The Bulgarian Dance Platform is a new initiative of the Antistatic International Festival for Contemporary Dance and Performance in Sofia. The first edition happened in 2018 and in 2020 it is time for the second edition.

Initially planned for May 2020, the event has been postponed to October-November 2020. On October 10-11, Antistatic will host an international choreographers meeting.

On November 6 to 8, in the frame of 3 days the Bulgarian Dance Platform will present 10 productions by young and established Bulgarian choreographers and artists, created in the last couple of years.

As the platform creates a rare opportunity to get a grasp of the Bulgarian independent contemporary dance scene, a limited number of dance professionals get the possibility to join the Platform with small support from the organisers (accommodation/free tickets). For more details on this, please contact the organizers at and
