A Simple Space (18 October)
A contemporary circus piece is coming from Australia to premiere on the Bulgarian stage as part of ONE DANCE WEEK 2019. A SIMPLE SPACE by Gravity & Other Myths is an extreme demonstration of strength and skills by acrobats that will fly over your heads. Hang on because it's all for real.
