    (Drama and Essays)

    This book collects drama and theatre essays by Tzveta Sofronieva – texts created between 1988 and 2024.

    The collection introduces typical topics of Sofronieva’s work through concepts such as ‘anthroposcene’, ‘cloning’, and ‘literary multiverse’.

    The book also presents Sofronieva’s collaboration with the independent theatre scene in Bulgaria: i.e. Emergency Theatre.

    The Red Cross of the Stage looks at the possibilities of culture to be “a sort of Emergency in a time of changing humanity’s relationship to itself”.

    This is a book for readers interested in writing in situations of global trauma and liminality.
