  • A heart at the right place with Elena Dimitrova

    6 February 2020

    The actress just got an Ikar nomination for her role at Kak e - a Beckett inspired performance at Sfumato Theatre. We sit with her to talk about where her heart is, what places are her favourite in the city, and what kind of theatre opens up emotional spaces inside her.
  • The things of life: Tsveta Doycheva

    16 January 2020

    She's someone who used to take 30 minutes to choose her dinner from the menu, but today she's entirely in the other direction. After graduating Interior design, she decided to at least try for her childhood dream of becoming an actress - and got accepted in the academy. After that, she gradually became more and more interested in the physicallity of movement, so she again decided to at least try becoming a dancer. We're meeting her for an interview right before her debut as a choreographer - in Hang in There.
  • The things of life: Vaiva Grainytė

    She's a writer, but this word doesn't contain everything. Vaiva jumps between genres, for example with her book of diaries-essays; she writes poetry and is a playwright with a curiosity for the entire process.
  • The things from the scene: Marieta Golomehova

    13 November 2019

    In her over 15-year tandem with director Veselka Kuncheva, she gives life to puppets, decor and images in award-winning performances. If you've watched them, you know how freely this scenographer experiments with the images, materials and messages in her work. That's enough reason to look for her for a conversation, but we're also curious about her new work - the production of The Last Man, based on George Orwell's  1984 in Azaryan Theatre on November 20. In an interview, we talk with Marieta about the benefits of reversal, the resistance to lessons, and the need to express what you have accumulated.

    "During a play my anxiety doesn't show, thank God - otherwise what am I doing on stage at all?!", she tells us when we repeat the common opinion - that she looks super confident and just blossoms under the theater spotlight. To believe us, you only need to watch for example The Same Day or Actors vs Poets performed in one of the small halls of Sfumato, to see how easily Nadya cuts the already short distance between herself and the audience and how she boldly improvises.
  • The center of the dance: Kaori Ito

    1 August 2019

    Her most important goal is to make the invisible visible through dance. Kaori Ito, who was born in Japan but lives in Paris, shows feelings on stage, tells personal stories and always talks straight.
  • Nice to meet you, Iva Todorova!

    18 July 2019

    When she sits down to write Nice to meet you, Iva!, she probably doesn't realize that she's already going towards two Ikar prizes (for leading female role and playwright) and a Golden Kukerikon (for a solo theatrical performance).
  • The things of life: Martina Apostolova

    11 April 2019

    In another scenario we would have talked to Martina after her workout, but today we meet her between two rehearsals. After 15 years of seriously playing football, she realizes she feels best not on the field, but on the stage. So she finds herself in the class of Tsvetana Maneva.

    Not long ago he found out that he won the prestigious Askeer prise for a rising star in the Karlo Gocci's fairytale King deer in the Azaryan theatre in Sofia. He talks about the roles that made him fall in love with acting, the things he has been trough his acting career and different projects he's most proud of.
  • The things of life: Alexandrina Pendatchanska

    29 March 2018

    When she first appeared on stage to sing Violetta's aria from Verdi's Traviata, she did not even know how to bow. Only a year later she was already Lucia di Lammermoor in Bilbao, and for the next 30 years her voice was heard in the largest operas from Vienna, Berlin, Turin and Monte Carlo to Moscow, New York, Washington, Tel Aviv and Paris (where she lives with her daughters most of the time).

    Humans are designed for movement, dancing is in our nature, but if you have any doubts that your anatomy is capable of this, you can easily check - just answer with "yes" to "can I do this?" and allow yourselves to connect with your inner dancers.

    When he sits in the Satirical Theater to see how his play is set, the Spanish playwright Juan Mayorga says that this Hamelin is one of the best he has ever seen. For the director Alexandra Petrova, this is a great compliment, but not the only one - with this play she wins Icarus prize for a debut in 2017. We didn't know much more before meeting her personally but now we see that she had put a lot of effort into her work, because Alexandra has also gained experience from theater schools in Madrid and Amsterdam, and even managed to study psychology.

    "I'm a nomad," says Mila, adding that she speaks literally but also figuratively. Well, it seems that stagnation is something really uncommon in her life. Since taking Icarus for her debut in Palaveev's Sisters in 2016, the profession of an actress has often heightened it in extremes - from the role of a "sweet bear provocateur" in the Avenue Q to American movie star in Vlado Penev's Class which has a premiere on Apolonia festival.

    We're meeting just after he had taken Askeer for Peter Shaffer's Equus in the Youth Theater. This is not his first directing award - Stayko has a Icarus prize for his debut Puheniyat and a diploma from the Ministry of Culture for his artistic achievements but also dozens of exchanged messages and talks with strangers who sometimes have not understood something, and sometimes just want to say "thank you".
