Eight residencies of Bulgarian artists happen in Derida Dance Center in 2015


In 2015 Derida Dance Center hosts eight Bulgarian residency teams working in the field of contemporary dance and performance. This spring the center opened doors to the production Balkan Dance Reality Show - an international project of Brainstore Project Foundation, completed together with artists from Croatia and Germany.

Parallel to that, the three teams selected as winners of the 6th edition of Trizavisim Project of the Guild for Contemporary Performing Arts and A25 Foundation also produced and performed their works in the space of Derida Dance Center. These were the projects of Petya Mukova ("Graviton"), Violeta Vitanova ("3V") and Philip Milanov ("Distance"). Within May Mihael Griveva did the rehearsals for her new performance "Slipstream".

At the moment Derida Dance Center residency program continues with Creative Box Association residency. Their dance performance "Killer" will be presented in the center on June 27th.

In autumn we're planning two more Bulgarian residencies - Stephanie Handjiiska's debute project "TheTimeStopper" and Garage Collective Project called "Neon".

Apart from the Bulgarian artists, Derida Dance Center will provide part of its space to foreign choreographers and performers. For a second year in a roll we will host the American choreographer Sidra Bell whose visit is supported by Trust for Mutual Understanding. Other artists will also be guests and perform their projects.

Derida Dance Center Residency Program is among the organization’s main instruments that help us realize our mission for providing opportunities for development of contemporary dance in Bulgaria. In 2014 it was presented to experts of the European Commission and recognized as a best practice for artistic exchange in Europe: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1438476096446541&set=a.1393840757576742.1073741828.100008524930767&type=1&__mref=message_bubble
