The Cicadas

The play ‘The Cicadas’ by Miroslav Hristov is among the three dramaturgical texts selected at the New Bulgarian Drama Festival 2017 in Shumen. In the spring of 2018 it was also selected by the platform for new drama ‘ProTex’ and the European network ‘Eurodram 2018’.

The plot is a kind of time machine that takes the viewer from one place to another. This is the story of a man and a woman, tied together for many reincarnations. During their meeting in an interim space - between life and death - their common past is revived. The play poses the question of whether the time for change is when the nature of love changes.

The director of the show is Alexandra Petrova (winner of IKAR 2017 for directing debut). Nadya Keranova, Georgi Gotsin are taking part. The scenography is entrusted to Boyana Bachvarova. The video artist is Gergana Lazarova, and the music is by Data Transporter/ Nino Gomes.

Performance dates at SKLAD (16 Ekzarh Yosif Str.) are: 22 April (premiere), 17 and 29 May, 6 and 14 June 2019. Ticket price: 12 BGN, reduced-price tickets for pupils, students, retired persons – 8 BGN. Start: 19:00.

The project is implemented by the Plus Association. More about the project check here.
