Plovdiv 2019 (Пловдив 2019)

LIVE STREAMING ON 12 JANUARY 2019, 7 PM EET (6 PM CET): 
OPENING EVENT OF PLOVDIV - EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE 2019 WITH THE WE ARE ALL COLOURS SHOW


Over the course of an extended weekend (11-13 January 2019) a series of events will take place at various in- and outdoor spaces across the city. Its peak will be on Saturday, 12 January. The very heart of Plovdiv will welcome the ceremony. The show, combining music, light and dance, will give the key to the whole year ahead and to the basic concept of the European Capital of Culture project, in which the citizens themselves are not only audiences and actors, but also creators of events. More than 1500 participants from Bulgaria and abroad will recreate on the open stage a large and colorful metaphor of all the main themes of the programme ‘Plovdiv 2019’ and their relationships under the motto ‘Together’. 

В рамките на дългия уикенд през януари (11-13 януари 2019 г.) са планирани серия от събития в различни пространства, открити и закрити сцени в града, които ще имат своята кулминация в съботната вечер на 12 януари 2019 г. Откриването ще бъде в самото сърце на Пловдив. Спектакълът, съчетаващ музика, светлина и танц, ще даде ключ към цялата предстояща година и към основната концепция на проекта Европейска столица на културата, в която самите граждани са не само публика и участници, но и създатели на събитията. Над 1500 участници от България и чужбина ще пресъздадат на открита сцена мащабна и цветна метафора на всички основни теми от програмата на „Пловдив 2019“ и на тяхното свързване под мотото „Заедно“.

Pieter Martijn



Last year, I was visiting my brother-in-law Pieter. It was in his house for the first time. Pieter told me that he was very impressed by the painter Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci when he was a young boy. His way in life was always haunted by his beloved painter. Thus he began to paint and made his life story in paintings by Leonardo da Vinci. His sons, former wife, close friends and important characters you see in these paintings.The result is impressive!. LINK Via Dolf Pauw
