CHRISTIAN BAKALOVPRINT THIS PAGE
You may know Christian Bakalov as a performer in the works of Ivo Dimchev, Jan Fabre, Miet Warlop or Vincent Riebeek & Florentina Holzinger. In 2014 he developed with BRIGHT his frst parcours in which the audience plays the leading role. Immersed into a vast dark space full of phosphorescent signs, the most banal and daily objects become enchanted and estranged. Blurring the boundaries between performative action and installation, Bakalov develops a series of methods to introduce the audience into a poetic universe by addressing them one-on-one through diferent senses. While touring with BRIGHT he is currently developing the performance installation REIN, the second part of what will become a trilogy inspired by Spinoza's conception of eternity.
