As we begin to move through this summer and finish the run of our inaugural production, our thoughts are immediately moving onto our exciting projects for the fall and winter. “Hopa Tropa” is just one of our upcoming creative projects that will bring a colorful taste of Bulgarian culture to the DC area.
“Hopa Tropa” began as an idea to continue with Ambassador Theater’s mission to highlight international cultures and bring them to the DC area. After working with Polish theater, we enthusiatically moved to working on Bulgaria. And what better way to bring the color, fun, and excitment of Bulgarian culture, than through a children’s show! We began searching for a piece to work on, going so far as to contact artists at famous children’s theater in Varna, Bulgaria, who informed us that the particular piece we were interested in was created experiementally through improvisation, and no written draft was available. Brainstorming on what next to do, we decided to write our own piece, dubbed by Lilia Slavova “Hopa Tropa!”, after a spirited jump in a dance. With this kind of spirited spontaneity, “Hopa Tropa” was born.
