No shuttering! Where am I? When am I? In whom am I? Why am I? Are. Be. You are… Watch! Don’t sleep. Die. Pose. Spill out! Curse! Unlock! Engender!! Create yourself – fit for swallowing… Requisite.

“Impossibility in its purest form | Fragments in Motion” examines the impossibility as a form of hope, striving, desire and, at the same time, as weakness, vulnerability, destructiveness, impotence, unfeasibility. Fragments exist in timelessness, in an incessant feeling of déjà-vu. Dancers’ bodies are joined in structures, look for identity, build up perspectives and paint the space.

Stefaniya Georgieva is a Sofia-based dancer and choreographer. In 2011, she graduated in Puppet Theatre from the National Academy of Theatre and Film Arts; with a group of actors she created Atom Theatre and has since worked in the area of contemporary dance. She has co-organized projects such as ATOM Choreography Series#1 and 2, 451 and 243 square meters Independent and has participated in the making of several creative spaces for independent artists in Sofia. Her work as a choreographer includes six dance pieces presented at stages, spaces and festivals in Bulgaria and abroad. She actively works with Jung In Lee from South Korea with whom she has realized a number of international projects. She participates in artist residences and training sessions and teaches dance whenever she has time to do so. In 2017, she led a class at Guildford School of Acting: GSA, UK and Vitruvian Thing in Thessaloniki. She gets inspiration from motion as design in space, collective organism as experience and site-specific body as approach.
