Choreographer, artist, vocalist, songwriter, performer, provocateur… This time Ivo Dimchev offers a completely new format. The musical group performance Sculptures is also the title of his newest album, and the songs are the backbone of this unique performance, standing on the border between a pop concert and a contemporary dance performance.

I’m bored of singing behind a microphone, though I like it,

I love the restriction of it …

I like the oppression of it, but it’s time to revisit the Madonna format.

She failed in it… I saw it at Madison Square Garden… she overloaded it.

We’ll do less, more quiet, more kind to the eyes… more loving.
