Live Stage: The Bridge Festival [bg Ruse + Giurgiu]

bridge.jpgTHE TRANSBORDER BRIDGE FESTIVAL is a 2 days festival which takes place in Ruse (Bulgaria) and Giurgiu (Romania), on the 18th and 19th of July. The festival is part of European Sound Delta, a pan European project focused on sound-art, field recording and live performances.

Just a few hundreds miles away from the Danube delta two major cities Giurgiu (Ghiurghiu)-RO and Ruse (Ruse) – BG are facing each other. They face each other stonily even though they are linked by one of the rare bridges on the eastern part of the Danube. The Festival has been designed as a dialogue between both cities since it will associate Rumanian and Bulgarian artists but also students taking part in a workshop entitled sonic landmarks of the territory in collaboration with EU Space 21 (Ruse-BG), Banlieues d’Europ’Est (Bucarest) and the Elias Canetti House (Ruse-BG).
