Diverted Traffic Collective
Violeta is one of the founding members of the visual theatre collective ‘’Diverted traffic’’. The performance collective is formed by costume/set designer Aziza Kadyri, director/sound, designer/writer Fanis Sakellariou and director/choreographer/creative producer Violeta M. Valcheva. Its main objective is the experimentation with new forms of theatre and what performance can be in the future.
In 2018 we met at Central Saint Martins, while studying MA Performance Design & Practice. The collective was formed in September 2018 and has since been based in London, UK. During its first year, it has presented work in London, Berlin, Prague and Ancona. Some of the recurring themes in its performances are search for identity, displacement, creation and destruction of worlds, alternative scenarios, and posthumanism. Heavily relying on scenographic metaphors, it aims to convey these concepts in an inventive, poetic way.
