    Director Boyko Iliev: Without soul the stage is nothing

    The 30th anniversary since the creation of Dialogue, the first private theatre in Bulgaria's modern history, was marked with the production Antichrist. Some 20 other attempts to start private theatre companies have failed spectacularly over the years. Today, the concept of an argumentative, even contrarian style of making theatre with unique aesthetics is being kept alive by New Theatre - NDK, says director Boyko Iliev in an interview with EUROPOST.

    Dimiter Marinov: Success is part of my development

    Each of my colleagues is golden per se. No matter if he was a success or not, if he was promoted or not, it does not matter. In their early age, many actors cannot distinguish themselves, but later they work miracles, and vice versa - some work miracles when young and then go into oblivion or get lost forever, says actor Dimiter Marinov in an interview to Europost.

  • Benoit Jacquot: I am devoted to books

    Benoit Jacquot: I am devoted to books

    If I have to sum up my life in a synopsis for a film, I would start from a child who is an awful, even disastrous pupil. He later becomes a young man who quits school and prefers going to cinema theatres and watching films instead. But as he has read a lot, he is open to different challenges, facing life in a free and open manner and consequently getting into all kinds of trouble - in love, politics, social conflicts, film director Benoit Jacquot says in an interview to Europost.

  • Nikolai Kolyada: Theatre is math

    Nikolai Kolyada: Theatre is math

    All I have to do is walk out on the street and see someone, and I immediately know where they are headed, how much money they have in their wallet, what kind of furniture is in their home. What is a playwright if not a keen observer? I just need to watch, pay attention. I love ordinary people. I love writing about them because the affection for the humiliated and the downtrodden has always been the lifeblood of our literature, says world-renowned playwright Nikolai Kolyada in an interview to Europost.

    There is no life on Mt Everest

    For many years I was a lone­ly long-dis­tance run­ner com­pet­ing pre­dom­i­nant­ly with myself. Because, while keep­ing your body fit for the art of pan­to­mime, your clos­est and only friend is lon­el­i­ness in the­a­tre audi­to­ri­um.
