With humour and sarcasm, the musician tells a story about his relationship with the Gadulka. An instrument often overlooked and unremarkable in its appearance, it is in fact the backbone of the Bulgarian folk orchestra. By blaming the Gadulka and undermining its functionality and significance, the Gadulka player reveals the similarities between himself and the instrument. He takes us on a journey through the mysteries and fear we all face on a daily basis. We encounter a story about foundations, foundations which we inevitably take for granted, until the moment they disappear and we have the feeling that we are disappearing as well.

The performance is inspired by Bulgarian culture and reveals to the audience the characteristics of Bulgarian folklore, traditional dances and costumes. It explores the relationship between the Gadulka (a Bulgarian musical instrument) and its owner.

'Sometimes the Balkans seem to me a terrible place, full of absurdities and severe apathy that disintegrates everything around them. Other times I see their beauty and joy, a strange smile peering stupidly everywhere and making you smile, asking you to go figure them out yourself.' Rayko Baychev
