Untold Told 3 - 8 October 2019
"Untold Told - Travelling Stage" is a two-year project which explores violence in society. The 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.
3 - 8 October 2019
The project team members will share with you their fears and hopes on the way of the nonviolence struggle through the book series
Bedtime stories of Nonviolence
for grown up big brothers
and their fathers.
And don't forget to buy a ticket for the recently launched bus line "The Hot Spots of Plovdiv" - the number of seats is limited, and the opportunity for you to become part of the struggle for Nonviolence is HERE and NOW.
More details about the programme and the spots where the events will take place in this period will be announced later.
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.
This is a project by the University Theatre of the New Bulgarian University.
