invisible city

IN(Visible) City is Portuguese animation director and arts scholar Pedro Serrazina’s animation masterclass. Serrazina is coming to Sofia on the invitation of the New Bulgarian University under the Erasmus+ programme, between 8th and 11th March 2023.

The theme of his masterclass is integrating urban spaces through animation. During the class participants will focus on Sofia’s urban landscape, rather that concentrating only on different characters, as most animations do. For the purpose of the masterpclass two iconic locations in Sofia have been chosen – “Malko Tarnovo” street and Sofia’s Central Mineral Bath.

Through this we will question the spirit of the place (genius loci) that many architects discuss and we look at the city with a critical eye. The end result will consist of animated interpretations through which we will rediscover emotions and the personal view point in the urban space.

The first meeting of Pedro Serrazina with the participants will be held in the SofiaLab space on March 8, and for the next 3 days we will take place in the "Laboratory of Animation Cinema" at the Radio-Television Center of NBU.

Partners in the project are New Bulgarian University, Universidade Lusófona de Lisboa, the Sofia Development Association and the "Culture" Program of Sofia Municipality.
