The unique comedy show Garbage for Plums is among the most successful projects of the Pro Rodopi Art Centre, and has travelled many countries. It is based on a famous Bulgarian folk tale, which has been “translated” into the language of modern children and adult spectators. With original puppets, characters wearing the color of the Bulgarian national mentality come alive on stage – there’s no good and bad, just people of flesh and blood whom the creators of the show understand and love, even when criticizing their weaknesses.
The Pro Rodopi Art Centre was founded by Petar Todorov and Desislava Mincheva in 2004. Its productions have been presented in over 30 countries on 4 continents. Along with experimental physical theatre projects, PRAC produces high quality and innovative performances with puppets for children and family audiences too. Living and working away from the biggest Bulgarian cities, in the Rhodopes mountains, PRAC founders define their activities in the region as a mission. PRAC is the only Bulgarian member of Trans Europe Halles.
