Vestibule of St. Sophia Church
“A Piece of Soul” has been performed for a long time in Macedonia and Upa has become an embodiment of Blazhe Koneski. The performances are warmly received, with excitement, gratitude and emotions. And they bring piece. Piece to the soul.
“A Piece of Soul” is a metaphoric presentation of a life interwoven with the history of our homeland. It is a landscape of people and events, of Macedonian life, but first and foremost it is a whirlwind of emotions. You will witness the epic Krale Marko, St. Spiridon and Bolen Dojchin, the dance of men “Teshkoto” and Sterna. And the Angel of St. Sofia, the Beautiful women, Gentleness and uncle Riste, the White aunt… You will experience your own and the soul of your homeland.
Blazhe Kopneski has been here forever. Whenever I was lost for words, I had used his. Because like every other genius, his work we take and we own it. I live it, and I will have it forever, just like I have myself forever. And I will transfer it through me to the audience, I will feel the pain and rejoice it for every one of you, and for all of us.
