In this piece Ivo Dimchev examines the conventions of the theatre world. The performance is set in the context of an imaginary festival in Copenhagen. The main characters are the performer Ivo Dimchev, a programmer, a technician and a critic. What starts off as a realistic piece soon turns into a fantasy about sex and power.
One day I just realised how bored I am from the conventional way of my everyday professional communications.
So I thought that breaking this convention by creating a fictional story is good way to go.
Fest tells the story of me going to a festival in Copenhagen to present my solo Som Faves.
The performance explores and makes visible the subconscious connections between power and desire in any professional relations.
Fest is a absolute fiction and is not based on any real personal experience. Lets say its inspired by it....
But mostly is inspired by my guilty love for Theatre in its more "conventional" setting.
