THREE CHAINS OF SLAVES A FOLK SONG FROM THE PIRIN REGION MUSIC BY STEFAN DRAGOSTINOV TRANSLATED BY ELIZABETH DINKOVA
A lone maiden Curses at her tired eyes: “Damn you, my black eyes, You always watched vigilantly And now you fell asleep You didn’t see What went down the road What went down the road Three chains of slaves. On the first chain All small children On the second chain All young brides On the third chain All young men. The first chain leads My brother’s child The second chain leads My dear sister The third chain leads My first love.” 3
The people, Pricked By a thousand knives, Dulled, Degraded, Poorer than beggars, Deprived Of brain And nerve, Arose From the darkness and fear Of their lives —And wrote with their blood
FREEDOM! –GEO MILEV, SEPTEMBER, TRANSLATED BY PETER TEMPEST 4
Geo Milev’s lines, written in 1924 for his iconic poem September, still echo loudly in our very own day and age: Occupy Wall Street. Occupy London. Tahrir Square. The Arab Spring. The Syrian Civil War. Black Lives Matter. Standing Rock. The anti-austerity demonstrations in Athens. The feminist and pro-choice demonstrations all over the world. This list could go on forever. At a time in which political and economic systems have failed entire social, racial, religious and gender groups, people are organizing, making demands, taking to the streets. Bulgaria! Revolt! is an investigation of revolution, from the moment when the seed of utopian thinking is planted in the hearts and minds of people, to the aftermath of the revolutionary process. Inspired by Geo Milev’s masterpiece, which recounts the failed uprising against Aleksandar Tsankov’s dictatorship (1923-1926), our musical delves into the poet’s struggle between his revolutionary ideals and paralyzing cynicism. On the eve of his disappearance at the hands of the secret police, our poet will have his conscience tested by his wife Mila and the Devil—the first failed revolutionary, thrown into perpetual darkness for revolting against God. Structured as a riff on the medieval trope of The Psychomachia, Bulgaria! Revolt! will take the Milevs on a dreamlike journey to two very different, yet equally oppressive, worlds—a timeless Bulgarian village and Chicago in the golden age of the meatpacking industry.
More than ninety years after Geo Milev’s disappearance and in the midst of one of the most tumultuous periods in American politics, Bulgaria! Revolt! is a theatrical experience that connects present and past revolutions, by summoning the specters of those who perished in the name of social change but still haunt our present, waiting to be redeemed. Geo Milev (1895–1925) was one of the most iconic figures of Bulgarian 20thcentury literature. In 1919 he returned home from World War I, having lost his right eye during a shell attack. Accompanied by his wife and relentless supporter, the actress Mila Mileva, Milev relocated to Sofia, where he launched the avant-garde publication Plamak (Flame). In 1924, he decided to publish his epic poem September, an account of the failed uprising, led by the communists and the peasantry, against Aleksandar Tsankov’s government that resulted in the massacre of thousands of Bulgarians across the nation. Milev’s brave gesture had devastating consequences. Authorities seized the issue containing the poem right after its publication, and Milev had his citizenship revoked by the state. In April 1925, the St. Nedelya Church bomb attack, perpetrated by members of the Communist Party, unleashed a wave of violent governmental repression. In the following weeks, hundreds of people—with or without actual connections to the attack— disappeared and were executed without a trial. Geo Milev was one of them. Thirty years later his remains were found in a mass grave near Sofia.
OPPOSITE: MILA AND GEO MILEV.
Leda Mileva—one of Geo and Mila’s two daughters and a renowned writer herself—wrote about the last memories of her father, before he disappeared at the hands of the Bulgarian state police. In Footsteps on the Stairs, she says: “I hardly remember my father. I was less than five when he ‘vanished without trace’—that was the first official version of his death in 1925. But, having grown up amidst his family and friends, amidst his extensive multilingual library—Geo Milev’s only real possession—my picture of my vanished father has always been vivid and sharp. His presence in our home was almost tangible […]. We were living in rented accommodation, as a rule on the top floor of various, for their time, tall buildings. Whenever I heard footsteps behind me as I climbed the stairs I always stopped and with a pounding heart timidly turned to see whether these were not, at long last, the footsteps of my father […]. One of my few clear memories from that time is the morning of our unexpected parting. I can still see the dark silhouette of the policeman framed in the door as he summoned my father for ‘a little questioning.’ My mother gave him a clean handkerchief and he followed the policeman out without even saying goodbye—surely they were just summoning him for a little questioning and he would soon be back for his morning cup of coffee.” –MARIA INÊS MARQUES, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG 5
