• Straight to the stars: Mathieu Bitton

    31 March 2016

    photo Keil Lowres

    Photographer, art director, designer with a Grammy nomination, knight of the arts and letters in his country, France. He also works on soundtracks, directs movies, and photographs people from Mick Jagger to Lana del Rey. Today, we write emails with him because of his exposition with Lenny Kravitz - they both will show their photography. For the stories inside, for the best instant click on the streets of New York, and for the harsh, but needed advice from Quincy Jones, we talk through several time zones.
  • Breakfasts of champions

    2 March 2016

    It's Friday, 8:20 in the morning, and the door of G8 Cultural Centre is opening and closing every 30 seconds. We're here not for early cinema, but for the Sofia edition of Creative Mornings - a meeting that's happening around the globe. For the fifth time, in our city as well.
  • Every day, yoga

    25 February 2016

    Where is the place of yoga between the emails, the career and the everyday pulse of the city? Right here, in Santosha studio, so take a deep breath.
  • Snowkite: flying in winter

    11 February 2016

    Written by: Vera Gotseva Photography: Milena Tzoneva

    We talk with Atanas Rusev - a kitesurf instructor in summer, a snowkite enthusiast in winter.

    Atanas Rusev is one of the bravest men I ever knew – a man with no social mask, who has discovered that the true freedom is to follow yourself and to become one with the nature. Most of the people know him for his efforts to preserve the virginity of the Bulgarian Coral Beach; others have been trained in kitesurfing by him, and third had courage enough to step into unexplored caves on the bottom of the Earth with him.
    We will tell these stories some other time, but meanwhile Nasko lifts us up in the air with his snowkite, while the Vitosha plateau is still covered with snow.

  • Studio in a backpack: Kalin Nikolov

    11 February 2016

    He's composing music for theater - he has two Askeer Awards and two Ikar Awards behind his back, and for the last year he's composed for six productions. We meet with him to talk about all that and why his studio is the smallest in the world.
  • The drinks from life: Dragomir Ivanov

    28 January 2016

    For one of our most talented mixologist, the worst would be for us to like every cocktail that's on his mind - because it would mean he's not brave enough in his experimentation. Today, we sit with him and instead of tasting drinks, we have a few fast shots of stories - about his beginning as a barman, about his childhood memories and about a barbeque in Argentina.

    Dark maze, a man's voice shouting instructions, deafening music and glowing people with plastic guns - this is not the plot of some surreal dream but a game that we're wondering why we discover so late.
  • Salmon vs. Duck

    26 November 2015

    This is a serious battle but no worries - at the end both of them fall onto our plates. For lunch on Monday we're following two recipes taken from the Manchev vs. Shishkov cookbook and we discover not who's a better chef but how fun it is to cook and eat together.
  • The secret menu of Tsvetomir Nikolov

    26 November 2015

    He's been in the kitchen of more places he can remember, and recently he even got into a truck - he's the chef behind Street Chefs. We meet with Tsvetomir to talk about food and use it a bit like a time machine - the main topic is it's ability to make us cry, laugh, and fall in love.
  • Blek Celebration

    19 November 2015

    text Nikola Shahpazov, photos Sevda Semer

    It's noon on Sunday when we stop in Gorna Banya where the Blek Pine duo is showing us (and a hundred more people) their first two kinds of craft beer. Between "Cheers" and "One more, please" we find the time to discuss homemade snacks, Christmas ale with pine needles and how two people can work like two hudred.
  • Full Throttle

    Folding yourself in half to squeeze into a small car, so that you can crash into some dirty tires while holding a tiny steering wheel? We might be crazy but it's so much fun.
  • The things of life: Anna Simeonoff

    12 November 2015

    Thought, joke and aesthetics. When was the last time you saw a poster with those three on the streets of Sofia? They can all be like this, says Anna. Or at least she's sure that we have the artists to do them, when she starts the project Plakat Kombinat, together with Georgi Aleksandrov. It's not just a website where you can order a poster by a Bulgarian artist - it's also the first step of a few exhibitions. The last one, I love this movie, was in Rome, New York and Vienna, and now it's coming to Sofia. Before the opening, we sit with Anna to talk about her things of life.
  • For the letters with love: Chas LoveLetters

    5 November 2015

    Chas is a part of the graffiti crew LoveLetters and he loves letters since 1989. They seem to love them back and the result is on urban canvases around the world. Now he's coming to Bulgaria for Sprite Graffiti Academy and he'll teach our young graffiti artists the ABC of the art. Before that, we made a little online meeting with him and talked about it all in detail...
  • The things of life: Jose Gonzalez

    29 October 2015

    With only a few minutes of guitar and voice, he can melt anyone and anything. Now the situation is even more serious, because he's tuning in for longer and closer - the ticket is warm in our pocket ever since we found out about his concert in Studio Orfey, Noember 9. Before that, we sit with him and listen about the things from his life... Let's start from the beginning?
  • From the heads to the walls

    15 October 2015

    They say they create surfaces. But they're not carpenters, sculpturers or architects - Elena Nikolova, Iskren Mitev and Yassen Russev make whiteboard paint. They call it Escreo.
  • Merve Bedir: to the city with love

    10 September 2015

    Merve Bedir is an architect from Ankara, and this year she's the curator of One Architecture Week, which will happen between the 18 and 27 of September in Plovdiv with the theme of Un-common river. We met Marve to ask how a garden can destroy borders, what should we tell ourselves every day to change the city, and what is one thing in Sofia that she's never seen before.
  • The things of life: Alissa Atanassova

    10 September 2015

    We met her for an hour between two repetinions, which was just enough to find out a few things. Alissa is an actress (third generation in her family), teaches theather to teenagers and has many other roles - we're expecting to see three of them in premiere this season. Today we sit with her and listen to her stories for the important things in life.
