Drawn is an interdisciplinary performance inspired by the separation of the society and the nostalgia of the unknown past.
The performance is based in four different rooms and the audience is free to explore every room.
Every room represents something:
This performance meets classical, contemporary, electronic, folklore and jazz music with contemporary dance and movements.

"Timing space" is a project which in a playful approach puts time as a mechanical thing into focus by relating counter-concepts of classical and electronical music. The performers attend a collaborative project of musical communication using movement through a room for creating altered sounds, different durations and changing distances.
Several microphones are placed in set spots in the performance rooms and allow the musicians to change from the acoustic surrounding in to a path of electronical signals. This separate tier of sound is reinforced by multichannel speakers at different spots, to create a room-in-room-experience. The musicians decide which sounds will be electronically transformed and amplified, what part of the co-musicians playing will be heard in which room and what remains purely acoustic. Through these possibilities the relation between natural and amplified sounds becomes part of the creation. One room remains free of all electronical reinforcement as an acoustic haven. In the end every room offers its own hearing experience and the audience is able to comprehend how a changing of position is influencing the perception.

move(ME-N)t is an audio-visual expirience which present the stories of different people who left their homeland. This stories are told in their mother language, because everyone of them has its unique melodic which is enough to understand the emotion of the story. This videos are shown in two different rooms at the same time, which brings the audience to move their position regularly. They have the feeling they are missing something in the other part of the space, so they are in the search of the perfect position.
Even Though the videos are in different room, they are connected as turning into musical elements in combination with live electronics and the acoustic sound of the bassoon.
This piece was created as in the resident program of Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau and Kurt Weill Fest.

In this track, Alexandar Hadjiev took his old recording of Telemann - e-minor sonata and created this soundscape with it. After the dancer Tadeu Liesenfeld sent him video with him dancing, Alexandar did the same with the video and turned it into the audio/video piece "e-minor".

180° - laboratory for innovative art
Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria
180° is one of the most innovative forums for contemporary art in Bulgaria. 180° is not just a festival, but a platform/laboratory for contemporary music, dance, theatre and design. 180° is experiment, which challenges the art, audience, artists and space.
The mission of the 180° team is to give the opportunity to young artists to further develop their innovative ideas and to attract new audience for their art.
Since 2014 this events diversify the cultural scene of Sofia and provides the audience with brighter choice of events in the summer season.
The idea of the festival is to accomplish a cultural, creative and artistic exchange between international and bulgarian young-professionals.
In 2013 the four musicians Elica Bogdanova, Alexandar Hadjiev, Veneta Neynska and Stefan Hadjiev gathered their ideas and experience together, to initiate the 180° festival. Born out of music and contemporary dance, the festival transforms into “laboratory for innovative art” and today it includes music, dance, design, theatre and architecture.
