Metheor is an art collective, working with stage, visual, textual artistic and critical forms, developing their radical poetics. The central figures of Metheor during its ten-year history are the playwright and director Ani Vaseva, the philosopher Boyan Manchev and the actor Leonid Yovchev. Metheor's projects include 15 written and staged theatre plays and performances, which toured internationally, realised in Sofia, Vienna, Plovdiv, Berlin, Porto, Leipzig etc. They are defined by the group and the interpreters of their work as "theatre of disorganization", "inhuman theatre" and "theatre oratorio" and are based on a strong idea of theater. Each performance of Metheor seeks to invent a unique form based on experimental work with text and productive critique of theatrical techniques.
