Theatredreams, Bulgaria Homo Ludens with Alexsander Iliev

HOMO LUDENS Allegorical Pantomime A man falls from the sky. As a child he founds the objects in the world around him. He doesn’t use the things by their function, the objects gain souls and become undirigible; the universe turns upside down. The play gains cosmic power and endegers not only the world order but also the human himself. After that the last breath of the man seems like the cry of the new born child. The game starts again.

The Inexistent Theatre, Romania Contrasts with Dana Cavaleru and Richard Bovnoczki

"A performance that would make Tom and Jerry jealous" Romania will be present at the annual New York International Fringe Festival with the award winning physical theatre production CONTRASTS, created and performed by actors Dana Cavaleru and Richard Bovnoczki, two of the finest actors in Bucharest, trained as part of Dan Puric's internationally renowned Passepartout Company. Their original approach to performance combines pantomime, dance and theatre assembled into an original stage vocabulary.

CONTRASTS tells the story of a man and a woman who wake up in the same bed and cannot remember where they have seen each other before. Using gestures, words, sounds or tap dance steps they create an ever-changing imaginary world. This high-octane show reveals, with great humour, the ever-present contrasts between men and women, in their everyday lives, in society and at home. "A performance that would make Tom and Jerry jealous" raved Academia Caţavencu, one of the most popular Romanian newspapers.

The show has already received two European awards: the 2009 Special Jury Award at the Faces without Masks Festival in Skopje (Macedonia), and the 2009 Audience Award at the "Solo Mime Festival" in Belgrade (Serbia).

The New York International Fringe Festival is the largest multi-arts festival in North America, with more than 200 companies from all over the world performing for 16 days in more than 20 venues.
