In The Spell I treat two performers as two characters who are being transformed through their relationship. Through mutual interaction they provoke, challenge, and disturb each other, they change roles, occasionally overcome crisis, they rejoice in a loud, buoyant togetherness, like magnets they uncontrollably fuse and explode to nothingness, they exhaust and depend on each other. Tired and changed, they end up in a tender, yet cranky embrace, aware of each other’s fragility and delicate powers that bind them together.

The Spell is written for my two inspiring friends and great musicians Pavlina Dokovska and Vladimir Valjarevic.

First performed June 27th 2008, Bulgaria Hall, Sofia.
