Creative Crossroads Cycle One 2023–2024

Marion Darova

Marion Darova is a choreographer and performer from Sofia. Her interests include philosophy, psychoanalysis, social issues, and gender. Her works are characterized by minimalism and repetition of movement. Marion explores the inclusion of the body in the question of identity and the problematization of the natural-social relationship. In her latest dance performances WO MAN and FREEFALL, Marion engages with Judith Butler and Jacques Lacan's ideas on gender. For both performances, she received an ICAR nomination and an award respectively.

Marion is currently developing her solo work, which humorously presents the ridiculous situation anyone can find themselves in if they choose to theorize dance and dancing. In 2024, she will work on her new project with the working title "Vapor" which focuses on the lonely, disappearing body in the conditions of strong visual stimulation that modernity exerts on man. She conducted research for this project in the entertainment industry - videos, series, music genres, and films.
