Divine places from Maharashtra state, India

The exhibition introduces the viewer into the aesthetic worldview of Hinduism with its variety of cult forms and imaginary spaces. This is a maze of beliefs, myths and epics where you will want to be lost. What you can except is a bright orange feel of sindoor and a scent of prayer sticks. What does the stone have to say?

The beginning of the 20th century. Silent Farms in the state of New England.
Interrogation room. Maggie, Jane and Ruth are suspected of killing Edgar Stone, who was found dead in the woods by his wife Maggie. Or at least that's what she claims ...
It turns out that all three women have a personal motive to want him dead.
But which of them killed him?

Silence, loneliness, impossible maternity, sexual dissatisfaction, the need to communicate and share, the fanatical fear of God and the punishment, the escape and freedom fixation, and the total inability to get out of this vicious circle - these are the main themes in "Three", which conect the fates of Maggie, Jane and Ruth with the fates of many women around the world.

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 and 15 December, Theater Neumarkt, Zuerich

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.

Happy Beckett
11 December | Tuesday | 19:30 | theatre | Pesha Nikolova | 100 min | Tickets: 15/12 BGN

An interactive theatre performance inspired by the structure and imagery of Samuel Beckett's play "Happy Days". Instead of the original text of the play, the play will be based on texts of the audience on that particular evening. Each performance will have its own dramatic language, but the structure will always remain the same.

The aim is to achieve the arrangement of a multicoloured mandala to be scattered by the wind at the end. The active prior participation of the audience is necessary for this format to work. To become a playwright of the show, each of the 25 viewers of "Happy Beckett" must visit the site happybeckett.com, choose a date, complete a poll, and only then buy a ticket.

Idea and directing: Marij Rosen
Dramaturgy: Mariy Rosen and Anna Valchanova
Stage design and costumes: Petya Boyukova
Music: Konstantin Tymoshenko
Starring: Anna Valchanova, Mariy Rosen, Petya Boyukova, Konstantin Tymoshenko

The project was implemented with the support of Sofia Municipality's 2017 Culture Programme.

12 December | Wednesday | 19:30 | multimedia performance | bg | Red Hall | tickets: 15/10 BGN

The performance "Goodbye, Johan Rice!" is an invitation for artistic action with innovative digital-visual codes. And an entirely new strategy for the interaction with the viewers in Sofia.
The project explores all the possibilities the smartphone can offer. The phone in the hands of the actors is enough to drive different situations of communication with each other, as well as an online connection to the audience.

The mobile device directs, sets up communication codes, triggers real life situations. It is enough to meet the need for a full, emotional interaction with the person in front of you.
The two artists on the stage share a common space, but only use their smartphone to meet.

"Goodbye, Johan Rice!" is a futuristic narrative about the end of verbal communication and the hypothetical time when the sight of a person will not need to go further than the distance to the mobile device: a bold jump in the 3D arms of the digital world.

Director: Neda Sokolovska
Cast: Vasiliya Drebova and Georgi Naldzhiev

Visual environment: Vladislav Iliev and Ivy Ivanova
Coordinator: Rada Ezekieva

*The project is fulfilled with the financial support of the Culture Directorate of Sofia Municipality

after Roland Barthes

"The Mourning Diary" is an attempt at empathy. Seeking to answer the question to what extent we can experience the pain of others and whether we can feel something outside of ourselves at all, the team creates a situation of approaching the gestures of grief. This is an attempt to break the banality and sentiment of pain and see what stands behind it.

Roland Barthes (1915-1980) is a French thinker, a semiologist and philosopher. Among his most important books are "The Preparation of the Novel", "The Fashion System", "Mythologies", "Writing Degreee Zero" and others. "The Mourning Diary" is an unfinished manuscript.

The performance was realized with the kind assistance of the publishing house AGATA-A.

Participants: Martina Krasteva and Viktor Ganchev
Stage designer: Ketty Marinova
Musical arrangement: Lyubomir Minchev, Georgi Atanasov - Minstrell and Ketty Marinova
Directed by: Stefan Prochorov.

This documentary takes us behind the scenes of the award-winning theatrical production from which it takes its name. It tells the story of 14 migrants from the Rhingya ethnicity who live in Canada. They decide to recreate their escape from the brutal persecution in their native Myanmar. The film represents the collective failure to stop ethnic cleansing not the rohings and systematic attempts to erase the history and culture of this community while at the same time slightly unlocking the curtain to the rescue power of art.

We are Ivan Stoyanov and Konstantin Kuchev. On stage we have a violin, two bodies (our own), six texts by Julio Cortázar and you, the audience. Where our musical improvisational performance will lead depends on us and your participation, as well as on the way our collective consciousness changes while searching to answer the question: "Is it possible that the audience and the actors dream the same dream – colourful, hysterical, psychedelic, childish?"
Each performance stands on its own and cannot be repeated – just like the nightfall.

A debut performance by Ivan Stoyanov. Musical environment: Konstantin Kuchev and Ivan Stoyanov; with choreographic elements Janitsa Atanasova; with the voices of: Doriana Malinovska, Gergana Alyakova, Ina Gerginova, Konstantin Kuchev; based on texts by Julio Cortázar; poster design: Joan Sougarev.
