Out of Stage Project

“Out of stage” is an artistic project directed by Deyan Parouchev with professional dancers in original
locations across Europe. The dancers are invited to perform in curious and original places, as far as possible
from the traditional Opera/theaters stages world. The entire project is in black and white, with mixed

The aim of the project is to show that the dance is a universal form of art magnified by the people and the places,
