The Small Theatre from the End of the World...Opus I (14 September 2018)

After the performances in June at the Ancient Bath Center for Contemporary Art the artists will present "The Small Theater from the End of the World ... Opus I", on September 14, 2018, on the stage of Plovdiv Drama Theater (Zoom Stage), at 19.00, with free entrance!

Thus were born: the Old woman at the door, the Young Woman at the bus stop, the Monkey-Mole with the luminous eyes, the Administrator, the Small Appariteur, the Banker, the Sandwich-Man, who-looks-the-TV. In this Work in Progress, other beings are in gestation ... like, the Guardian-of-the-land-wave and its double, the Boutiquier, the Transporter-of-bus, the Porter-of-bales ...

Laboratory for spectators

Outside this big box, spectators observe and discover that this this box could therefore be a kind of allegory of the representation of the world. But they soon learn they can influence it. Spectators become actors - puppeteers: they can manage, experiment and participate in the process ...
