“Spaces Alive” is a project conceived by Mihaela Kavdanska & Dilmana Yordanova as a series of site-specific, performative video installations.
They invite to collaboration artists from different fields, telling a new story every time, in a new space, using various formats of interaction and implementation.
“Spaces Alive” is an inspirational site-specific poetry, “bringing to life” a certain physical space, through the interaction between dance/ performance, generative visuals (an interactive video projection) and sound. All media being connected in a real-time experience of intermedia oneness, for artists and public.

The arch as a gateway to the birth of a new experience. A Door of Time. In “Spaces Alive_01”, the arch is constantly re-composed and re-contextualised.
Each of the four arches has a role in creating an experience for both artists and the public.
SPACES ALIVE. BUCHAREST SURREAL
“Spaces Alive. Bucharest Surreal” is a series of five site-specific performative interventions, conceived and performed in Bucharest during July-November 2017. Once a month, a group of 14 visual, sound & performance artists, dancers, choreographer & curator, got together to create a new project, inspired by a new space: a club inhabiting an old factory, a museum, the oldest house in Bucharest, a white cube gallery and a private apartment.
