After studying at the Ballet School of Sofia Opera in Bulgaria,
Christian Bakalov began his dance career in France in the
Young Ballet of France and CCNN of Nantes.
Since 2009 he lives and works in Brussels where he
participates in the opening of the independent performance
space Volksroom directed by Ivo Dimchev.
We know him especially as a performer of Ivo Dimchev , Jan
Fabre and Miet Warlop but he has also participated in productions by
Robert Wilson, Jérôme Bel and Florentina Holzinger & Vincent Riebeek.
In 2013 he began developing his first immersive performative installation BRIGHT,
in which the audience plays the main role. Blurring the boundaries between
performative action and installation, Bakalov develops a series of immersive
methods to introduce the audience into a parallel universe by
addressing them one-on-one through different senses.
The trilogy ETERNIA , inspired by Spinoza's concept of Eternity
is produced and supported by ArtEast Foundation and Workspacebrussels
