This year a focus of Choreographic Series #3 is put on AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT in the sphere of contemporary dance. Parallel to the dance classes, practices by our guest mentors will be held with the participants. This way specific methods for audience engagement could be applied in a more interactive way.
 
In addition, a new module will be included in the Series – SPEED MEETINGS. The idea is to have an open event that all could apply for and provide an opportunity to another representative of the dance stage in Bulgaria to enlarge their network by meeting face to face with professionals from other parts of the world travel to Sofia to be part of ACS#3. Save the date September 11th – will give a hint soon of how to apply for the speed dating.

OUR HONORABLE GUEST MENTORS IN THE PROGRAMME WILL BE:
 
BRIDGET FISKE (Manchester Dance Consortium) As an artist Bridget strives to respond to underlying conditions of how we perceive, experience & cohabitate in the world: engaging with what is challenging & what is wonderful. 18 years in contemporary dance & interdisciplinary collaboration, in Australia, the UK, Europe and internationally, has reflected this philosophy and has defined responsiveness, embodied considerations, shared experience, discourse and rigor as central to her practice. 
 
SARAH HOLCMAN (Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance) is a dancer, arts manager, and independent curator and producer working primarily in contemporary dance and performance. She is currently the Director of Programs and International Relations at the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance in Tel Aviv and Advisor for Partnerships and Exchanges at Kelim Choreography Center.
 
LEADING CHOREOGRAPHERS:
 
Joseph Lau (Manchester Dance Consortium) is an independent artist in dance and theatre working as a performer, choreographer, and facilitator. Joseph’s choreographic work centers around three areas of investigation, these being: memory, design of the expressive body & of space and the political.
 
 
Shira Eviatar (Israel) is an independent artist in contemporary dance and choreographer based in Tel Aviv. In her practices she invites dancers to immigrate to what is familiar and known for them, to observe with a kind gaze at what lays in their body and mind, at what is taken for granted or comes naturally.
 
 
Stefaniya Georgieva (BG) – a co-founder and an artistic director of ATOM theatre. In her work, she is inspired of the base concept of the puppetry – many people who breathe as one move as one, think as one and see through the eyes of a lifeless object (puppet) with a desire to bring it to life. That concept of the collective body, motion, and mind is the base of her explorations.
 
Herb Johnson III aka JDot Tight Eyez (USA) – American Krump dancer and choreographer, graduated from Perpich Center for the Performing Arts high school in 2010 and studied 3 years at the Lundstrum Center for Arts in Minnesota. Johnson now teaches at the University of Minnesota as an Urban & Street dance instructor. He currently choreographs and performs solo and in groups with 612 Crew, DeadPool, and Mixtape. Professional work includes iLuminate from America’s Got Talent, choreographing G-Easy’s half-time show 2018, and NFL’s SuperBowl 52 half-time show 2018 with Justin Timberlake.
 
Iskra Ivanova (BG) – co-founder and art director of Moving Body Festival in Varna, choreographer,  performer, dance adviser, mover, time – stealer, and mother. She has graduated CHOREOGRAPHY in the Varna Free University and since then perfected her technique attending various dance workshops led by figures like Diego Agullo, Doris Uhlich, Philippe Saire, David Zambrano, Leslie Baker, Christian Bakalov, Galina Borissova, and many others.
