THE SPACE IN BETWEEN is a completely author’s dance project, realized and managed by the choreographer Iskra Ivanova and the cultural studies’ BA Svetlozara Hristova. The performance is a collaborative work, based on improvisation and interaction with the audience. THE SPACE IN BETWEEN explores the theme of communication between us in the context of contemporary consumer society, threatening to perceive the human being mainly through its body aspects. The artists’ quest in the performance is oriented towards a rediscovery of the body in its unattainable and mysterious nature, as a complex supraliminal system, entering various kinds of interaction with the World and the Other.

Gold is often used as a metaphor for the visionary andparadisiean state, while wings denote unlimited ability to travelbetween realms, or else divine kindness and protectiveness.

Stanislav Grof, Books of the Dead

A pure speculation about a state unlike anything we can experience in this life, but which people have tried to describe as best they can with the language they have.

Life meets death once in a while. And, all of a sudden people start to think a little bit more about what is there to come. Some say we all need to believe that this is not all. Others hope to relax in something called nothing. Sooner or later we all are going to leave the physical existence, so what will the future bring?

TEST_a_MENTAL isa performative view on life and death, on patterns specific to the collective imaginary: the controversial problematic of afterlife, the tension between the fear of death and the hope of being immortal, the body-soul relationship. The result is a creation which speaks of all these within a relaxed way, but also as subtle introspection, veiled by the avoidance of any tragedy.

Project produced with the support of the Gabriela Tudor Foundation, Bucharest

The miserable Thing proposes unfinished events, which intends to trigger the audience imagination and (dis)place the audience in other possible forms of engagement. Composed of shifts and strong cuts the piece researches how the body can allow itself to change abruptly the whole space by shifting the state of the mind through movement quality and time. Deconstructing linearity and giving the possibility to access different ways to deal with perception and meaning, space and time.

This piece comes to expose a practice of living bodies in relation with living bodies; giving importance and bringing attention to the notion of the performativity of those bodies.
