Performances by BodyMeld / Zornitsa Stoyanova

Un-seen (2019 – 50 min.)

Un-seen (solo) is a journey through a surreal and alienated world. Using Mylar material as a metaphor for the American(western) dream, Zornitsa becomes a refugee, looking to be part of this shiny new world.  Partly autobiographical, and partly based on the refugee crisis in both Europe and the U.S., the show traces the use of Mylar in our lives that leads to the disillusionment of the glitzy western world. Un-seen is a fantastical, beautiful, and ultimately fraudulent journey to the “promised land”.

Explicit Female (2016 – 60 min.)

Explicit Female (solo) is an immersion into the female body.  Featuring personal narratives, custom-designed lighting, and live feed special effects, it aims to process the mystery of the shape-shifting form half of the world resides in.  Casual, yet intimate, the performance strives to connect deeply and kinesthetically to the viewers, at times asking them to participate in the very creation of the event itself.

Mylar Storms -improvisation performances with Mylar (since 2013 ongoing – 20 min.)

Mylar Storms is ongoing research in falling horizons and disorienting dreamscapes. It questions identity and perception. Performances of Mylar Storms always involve Mylar and reflective light and often video projection. The performances are adapted and created to the specific space and have been performed all around the Philadelphia area. Anyone can book Mylar Storms performance or installation for corporate events, festivals or even a private event. Email Zornitsa directly to get in contact about details. – zornitsa(at)

shatter ::: dawn (2013 – 65 min.)

dance installation event
5 performers ::: 10 audience
shatter ::: dawn is an invitation to view the body as an object and an interactive social creature.  It explores the body as a container for multiplicity of meaning, shapeshifting into recognizable cultural images and abstractions.

Paper Duchess (2012 – solo 20 min.)

Zornitsa presents ways of deconstructing communication and attempts to translate, internal and external narratives through the body.
