Salome

Salome




Dance performance
Choreography: Miroslav Jordanov
Music: Emilian Gatsov
Dancer: Miroslava Zahova
Salome was a Jewish queen who lived in 1 c. AD. She is often identified with the dancing woman from the New Testament whose seductive dance led to the death of John the Baptist.


The Christian tradition depicts her as an icon of dangerous female seductiveness. Her image doesn’t seize to intrigue the world of art throughout the centuries. It also captivates the attention of the choreographer and visual artist Miroslav Yordanov. His latest performances explore the potential of excess and the body as refuge of desire in iconic figures of cultural imagination. In Salome, the object of interest is the female character of Salome from the biblical parable to its contemporary interpretations. It is the third successful collaboration between Miroslav Yordanov and the emerging performer Miroslava Zahova who is one of the promising presences in the contemporary Bulgarian performing arts scene.
