The Double Bass

The Double Bass

Original title: Der Kontrabas

Theatre play
By Patrick Süskind
Director: Plamen Markov
Monospectacle of Valentin Ganev
The one-man show “The Double Bass” is one of unusually long life. It was staged in 2000 and over the years the performance of Valentin Ganev, one of the leading actors of the National Theatre, has won him a number of theatre awards in Bulgaria and has travelled to more than 15 festivals in Europe and USA.

It is based on the play by the German writer Patrick Süskind, which is in fact his literary debut followed by the bestsellers - “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer,” “The Pigeon,” “On Love and Death” and others.
“Süskind’s work is a score for a soloist and a double bass, a man and an instrument, an actor and an object. Valentin Ganev “plays out” that complex part with unexpected nuances and overtones.” (Kapital Weekly).
Union of Bulgarian Actors’ 2001 IKAR Award for best actor in a leading role and for best director; Askeer Award 2001for Valentin Ganev; First prize for best actor in a leading role and best director and second prize for set design at the National Festival of Small Theatre Forms in Vratsa, 2001; 2001 Blagoevgrad Theatre Festival’s award for best set design
