Rhythm and Silence Together as One

4th of September, Saturday afternoon at the brilliantly lit hall of Club "WePlay", friends and guests of the specialized website "We Hear You" gathered in Oroteka "Sedyanka" for the First Open Lesson on Bulgarian Folklore Dances for People with Hearing Impairments. People were buzzing with excitement for the event where rhythm and silence combined in a unique way.


Specialized website "We Hear You" is hosting the first ever open lesson on Bulgarian folklore dances for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. The event will be taking place with the skillful guidance of Prof. Dr. Anton Andonov, lecturer at the Department of Choreography at the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts, Plovdiv (AMDFA). The place will be provided by Oroteka Sedyanka (Club WePlay, 4th of September 2021).

On the 21st of January 2021, the Bulgarian Sign Language Bill was approved getting through the second reading stage of the Parliament session and officially becoming a law. The Bill was reviewed on 13th of January 2021 and the changes made are rather insignificant. True, Bulgaria now has legalized Bulgarian Sign Language (BgSL) just like other countries, but so far, that’s the only advantage in the situation. The way BgSL was legalized does not take into account the national specifications of our country, nor does it consider the specifics of all the people in the Bulgarian deaf community. The current analysis, albeit a not-so-comprehensive one, sheds some light on the real picture of the legalization, the consequences and the reactions among people regarding the process.
