Neon is a project under which several products are generated – a lecture, a performance, dance trainings with different social groups and a burlesque performance. Alexander Georgiev – Atse, Irena Tsvetanova and Zhana Pencheva generate and articulate choreographic matter around the protest subject, the Burlesque and their functions in society. The Burlesque performance Neon is the ultimate point if their journey. This is a stage performance, which suggests a new perspective to the celebrating/protesting body, which could be watched through the prism of the Burlesque, which in its essence deals with flirtation, opposition, sarcasm, grotesque and sex.
