When you are home alone you can engage in some pleasant pursuits. Dance in front of the mirror, stare at the sky through the window. You can indulge in a nice memory, daydream or ponder over various topics… Like Iva who asks: how many personalities live in a person? Do we do what we love? Do we love what we do? And also: what is the connection between the population of vultures and the everyday life of an advertising director? And between a love monologue and a burnt bulb?
“Nice to Meet You, Iva” has become one of season’s freshest events. Living between Italy and Bulgaria actress Iva Todorova, who has studied under the big director Krikor Azaryan, comes on the stage after a long absence and turns theatre into a space for sharing. The autobiographical text intertwines a number of stories and seemingly banal events but uses them to say big and important things for each and every one of us as a part of contemporary society. Characteristic and delicate at the same time, the actress sets a new bar for the genre of stand-up comedy on theatre stage.
