“5х5+1” is an interdisciplinary artistic project by choreographer Petur Iliev (USA/Bulgaria) in collaboration with:
– 2 US guest choreographers – Theresa Ruth Howard, Christian von Howard;
– Zdravko Kostadinov (Groovez/Dance Zone, Bulgaria) – a young Bulgarian choreographer and one of the Iliev Dance Art Foundation`s scholarship dancers;
– 2 of Bulgaria’s most famous world music and ethno jazz musicians and composers – Peter Ralchev and Peyo Peev.
The soundtrack of “5×5+1”, performed live by 5 renowned Bulgarian musicians, is in itself a tempting tracery of jazz, electronic, classical and world music. Its open improvisation provokes both performers and audience for an unforgettable experience.
