The Showcase program focuses on innovative productions from contemporary theater, dance and performance arts. There is also a parallel program including discussions, workshops, exhibitions, concerts, etc. This year, the Bulgarian program of the Varna Summer Festival shows 10 performances that received critical acclaim last season. The forum focuses on the 90th anniversary of the birth of Yordan Radichkov – Bulgarian writer and playwright, who has made an outstanding contribution to the national theater. The plays by Radichkov are included in the program.
