STRUCTURE AND TEAM

We, Violina Vassileva, Georgi Stoyanov, Ekaterina Kazakova Konstantin Kostov, Mary Carney, Poliksena Hardalova and Tsvete Yaneva, in 1993 became  founders of the private theater “Tsvete” with Director Yanko Yanev. We graduated from NATFA «Kr.Sarafov» – Sofia, acting and directing for puppet theater.

Since 1995 the team focused mainly on the use of drama and theater techniques, social and educational fields. To this purpose they did postgraduate courses and international trainings, seminars and workshop constantly updating their methods through participation in European projects for training of trainers and exchange of experience in international art and social projects.

In 1999 the theater was registered as a non-profit organization under the law of the persons and family and its work is guided by a Board currently including  V. VassilevaAlexandrova, Ekaterina Kazakova and Tsvete Yaneva as Chairperson. All decisions are discussed and approved at the meetings of the general assembly of Theatre Tsvete.  

In 2013 the association was re-registered under the Law on non-profit organizations in carrying out public benefit. Now chairman of the board is Violina VassilevaAlexandrova and members – Ekaterina Kazakova and Tsvete Yaneva.

Later some of us went to live and work abroad, so we were joined by Yordanka Andonova (puppeteer) Yavor Kostov and Yanko Velkov – Janez (actors).

In our performances we are often joined by  Georgi Mavrov, Nikolai Dogramadjiev and Vasil Spassov – all – puppeteers.

And our former trainee Vencislav Nenkov often takes part in our forum theater performances as a joker.

In our work we are also helped by many volunteers (students, teachers) from around the country who have undergone our trainings.
