State of EmergencyAttention: from April 20th to 30th Antistatic, the International Festival for Contemporary Dance and Performance declares
a “state of emergency” in Sofia, 11th degree, in line with the number of festival editions so far.
The definition of “state of emergency” imposed by the world we live in is threat, fear, terrorism and control. But in Antistatic’s dimension the norms imposed upon ourselves
immediately cease to apply. For us “state of emergency” means that we are building a territory where we displace the rules and free more space for contemporary art.
We also earmark a new space to enable the happening of Bulgarian Dance Platform, the first one for the festival. Thus, “keep calm and dance on”!
It will be WOW, we will speak dance, it will be a romantic and demilitarizing state of emergency.
*After ten years of antistaticity we will now be counting by # the number of every performance in the festival’s programme to mark the accumulation in its history.
