ARTeFACT - performance by Derida Dance


ARTeFACT- new production of Derida Dance

ARTeFACT is a multimedia dance performance focusing on the persuit of new identity that overcomes social and cultural boundaries. Such processes often accompany the modern nomad-artist in his/her search for opportunities for being a creator and not a product  in the globalized world. The action develops through interaction between visual medium, sound and body, which allows focusing on different stages and on formation of individual point of view.
The concept and choreography are created by Jivko Jelyazkov who joins efforts in this experimental study with the dancer Petia Mukova, visual artist Albena Baeva and prolific musician Ivan Shopov also known as Cooh and Balkansky.

The performance was selected for the last call of the European Dance Festival , Limassol , Cyprus.  ARTeFACT is the only Bulgarian performance that took part in this prestigious event. http://issuu.com/derida/docs/programme_european__demo_1_
