10. festival edition reverses the rules of the game
The 10th, Romantic edition of the International festival for contemporary dance and performance, “Antistatic”, will take place in Sofia from the 12th to the 20th May. At first glance, there is not much in common between romance and contemporary art. However, in our world, where even the intimate relationships are often looked upon as material goods, and violence is part of everyday life, the rules of the game are reversed. Contemporary art is quick to detect these changes and is eager to comment on them. What “Antistatic” finds romantic is that it has been present for 10 years now and remains in a devoted, monogamous relationship with the contemporary dance and performance, despite the difficulties and underwater currents. This is why in 2017 it takes a step in this direction and offers an emotionally-electrifying programme for the body, the mind and the heart.
