07.12.2013


For three weeks Maurizio, Sara and Jessica, from the Italian Dance Company Colaps rehearsed and elaborated their dance project called Medeamaterial. The extravaganza is interesting and unusual interpretation of the ancient myth of Medea.

"In this project, we tell about the relationship of each person with his supposed to be, but actually foreign body, as useless object, which is discarded after it becomes unusable”. Maurizio Mauro explained about their unorthodox concept.

This Saturday, December 7, in Derida Dance Center, at 19.30 (bulv. Slivnitsa 245) dance artists from Colaps will present their project to the audience in its work variation. Admission is free!

Artists from Colaps, Italy, have focused on the means of Dance Theater. They come from Torino, where they specialize in Performing Arts. Being dance artists who have participated in many performances, they decided, in 2010, to join their efforts and turn their ideas into reality on stage.
