About Us

 

ATOM THEATRE is a Bulgaria-based company working in the field of contemporary dance and site specific performance. The group was formed in 2011 and its main goal is to “dig” in the social, cultural and educational environment to study processes in society and relations between people and to implement them in the projects. The works of ATOM are strongly correlated with certain spaces, architecture, design, and history, as well as conventional stage performances. Since their formation, they’ve been driven by the passion to explore the limitless possibilities with movement and dance, the instinct to chase up personal choices, the thirst for freedom on stage, for contact and connection. ATOM has implemented or taken part in a number of national and international cultural projects. In 2016, АТОМ theatre performed and took part in various platforms in Bulgaria, South Korea, Austria, Germany, Macedonia, Greece, Czech Republic, Montenegro, Romania, France, Serbia. The Group maintains cooperation with Lili Jung In Lee – choreographer, dancer, teacher, Executive committee / The modern dance promotion of Korea Seoul International Choreography Festival from South Korea, who have collaborated with ATOM theatre for “Helga_Underground” project’2016, ATOM Choreographic Series#1,2 and numerous dance projects (2016-2018). Between 2015 and 2017, АТОМ Theatre and several artistic organizations cooperated to establish Creative Hub HOUSE – a residential artistic center in Sofia where ATOM Theatre actively carries out cultural activities.

The main mission of ATOM theatre company is to keep growing and inspiring others to create a new image of the Bulgarian contemporary dance scene; to broaden the Bulgarian borders of communication and exchange with other countries around the world; to focus on artistic exchange, education, and collaboration with international young choreographers, teachers, and dancers.
