4. Bulgarian Dance Platform//17. ANTISTATIC: one two

Christian Bakalov, Bulgaria

There are two shows on 19 May: from 15.00 and from 19.00. You select the time of the show when buying the ticket.

one two is a relativistic ontology of human togetherness presented through dance movements under immersive conditions. In this transformative experience, five performers in a state of altered consciousness and physical trance induced by holotropic breathing, intertwine their movements in a completely dark space. The performance unfolds under the observation of 40 spectators equipped with night vision cameras that also record the whole performance-experience.

After studying at the National Ballet School of Sofia and at The Young Ballet of France, Christian started working for Robert Wilson, Jérôme Bel and Florentina Holzinger, amongst others. His artistic journey ended up in close collaborations with Jan Fabre, Miet Warlop and Ivo Dimchev. In 2013, he began developing his first immersive performative installation, BRIGHT, in which the audience plays the main role.  Blurring the boundaries between performative action and installation, Christian develops a series of immersive methods which introduce the audience to a parallel universe, individually engaging their different senses and inviting them to reconsider the audience—art object—performer relationship.
