The mission of Taratantsi is to arouse interest in Bulgarian folklore, translating it into the current language through author’s methods. We create products and educational programs with which we transfer folklore today and use it as a means to develop skills needed in the modern world.

Taratantsi designs graphic images of the incredible figures that people create with their steps while dancing the Bulgarian folk dances. Each dance, performed in a circle and visually presented through its steps, has an authentic and unique shape. The clock size is represented by the number of lines in the background of the visualizations, and the colors used correspond to the Bulgarian folk costumes, typical for the region from which the dance originates.

Due to its universal elements, this “graphic language” can be successfully applied to visualize folk dances of other peoples, which creates an opportunity for dialogue between different nations.
