• What we didn't know about... Mikhail Baryshnikov

    22 November 2018

    We know he's one of the best ballet dancers in the world, and that's why it's huge news that he arrives here with his mono spectacle Brodsky / Barishnikov in January. The tickets are going in a quick step, so let us say a few things about Mikhail, who first stands next to the ballet stand when he's 9 and says his career starts from Bulgaria after winning a gold medal at an international competition in Varna. Next is the globe - with a major leap to Canada, where he escapes the Soviet Union. Once he senses freedom, he begins to experiment with modern dance, establishes his own company in the States, becomes a choreographer, director, actor - all these faces we are showing you in four brief etudes now.

    12 musical performances enter the Ancient Theater (all starting at 21:00) to give us 12 more reasons to keep driving back and forth between Plovdiv and Sofia in the following month.

  • Alive Topography

    7 December 2017

    text Violeta Ivanova

    Imagine an exhibition of huge abstract paintings that are created right then and there. Now imagine an atmospheric music concert that is best experienced if you're seated, still and silent. Now combine the two things in one and the image in your head will be very close to what's coming to Dom na kinoto next Thursday - with Japanese artist Akiko Nakayama and E.U.E.R.P.I.'s ambient-drone music.
