// Altered States: a performance conversation (на английски език)
Меган Бридж и Зорница Стоянова са награждавани изпълнители и хореографи. Като жени, майки и професионалисти в танцовото общество, изучават концепцията за “присъствие” както на сцената така и в ежедневието ни. Чрез танц и отворен разговор, помежду си обсъждат, демонстрират и проучват своите техники, композиционни инструменти и физически практики за създаване на това променено състояние или “присъствие” привично за сцената. Този дует на Зорница и Меган предлага различни начини за съществуване в света, като дава под въпрос невро-нормативните начини на възприятие и битуване. Двете поставят тези практики на “присъствие” като тактики за оцеляване или стратегии за справяне с ежедневието и битието ни.
// На 6 и 7 май BodyMeld – experimental contemporary dance platform гостува на ТаМ Велико Търново с два танцови спектакъла и движенчески уъркшоп, водени от американската хореографка Мегън Бридж и Зорница Стоянова.

// Altered States: a performance conversation
Megan Bridge and Zornitsa Stoyanova are both award-winning and critically acclaimed performers and choreographers. They are both women, mothers, and choreographers who research the concept of “presence” in performance and in our daily life. Through moving and talking, they discuss, demonstrate, and explore their own techniques, compositional tools, and physical practices, for creating an altered state of “presence”. Zornitsa and Megan’s performance suggests different ways of being in the world, challenging neuro-normative modes of perception and being. They center these “presencing” practices as survival tactics or strategies to help navigate the dailyness/deadliness of everyday life.
