“MUSEUM OF EMOTIONS” – a captivating interdisciplinary performance!




Creative project & performance


by Aleksander Mandzhukov’s idea

Inspired by a conversation with Vanya Todorova (Equestrian base “Achilles”)


Participating – 1st year students majoring in Theater of Movement – Dance Theater,

NATFIZ, under the supervision of Al. Mandzhukov


Description of the idea

The focus of the presented artistic project is an intervention between an artist and a professional from another field, on one of the main themes of the project – Empathy. As a professional artist in the field of dance theater, I find a connection between the language of corporeality and the empathetic impact through the body to construct a performance. Artistic performance through the body and the relationship with the audience makes a specific impact on the viewer through an invisible connection and considers the relationship as a projection of a human problem. We will focus this creative project on the understanding of empathy as a formula that represents it as a passive-contemplative attitude to the experiences of another – empathy or sympathy, but without active intervention to change through actions (Psihologiceskii slovar, 1983: 413).
