The participants in the discussion debate the challenges facing the stage arts that continue to seek their connection to their audiences in the internet space in a situation of COVID-19 restrictions on live events.
From the point of view of the World Theatre in Sofia platform which has a digital edition this year an advantage of the digital selection is that it is not limited to the current bills of the theatres, and we can see performances from the recent past that have turned out to be significant for the European stage. Thus, the digital selection of World Theatre in Sofia 2020 shows different faces of contemporary stage during the recent years. The selection is dominated by certain highlights: the performances based on Chekhov’s texts; the theatre that casts light on some important political topics; the expanding territories of theatricality in the field of contemporary ballet, contemporary circus; the productions with participation of Bulgarian artists.
