Our Last Pas de Deux (after Galina Borissova)
Date: 19 October, 15:00
Duration: 60 min.
Location: The Red House Centre for Culture and Debate
Address: 15 Ljuben Karavelov Str.
In the performance Our Last Pas de Deux Iva Sveshtarova and Willy Prager highlight specific features of the work of the “mutant” choreographer (as she calls herself) Galina Borissova, and appropriate and transform them. Is this theft or homage? Is it an objective portrait or a subjective interpretation? And how can a performance about a “living classic” be made without turning him/her into a museum piece? Or maybe such a performance reveals more about the creators?
Iva Svestarova and Willy Prager work in the field of contemporary dance and performance and are both part of the Бbrain Сstore Пproject – the creative concepts store. They are authors and organizers of many international projects. They are also co-founders of the Balkan educational program “Nomad Dance Academy” and of the International festival for contemporary dance and performance “Antistatic” in Sofia.
