Derida Dance Center посреща новия сезон с по-добри условия за съвременната професионална танцова сцена

There are no translations available.

От тази есен артисти от сферата на съвременния танц и танцов театър от София, страната и чужбина, ще се радват на по-добри условия за представяне на своите проекти в Derida Dance Center. Благодарение на подкрепата на фондация „Америка за България“ танцовият център се сдоби с ново по-добро сценично осветително оборудване.

Новата техника ще предостави на артистите допълнителни възможности за представянето на техните проекти, а за публиката преживяването ще бъде по-интересно и сетивно. Освен новото сценично оборудване, Derida Dance Center се радва на нов интериор и цялостно подобрени битови условия за артистите и всички посетители на танцовия център. Програмата за любители се допълва с нови курсове като фламенко, джаз танц, бразилска самба и афро хаус. Съвременните танцови изпълнители, които участват в програма Dance PORT Derida, продължават да получават възможности за работа с чуждестранни техни колеги. В момента като част от Резидентската програма на Derida Dance Center, подкрепена от Столична програма „Култура“, гостуват артисти от Италия и Австрия, а по-късно през годината американският хореограф Чарлз Слендър ще работи три седмици с млади български танцьори.

Classes start on September 26th! There is no need for prior subscription, it happens in Derida Dance Center a little before the class.

In Flamenco classes you will learn corporal and zapateado techniques, created by Miguel Canas. The course has the aim of developing technical skills in the dancers. The corporal technique deals with the movement of the body in flamenco, using classical dance as a base. It deals with the body positions, flamenco arms and pirouette technique. Zapateado technique deals with the movements of the legs and feet. This technique develops the positions of the feet and the right posture of the dancer’s body and teaches how to stamp in various flamenco rhythms and tempos. Zapateado technique also improves the sense of rhythm in the dancer teaching him/her how to clap and thus contributes to developing the overall musicality.

Insructor: Stefan Nikolov

Stefan Nikolov is a multi-genre dancer and teacher. He has studies flamenco in the world’s oldest flamenco school “Amor de dios” in Madrid, Spain. There he participated in many TV programmes as a dancer. Apart from flamenco, he is actively involved in jazz dance and Irish dance.

Aerowaves Platform: "Home" by Marrafa vzw at World Theater in Sofia

AEROWAVES, supported by Creative Europe Program of EU, represented for Bulgaria by Derida Dance Center and World Theatre in Sofia present:

HOME - dance performance by  MARRAFA vzw – Brussels, Belgium

June 14th 2016, 19:00 h at Sfumato Theatre

How to become ‘home’? The idea can be paradoxical – home is solid in our memories, but its colours fade and we forget details over time. Our bodies adapt to new places, new rules – we thrive on curiosity. “Home” takes all these ideas and draws on the deep-rooted experiences of five dancers, creating a detailed, agile and rhythmic dance vocabulary driven by a pulsating, urgent soundscape composed by the choreographer. After “Abstand” which was shown at World Theatre in Sofia 2015, the Bulgarian audience has another chance to experience a new captivating dance piece by contemporary choreographer Luis Marrafa.
