sofia, Athens and Istanbul used documentary sources to track the historical waves of migrations in the period 1912-1923, bringing the abandoned houses and their inhabitants back to life. For nearly a year, the teams researched the issue and exchanged ideas. The result was the development of three theatre shows to be presented at the Berlin War and Peace Festival. The performances were created in three different cities, but are interconnected. Together, they reveal how frighteningly similar to the recent past are today's political calls for a pure and united nation.

"The Tree" is an event that will encourage children and young people from the Women's Market in Sofia (Zhenski pazar), their parents and casual passers-by to share their stories about living in poverty. The event is organized on the occasion of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (17 October) in partnership with ATD (All Together in Dignity) Fourth World - an international movement to combat extreme poverty. Everyone will have the opportunity to leave their message on the leaves of a large cardboard tree. The participants will answer the questions "What makes me poor?" and "What makes me rich?", as well as offer their ideas on ways to overcome poverty. You can support the event by joining personally.

The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty has been celebrated in many places around the world since 1987 at the initiative of ATD Fourth World. The day provides opportunities for meetings that can usually not take place - meetings between the poorest and other citizens. The poorest are the first victims of various types of violence. The aim of the day is to encourage and deepen mutual understanding, solidarity and shared responsibility among individuals and groups of different backgrounds. This year, the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is under the slogan "Let us build a world full of respect for the human rights and dignity of all."

"Everything has been figured out, except how to live."

Jean-Paul Sartre

A hyperactive physical theatre comedy - peeking into the life of a couple, and thoughts about death. The average man lives 70 years, defecates 127,750 times, takes a shower 51,100 times, changes his clothes 76,650 times and dies once! So how would you like to die? We work, run, come, go, love, fight, create, destroy, and all that – for what?

Oded Zadok and Kazuyo Shionoiri return in a new duet, toying with the meaning of life while performing their daily routines as a couple. Using radical physicality and the exhaustion of the body.

Team:
Oded Zadok – creator, performer
Kazuyo Shyonori – creator, performer
Johnny Tal – light and sound design

Tickets: 10 BGN for the preliminary sale at EPAY-GO: https://goo.gl/uWTfsm. You can also buy tickets at The Red House before the event for 15 BGN.

Happy Beckett

20 October | Saturday | 20:00 | interactive theatre | 90-100 min | bg, en subtitles | Pesha Nikolova hall | tickets: 10 BGN

"Happy Beckett" is an interactive performance inspired by the structure and the imagery in "Happy Days" – Samuel Beckett's play. The creative team lets go of the play's original text and uses texts provided by the audience of the performance instead. This means that each performance has its own dramaturgic language, but the structure is always the same. The aim is to achieve the creation of a multicoloured mandala blown away by the wind in the end.

This format is complicated and requires the preliminary active participation of the audience to function. In order to become a playwright, each of the 25 spectators of "Happy Becket" must visit happybeckett.com, choose a date, fill out a brief questionnaire, and only then buy a ticket.

The play was produced by Alos Centre with the financial support of Sofia Municipality's 2017 Culture Programme.

Team:
Mariy Rosen – concept and direction
Mariy Rosen and Ana Valchanova – scenario
Petya Boyukova – stage design
Konstantin Timoshenko – music
With: Ana Valchanova, Mariy Rosen, Petya Boyukova, Konstantin Timoshenko

Tickets: The seats are limited. Prior registration is required at happybeckett.com at least 72 hours before the performance. After you register, you will receive a link for buying a ticket.

Still to Come


21 October | Sunday | 11:00-16:30 | workshop | en | Red hall | free entrance

A 1-day workshop with Rahel Barra (Germany), Ida Daniel (Bulgaria), Ana Dubljević ( Serbia), Frida Laux (Germany) and Zrinka Užbinec ( Croatia)

We would like to warmly invite you (with the potential to raise your temperature) to spend some time with us and experience some of the shared practices we developed for our performance "Still to Come, a Feminist Pornscape".

