Active Communities for Development Alternatives

The Start of the Theater Season with AGORA

Monday, 07 November 2011

The rehearsals of theater "MIM ART" at "Tishina" Association entered their final stage in the process of preparation for the "Purification" performance. The young actors with impaired hearing performing in "Purification" interpreted the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and more specifically goal 7 - Ensure Environmental Sustainability.

The Man and Nature have entered a new phase in their relationship - to fight for existence. This situation provoked the young actors to position the conflict on the theatre stage. "Purification" is a pantomime and dance performance, including the following few etudes - starting with the act of Creation going through the nature challenges and ending with the aerosol deodorants in our handbags.

"Purification" will be an exceptional experience both for the actors and the audience as the performance will be staged in various places generally difficult to reach in Sofia. The performance will be staged on 5 different places in the regions of Vrabnitca, Vitosha, Ovcha kupel and Oborishte.
