RIVE responds to the question of the present and the future meaning of rivers. Historically rivers are not only a main source and center of life, but carriers of meaning for human interaction. The journey started in the middle of August 2014. Artist from different fields travel the length of the River Danube on a boat, inviting people from the Black Forest to the Black Sea to experience an exhibition, workshops and a multimedia performance.
Bulgarian choreographer Jivko Jeliazkov has created a 25 minute performance with dancers Rebekka Böhme, Michal Goral, Elena Martino and Philip Milanov. Bulgarian new media artist Albena Baeva programmed the generative video environment for this performance. The live music for the evening has been composed by Kamil Sobiczewski, Gabor Görgenyi, Patryk Matela and Ljubomir Nikolic.
The project RIVE Rivers of Europe is organised and created by cultural organizations from 8 different European countries including Bulgaria, Hungary, Austria, Serbia, Poland, Germany, Slovakia.
