    When going shopping we often pass by the nice small boutique Paradise Garage, trying a beautiful and original dress with the trade mark VЯRA. We asked and found out that beihnd that mark is the same woman Viara Borislavova that is connected to different fashion events, especially these of Neli Miteva in the showroom of 22 Ivan Assen Str. Now is the time to meet Viara eyes-to-eyes – we found her at her workshop and talked about her new collection, about the streets of Paris and the big wondering when standing infront of the wardrobe.
  • Spirit a la Cappone

    You can enjoy a new theatrical premiere in the beginning of the New Year. This time Plovdiv actors will play at a unusual scene - the cultural center Trakart. It is not accidental. The director keep a lot of things in secret. He is Leonard Cappone, many years director of Plovdiv Puppet Theater, who people know from his original productions for children and not only.

    Christin Sharkov is an immodestly young man, but he is self-confidence enough to make his professional debut with a spectacular provocation, deeply diving into moral problems. He is going to graduate as a theatrical director in National Academy for Theatrical and Film Arts. Being a student, he has been working in some university projects and being an assistant of Yavor Gardevs last works. For 3 months he is rehearsing with the company of Varna Drama Theatre the play Macbeth by Heiner Muler and is thinking of concepts good and evil, without teaching us.

    We know Desislava Shpatova as one of the most attractive, sensible and innovative young Bulgarian theatre directors. We liked very much 4:48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane, A Severed Head by Iris Murdoch and Flying by Olga Muhina. That theatre season Desislava surprised us with her next theatrical attempt – her own dramatization by Bergman Scenes from a Family Life or the Art of Sweeping the Dirt under the Carpet, played in the Drama theatre of Pazardzik.
  • Meeting Anastasia

    Anastasia Ingilizova is from those actresses who make us go to the theatre hall for every spectacle. Because in only one glance she can show more of her character in the play than with 5 monologues. The other reason is that it is exciting to watch her even when she plays a secondary character and also because she is interesting both in comic and dramatic roles. We have wanted to meet her for a long time now and here is the perfect occasion – Instincts, the first premiere in Theatre 199 for the season, where Anastasia plays not only one but whole three roles.

    Do you like to go to the opera? Do you think that this is really old-fashioned? At least operetta, musical or ballet… ? I think myself, that the next orders will excite your curiosity just to see what the new season of State Opera Stara Zagora will offer. The principal Vesselin Stoykov is creative young professionalist, who wishes to attract more of the young audience in the halls of the opera.

    Rumen Barosov is well spoken and seemingly calm but he can't hide his enthusiasm – the Sofia: Poetics festival, organized by himself and colleague Yasen Atanasov is close at hand. And it is a thing to be excited about indeed – eight years after the first Bulgarian festival combining urban poetry and modern music comes its second incarnation. And it shapes up to be quite good – 32 poets, 15 bands and DJs, 3 dance miniatures and one whole evening of art improvisation, on 21 September, under the stars and right next to the water lillies lake.

    21 August 2008

    Andrzej Saramonowicz is known around the world as the author of the theater play Testosteron but he is actually the mainman behind some of the most popular Polish movies to come out lately – all of them humorous urban tales of war of the sexes, a struggle with ni actual winner. The cinema version of Testosteron and his latest hit Lejdis are already on their way to Varna for the Love is Folly festival. And although Andrzej won't come to present the movies himself, he was kind enough to explain all about machos, theatre and football in an exclusive interview for Programata.

    Dr. House is going to a rally. Take it easy, the freak from the famous tv series had not thrown away his walking stick and his caustic remarks on the speedway. It's only Daniel Tsochev who doubles him in Bulgarian language and who has found a more extreme way of expressing his actor's talent. He is the narrator in the new 3D movie NASCAR.
