CRAVE [To feel a very strong desire for something]
a dance performance, part of Balkan Dance Project – Bulgaria 2019
The production Balkan Dance project called "CRAVE" is created in collaboration with Bulgarian artists
and dance organisations with the additional support by the European Capital of Culture Plovdiv 2019.
Few thoughts about the show from the choreographer Stefaniya Georgieva:
Through movement, dance, Bulgarian authentic music, sensory and intimate work, we will explore the nature
of craving, the cycle of desire, the eruption of wildlife and the suffering that comes from all this. Craving is what
never stops, never ends, because if it is satisfied, saturated, it has the ability to become the weapon of our own destruction. The satisfied craving is a loss of meaning, void, its opposite. Dance performance for the insatiable "hunger" that can never be quenched; about desire and its many forms, the crave to achieve, the need to earn,
to be the first, to know, to be able to crush, to break, possess, to abuse, to say NO. For the attention that I'm so craving for.
