Interview with Nataliya Tsekova about Gypsy Wheels / Tsiganski kolela (Bulgaria)
Roma Theatre Retrospective 2021
Interview by Rosamaria Kostic Cisneros.
This performance presents the struggles of a young Roma woman who has left the Bulgarian ghetto, gained work in an office, and now wants to resemble the majority of the world around her. Can we forget our roots? Can we deny ourselves? The heroine talks about herself and her relationships and has a positive tone, which is reinforced by the piece’s humor.
Performer: Nataliya Tsekova
