Hristiyan Bakalov brings to the Stara Zagora stage one of his first dance choreographies, which has won him international success. This is an entirely male dance to the popular chanson by Jacques Brel “Au Suivant” (“Next One”). “AU SUIVANT is my first “live” choreography (the first – “first” is one short film), realized by commission of the Young Ballet of France in 1999. The choreography made by me functions as “mobile subtitles” of this cult song, created by one of the giants of the French chanson. Leaving the dancers’ bodies to express through movement the momentary charge, which is pouring over us while listening to the song, the choreography is like a physical materialization of the same emotional, energy and artistic charge, which defines Brel himself in a unique way as well, as a person and creator.” – shared the talented choreographer.
