I'm excited to share a new class I'm teaching very soon at Mascher. Inspired by my recent week with legendary Deborah Hay, I'm offering some new and old approaches to performance.
Since becoming a parent, I teach only about once a year in Philly, so this is definitely a special time. Please, spread the word and come yourself if you are around. AC will be blasting.

No stopping. Juggling of attentions, feeling the deep in the surface.
What if what we experience can be felt/seen everywhere?
Radical dancing for radical bodies.
Distortions of intention leading into distortions of self.
Derailed desires, no dancing, be yourself without attaching, dis attach from your ideas of what you look like, be present here and now.
Forget your ego, feed your ego, get what you need, keep moving keep surviving, free yourself of over indulgence, indulge in your pleasure. Trickery of the senses. Trip yourself, trick yourself.
No time for development.
Not building, just being.
Find your vulnerability, find your rage.
Let me see you. Let them see us.
Welcome gesture. Welcome all the faucets of yourself.

Bulgarian on the map of European Dance - a personal journey in cultural dissociation.
I wrote a long article about my visit to Bulgaria this March, where I got to see two festivals back to back. One a Bulgarian dance showcase and the other Spring Forward Festival, featuring 20 performances from people from all over Europe.
Check it out here.
I'm also in the process of writing an article called Dance in Europe – in search of artistic and organizational sustainability.
It will publish later next week, so keep your eyes open for it on thinkingdance.net
FILM & TEACHINGS
End of July, I'm heading back to Bulgaria to spend time with my family and shoot more dance films. Hopefully since I'll be getting so much help with the kids, I'll finally be able to finish editing the million and a half short films I'm making and you'll get to see the famous 3 year film in the making and not just its awesome stills.
Looking for Teaching and Performance Gigs
Now that my kids are growing up a bit, I'm looking for more opportunities to teach dance, performance, dance on film and composition. I'm open to subbing college level classes and can even offer workshops in your communities. I try to spend summers in Europe and actively looking for gigs there in 2019. If you or anyone you know is interested in hosting me as a teacher, please let me know. Any pointers are deeply appreciated. THANK YOU! email me at zornitsa(at)herebegindance.com
Best to all,
