christian bakalov

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.
