“Orașul vorbește”: Galina Borissova and George Plesca, between effort, space and form

Double nominee for the Ikar Prize for Performance, gold medalist at the Serbian Solo Competition, with over 50 stage projects (from Sweden to the USA and everything in between), the second teacher at the Academy of Dance and Performance wants to train students in releasing excessive tension. Dance imagery, experimenting with different movement qualities and a lot of hard work. Тhe workshop offers basic body training that addresses anatomical functions in a context that promotes personal expression and full psycho-physical functioning as an integral part of total body mobilization. 

Galina Borissova is a dancer and choreographer whose work has a strong theatrical aspect. She first made a significant impression at the American Dance Festival’96 where she was participating in the International Choreographers Residency Program. In 1998 she received the first prize for her performance “A Never Ending Story” in Groningen/Holland at the International Choreographer’s competition. Galina is an author of the book “Dance Images and Artistic Preferences” published by New Bulgarian University.
She is an active blogger writing criticism and dance texts, you can read her blog here.

Between theory and practice, between vertical and horizontal, between mine and your attitude to personal expression, we will also concentrate on what it is like to be in a group, to what extent we insist on identifying or differentiating. Тhe workshop facilitates the understanding of diversity,
