Untold Told 2018

"Untold Told - Travelling Stage" is a two-year multidisciplinary project which explores violence in society. The project’s idea originated in the University Theatre of the New Bulgarian University and its realisation is led by the associate professor Vazkresiya Viharova.

The project includes the staging of "Untold Told" performances, worked out as documentary theatre, as well as a series of trainings, interactive sessions, urban space installations, discussions and therapeutic modules. The activities are aimed at various groups and communities and their violence-related issues, stimulating the groups' own involvement in creating alternative solutions.

Admission free.


The "Untold Told" performance, which took place on 30 April 2018 in the Zoom Zone of Plovdiv Drama Theatre as part of the project’s events, is a work by the associate professor Vazkresiya Viharova (director), Prof. Dessislava Boshnakova from the New Bulgarian University, and the actresses Diana Spasova, Dobriela Popova, Rositsa Gevrenova and Yana Grozdanova. The actor Alexey Kozhuharov appeared as a special guest.

In "Untold Told", what we normally think of as dramatic text is replaced by documentary materials - among them, interviews, eyewitness accounts and court records. The stories three women share with the director, Vazkresiya Viharova, were selected for the performance. The heroines’ prototypes are of different ages, occupy different positions and have different social statuses. They are united by their silence and the possibility of divulging what’s behind it in public. The mechanism of violence is examined through the actual stories: the situations in which it manifests itself, the issues it causes and the victims it produces.
