Medea - Exhibition and Concert 2018
"Medea", a project by the modern theatre association Legal Art Centre, is focusing on one of art’s most familiar plots – the plot from the eponymous drama by Euripides– and is seeking a modern interpretation of the human condition as presented by the play – the right to life, the process of choosing, the nature of love and the power of vengeance.
Apart from its focus on art, the project carries a strong social dimension too. It has brought about the collaboration of established personalities from the world of theatre, children from various ethnicities in Plovdiv – Roma, Turks, Jews, Armenian and Bulgarian – and also university students from the New Bulgarian University, interns and trainees in various humanitarian and creative fields.
Art trainings June - July 2018, Exhibition 19-28 June 2018
The project’s activities include art trainings and sessions (18 - 22 June is the first one, there are several in June-July) as well as children’s drawing competition and a subsequent exhibition (19 - 28 June, Central Square, Opening at the Small Basilica on 23 June) called "Deus ex machina or what is an ancient theatre?".
Concert September - October 2018
A concert for musically gifted children from various ethnic groups (Roma, Turkish, Armenian, Jewish) in the city will be launched September - October 2018.
