Videogames – the Art of the Digital Era?

2 April | Monday | 18:30 | discussion | Pesha Nikolova | Bg | Free entrance

Recognized as both a type of art and sports, video games have long been the subject of various programmes in universities around the world and of an expanding field of academic research, as well as a hot topic for theoretical, cultural, sociological, pedagogical, but also purely aesthetic debates. Although Bulgarian video game makers have been on the global arena for 20 years, their place in Bulgarian culture is still marginal and Bulgaria's prevailing attitude towards video games is that they are a temporary misunderstanding. What is this discrepancy due to? Will these attitudes change? Just days after the world premiere of the Haemimont game Surviving Mars, Bulgarian video game makers and teachers in the newly created Master's Programme "Digital Media and Video Games" at Sofia University will meet to discuss the present and future of video games. The Master's Programme "Digital Media and Video Games" will also be presented.

With the participation of:
Vesselin Handjiev (Black Sea Games), Gabriel Dobrev (Haemimont Games), Enyo Stoyanov and Miglena Nikolchina (Sofia University "Digital Media and Video Games" Master's Progrmma), Zhana Popova (Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communication, Sofia University).

No exit


Nomination for the actors for the Ikar theatre award in the Debut category


26 April | Thursday | theatre | Bg | 19:30 | 90 min | Red hall | 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. The verdict is free choice. A choice we have no courage to make.

The performance is produced by Other Line Theatre.

Directing, adaptation and sound: Darey Chavdarov
Stage and costume design: Rositsa Grancharova
Technical management: Peter Sapondzhiev

Each author has voluntarily given their work to be exhibited. Every work shows the different opinion of its creator and his/her perspective on the problems, but also his/her inner world with yin and yang – like 'like' culture and hate speech. There are total nihilists, of course. But the caravan goes on...

The Bulgarian Debate Association presents:
Is Shared Economy Useful or Harmful?

20 April | Friday | 19:00 | public debate Bg | Red hall | Free entrance

Context: In 2016, the European Commission declared itself in favor of shared economy. It advised Member States not to forbid or impede it with over-regulation. "The next economic miracle in Europe can be born in the context of shared economy. Our role is to encourage a regulation model that allows for the development of new business models while at the same time protecting consumers and guaranteeing fair taxation and working conditions," said Commission Vice-President Katainen. In 2017, however, the European Court of Justice ruled that Uber's car-reservation service is in the transport sector and, therefore, EU countries can regulate the conditions for its provision.The Court has stated that, as follows from EU legislation, Member States have to regulate the conditions under which such services are provided, in accordance with the general rules of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU. Shared economy was thus once again put at a crossroads. On 20 April, the experts and debaters will present the key arguments for and against the development of shared economy in the European Union.

About the project

The debate is organized by the Bulgarian Debate Association as part of the project "Argument Europe", which is realized with the financial support of Sofia Municipality and in partnership with The Red House Centre for Culture and Debate "Andrey Nikolov".

International Festival for Contemporary Dance and Performance "Antistatic"
dance, workshops, discussions

From April 20 to 30 Antistatic, the International Festival for Contemporary Dance and Performance declares a "state of emergency" in Sofia, 11th degree, in line with the number of festival editions so far. The definition of "state of emergency" imposed by the world we live in is threat, fear, terrorism and control. But in Antistatic's dimension the norms imposed upon ourselves immediately cease to apply. For us "state of emergency" means that we are building a territory where we displace the rules and free more space for contemporary art.

Real Time Composition – a workshop with Mark Tompkins

21 –22 April | Saturday, Sunday | 11:00 – 16:00 | a workshop with Mark Tompkins | Red hall | Entrance: by invitation only, following an application process

When improvising, each performer is working simultaneously on many different levels of perception: listening, watching, sensing, acting, reacting to one's self and one's partners. The art of real time composition resides in each performer's ability to remain open to the wealth of internal and external impulses and to receive, process and propose material in an uninterrupted flow of feedback. How do we avoid overload, stay actively attentive, do nothing and still act? These questions are addressed through a series of improvisational games and scores that explore and develop the sensations and perceptions of touch, vision, hearing, weight. To sharpen our inner and outer concentration, we explore the notions of shifting, letting go, simultaneous time, active/passive, centre/support and the roles of performer, witness and spectator.

Mark Tompkins is an American dancer, choreographer, singer and teacher. Tompkins moved to France in 1973 and discovered dance with Harry Sheppard. In 1975, he made his first solos and worked with contact improvisation icons Steve Paxton and Lisa Nelson. In 1983, he founded the Company I.D.A. Solos, group pieces, concerts and improvised performances are steps of his journey into the performance world initiated in the 70's taken with the complicity of set and costume designer Jean-Louis Badet since 1988. Fascinated by the frictions and resonances between high and low entertainment, his performances are often inspired by popular forms like cabaret, music-hall, musicals and burlesque. His manner of fabricating unidentified performance objects, mixing dance, music, song, text and video has become his signature. At the same time, his passion for real time composition has led him to collaborate with various dancers. Renowned for his teaching, he travels around the world. In 2008, he received the SACD Choreography Prize for all his work (Society of Dramatic Authors Composers).

