News and useful information about Varna, Bulgaria
If you happen to be in the city of Varna at the Black sea coast in June, do not miss one of Bulgaria`s top cultural events, The 19th Intrenational theatre festival Varna Summer.
For British art devotees, the festival prepares a selection of British dance films and 3D video installation exhibitions from June 4 2011.
Billy Cowie, a Scottish choreographer and director, will present his 3D video installation Stereoscopic Trilogy, a sequence of three installations, to be displayed in Varna Archaelogical Museum (41 Maria-Luiza Blvdr.). Cowie is in Bulgaria at the invitation of British Council. The works can be seen on Saturday, June 4 at 4 pm and on Sunday, June 5, at 7 pm.
Stereoscopic Trilogy consists of three installations In the Flesh, The Revery Alone and Tango de Soledad.
British dance films can be seen as part of the Forward Motion project. It is a collection of outstanding British screen dance works curated by experts into three programmes.
