Hello people,


We are establishing and art space in nature called Bulgarayya.
Our desire is to create space for artistic projects in the field of dance, music theater and other arts. Kind of residency for artists.

There is already plenty of space for visitors and helpers... We boght a new house wich is our dancing space... SO
IF YOU ARE DANCERS you are more than welcome!

The village is 40km from Sofia in mountainous area with only two citizens.

It is not a community... It is an expriment... It is a place (three houses and a yard) in a small village close to Sofia, Bulgaria. We did already reconstructed and restaurated one clay house, some dancing space and a room for guests... so there are conditions for up to 10 people living together for some time.

There is still a lot of work in organizing the space (the garden too).

We are a family. Petya, Dido and little Kaya
We are working on many different ideas...

volunteers have to be able to take care for themselves (leaving the spaces clean and organized, cooking, shoping, washing...and so on!...
Work depends on your skills and wish...