Mainstream

27 April | Friday | 18:30 | dance performance | 45 min |Red hall | Tickets: 8 BGN

Mainstream deals with the almost invisible, subconscious obsession of man with the inertia in which life falls. Where is the totality of our existence, where is our true, unaltered nature? Sometimes it appears for a moment, only to disappear again...

In her debut as a choreographer, Marion Darova combines theatrical expressivity and contemporary dance techniques. Actors Boris Georgiev and Hristo Ushev, together with dancer Ina Georgieva, grotesquely recreate, using grimaces, gestures and dance, some clichés imposed by contemporary mainstream culture as a pattern оf behaviour. The performance was first shown at Trizavisim 2016, the platform stimulating the creation of contemporary dance productions, an initiative of the Guild of Contemporary Performing Arts at the Union of Bulgarian Actors and A25 Culture Foundation.

Marion Darova
has graduated in Philosophy from Sofia University. A couple of years later she studied stage directing at the National Academy of Theatre and Film Arts. In 2015, she completed Derida Dance Center's one-year educational programme Dance Port Derida. During her studies, she worked with choreographers such as Norman Douglas (UK) and Sidra Bell (USA). Marion Darova has performed in Derida Dance Center's and Derida Company's productions "Silent Weapon" (nominated for the IKAR 2015 award), "Zen play", "Sinner" (IKAR 2017 award). Her debut performance "Mainstream" participated in the 2017 Water Festival of Contemporary Art in Burgas. Her most recent choreography work, "Trauma" (2017), features some participants in the 2016 Dance Port Derida programme. In both performances she partners with the famous composer of electronic music Ivan Shopov who authored the sound design.

How to Make a Festival with €1 000 and with €1 000 000

28 April | Saturday | 11:00 – 14:00 | performative discussion | in English | Red hall | Free entrance

Following their extensive experience in organizing art festivals in various conditions and reflecting upon it, Biljana Tanurovska-Kjulavkovski and Ivana Vaseva have developed a playful way to explore and discuss festivals' function and structure. They try to ponder and speculate on festivals as a field of formulating new working protocols, relations and bonds, new concepts, new economy and economic relations.

Participants of the Sofia edition of the format will be local festival directors in different art fields. In a public performance/game they will have to propose different approaches in organizing a festival with 1 000 Euros and with 1 000 000 Euros. Their proposals will be discussed by active art critics. Thus the performance/game will scrutinize different points of view on festivals as cultural phenomenon. They will be reflected as a space where new social capital can be created as well as public cultural values. At the end, the audience will vote for "the best festival". The format has been successfully presented at forums such as ImpulsTanz Festival – Vienna, Co-Festival Ljubljana, the first biennale for contemporary dance of East Europe in Bucharest 2016 a.o.

Biljana Tanurovska-Kjulavkovski is a cultural worker operating in the field of contemporary arts.

Impossibility in Its Purest Form

30 April | Monday | 17:00 | fragments in motion | 40 min | Red hall | Tickets: 8 BGN

"Impossibility in its purest form | Fragments in Motion" examines impossibility as a form of hope, striving, desire and, at the same time, as weakness, vulnerability, destructiveness, impotence, unfeasibility. Fragments exist in timelessness, in an incessant feeling of déjà-vu. Dancers' bodies are joined in structures, look for identity, build up perspectives and paint the space.

No shuttering! Where am I? When am I? In whom am I? Why am I? Are. Be. You are… Watch! Don't sleep. Die. Pose. Spill out! Curse! Unlock! Engender!! Create yourself – fit for swallowing… Requisite.

Trans-European Debates on the European Parliament (TEDEP) presents:
Fake News: The Questions Facing the European Union

22 April | Sunday | 12:00 | lecture and debate | bg | Burgas | Free entrance

In June 2017, the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling on the Commission to thoroughly analyze the current situation and legal framework on fake news and examine the possibility of legislative intervention to limit the distribution of fake content. The Commission has confirmed that this is its priority and has included the initiative for fighting fake news initiative in its 2018 work programme.

Meanwhile, Germany has passed a law under which social networks will be penalized if they do not remove content like fake news or hate speech in time. Germany has thus begun legislative action by declaring that the responsibility for spreading fake news rests entirely on online platforms. According to the law, social networks will have a total of 24 hours to erase and block acute criminal content and seven days for lighter cases and will have to report all cases to the government. If this does not happen, the companies may be fined up to 50 million euros and the directors of the companies in Germany – up to 5 million euros.

Should the European Commission adopt the German model and look for accountability for the spread of fake news in social networks primarily? Students from The Burgas Debate Club will try to find answer this question in an argumented debate.
