Workshop for dramaturges, set designers and actors ending with performance and debate.

Leaded by Valeria Valcheva – director

The theater and the space is a topic for a workshop be¬tween professionals and debutants in the area of theater, which are gathered for a week in order to create short works “from scratch”, provoked by the spaces of the Museum of Contemporary art – Sofia Arsenal.
The project is funded by the Culture - National
Foundation together with the National Academy of Art.

The exposition is under the patronage of the Minister of Culture, Mr. Vezhdi Rashidov, and is organized with the support of the French Institute in Bulgaria in partner¬ship with Sofia Arsenal -Museum for Contemporary Art.

The first exhibition of photographs by Milcho Man-chevski Street was presented in the Museum for Contemporary Art in Skopje in 1999, whereupon it was shown in galleries in Stockholm, Ljubljana and Thessaloniki. Street includes images captured on the streets of Europe and America. Five Drops of Dream is an extension to this exhibition 10 years later. The project was implemented again at the invitation of the Museum for Contemporary Art in Skopje and formally and conceptually develops further what was seen on that journey.
