The Egyptian dancer and choreographer islam Elnebishy invited local dancers and performers in Sofia (both professionals and ones without experience) to participate in the Matter of Perspective project, which was developed in two phases at the end of September and the beginning of October during his residency at Radar Sofia under the “Distance and Resistance” curatorial line with the support of HOD and Goethe Institute – Bulgaria.
ACT Festival selected the presentation to take part in its parallel programme in 2022.
We have been researching the relationship between emotions, images and the body.
Investigating how we can move from an external image, versus an internal emotion, and the full range in between and seeing what kind of physicality that brings to the body.
While questioning what’s real and what’s fake, in this process and playing with both options.
Playing always with the difference between how things are experienced from inside versus how they are seen from the outside
Islam Elnebishy said.
The event and the residency have been funded by the National Culture Fund Bulgaria.
