The actors of the ISO Theatre came together again in context of the Small Season Festival in Sofia for an exclusive ISO Theatre masterclass directed by the Sfumato Laboratory Theatre's artistic directors Margarita Mladenova and Ivan Dobchev.
The idea is through the garment to resurrect the human, his unique personal being and so to form his monologue. A fragment of No -* I* by S. Beckett
"We will apply as creative tools theatrical techniques and practices "outside-inside"; we will provoke the imagination, the sensory memory and the ability of the actor to empathize “entering” in someone's life. We will find path from the game to the no-game, through a series of individual attempts to a theatrical re-construction of the genius text of Beckett, formed by the monologues of a group of nameless people. Let us look at the nameless human, the human second hand."
M. Mladenova, I. Dobchev

Union des Théâtres de l'Europe gathered, in the last 3 decades, some of the most important European theatres and artists. Through festivals, exhibitions, exchanges, masterclasses, cooperation projects, the UTE help create a continuous flow between West and East, between generations, between tradition and innovation. Our celebration is inspired by this rich history. With the help of the Interferences International Theatre Festival, we wish to remember some of the best performances presented at past editions of the UTE festival and look forward to new horizons.