We want to awake pleasure with you, to overcome duality and the need for climaxing and instead look dor a tantric experience with a passion for what is yet to come. We want to share a space where we can all desire together, but differently.

During our work process, we collected practices centred on the themes of softness, multiplicity, beyondness, lust for what is yet to come, dissolving and gathering anew, which we want to share with you. We invite you to dance with us with your back holes as we disappear into each other in an infinite love affair. We want to sext each other like in 1996 - like our infantile selves merged by our mutating age and gender into a fictional "I" for whom virginity is nothing but a zodiac state.

The workshop is open to the wider audiences. If you want to participate, send an email to [email protected]u, answering the following: "Please briefly describe your interest in porn, dance, life, or in us."

Application deadline: 15 October 2018.

Transcending duality and climaxing, "Still to Come, a Feminist Pornscape" desires something else: softness, multiplicity, beyondness, lust for what is yet to come, dissolving and gathering anew. We are dancing with our butt holes while undressing, redressing, covering our faces, feet, our prosthetic holes, making tongue choreography, 1,2,3. Our hair is a radical softness; we disappear into each other in an infinite love affair. We play dungeon masters where we build islands of faceless people and our bodies morph. We want to sext like in 1996, like our childhood selves merged by our mutating age and gender into a fictional "I" to whom virginity is nothing more than a zodiac state.

Can we approximate a utopian sci-fi-pornochoreography grounded in the here and now?

In the last two years, the political, social, economic changes in the United States have profoundly altered American theatrical practice. In this conversation, American stage directors Alikhan, Fadul, Martinez, Watson, Stelian-Shanks, playwrights Nilan, Tim Lord and philanthropist Susan Lang will share these transformations, including new rehearsal practices, intimacy staging techniques, colour-blind versus colour-conscious casting, the wave of artistic leader resignations from the #MeToo scandals, theatre-as-resistance, transgender representation, and the playwrights now produced (and those being removed from the field).

The panelists will welcome questions and discussions, and afterward will join the audience in a celebration of the 10-year international exchange collaboration between The Drama League of New York and Art Office.

All That Remains


24 October | Wednesday | at 16:30 and at 18:00 | documentary promenade theatre | 80 min | tickets: 15/10 BGN

"All Тhat Remains" is a documentary performance in which the audience, led by the actors, takes a walk on three central streets in Sofia to witness situations from a parallel city life. In front of the memorial plates, the garbage cans, the graffiti and the invisible hiding places, the audience suddenly finds itself talking to the people who live with "what remains" after us.

During the preparation work, the team met dozens of recyclers in different regions of Sofia. Most of the waste collection points in the city were visited and the stories of the people who support their families and themselves with the money from recycling were recorded. These „anonymous" garbage collectors who we often pass by with apathy and suspicion are in fact among the most important engines of Sofia's constant renewal.

Team:
Neda Sokolovska – director
Ivan-Alexander Todorov – stage designer
Rada Ezekieva – coordinator
With: Petko Kamenov, Plamena Pencheva, Stoyka Stefanova, Georgi Naldgiev

The play was produced by Documentary Theatre Studio Vox Populi and the ecological association „Za Zemyata". It was implemented wiith the financial support of "Za Zemyata" and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.

Tickets: you can buy a ticket for 10 BGN during the preliminary sale at EPAY-GO: https://www.epay.bg/go/1056176397. You can also buy a ticket for 15 BGN at The Red House before the performance.

In this race with themselves, and also with time, games crystallize as the most powerful form of living. After Love.

Constellations won the Evening Standard Theatre Award for 2012 for Best Drama. This is the first staging of the play in Bulgaria and the first independent production of the newly established Heliotrope Theatrical Association. The performance is a professional debut for the actors Nevena Nikolova and Vassil Mihailov.

A good death. Not a paradox, but humaneness. Freedom is a choice that has not been given to me. Could this body be called mine if I have no rights over it. Without the right to death, the right to life is a lie. Civilized silence ...
