What's new on Hristo Shopov‘STAND BY”: Hristo Shopov’s first film as a director and producer
"STAND BY": A FILM DIRECTED BY HRISTO SHOPOV
For the first time, actor Hristo Shopov swaps role in the shooting of a film, by getting behind the camera and directing the film entitled ‘STAND BY’.
Hristo is also producer and scriptwriter of this film that takes the form of a documentary intensely dedicated to a sport which is thrilling but not well-known in Bulgaria, called IPSC, or ‘Dinamichna Strelva” in Bulgarian.
With this documentary-film, the viewer learns of all types of issues that are involved in this type of shooting sport, such as what the sport consists of, training, who can practice it, rules, the culture of respect and responsibility towards firearms, its practice in Bulgaria, etc.
IPSC earned official recognition as a sport in our country in 2005 and has been one of the biggest growing types of sport here in recent years. Proof of that are the champions (of both sexes) that we have in official competitions at national and international level.

HRISTO SHOPOV - NATIONAL TOUR
"SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR”:
11.04.2017 - SAMOKOV | 12.04.2017 - SOFIA | 26.04.2017 - SOFIA
Following the great sucess of the show “The Man from Earth” in Burgas, Varna and Dobrich, Hristo Shopov continues his national tour with a piece titled “Same Time, Next Year” . This theatrical production written in 1975 by Bernard Slader, won in its time an uncountable number of awards and has been performed more than 1400 on Broadway.
This will also sound familiar to the Bulgarian audience as there have been several memorable performances of this piece in the country.
Now, Hristo Shopov and Lilia Maravilia are faced with the challenge of bringing to life the characters George and Doris. The two clearly talented actors with a more than respectable career behind them are performing this piece for the first time in other cities besides Sofia. Their masterful interpretation of the story, which is seemingly trivial, will without a doubt excite the audience when they discover the passionate adventure which runs through the profound labyrinth of the human soul.

- 22 April 2017 - "Renaissance" Theatre / "Възраждане" (Sofia)
Hristo Shopov plays Professor John Oldman, the protagonist of Jerome Bixby’s “THE MAN FROM EARTH”
“THE MAN FROM EARTH” is the last work Bixby wrote before he died in 1998. Up to his death he had written several other science fiction stories such as various episodes of the TV series “Star Trek” and the plots of films like “The Twilight Zone”. In his latest work one can sense all the love he had of classic science fiction which he helped build.
In “THE MAN FROM EARTH”’s thrilling screenplay, Bixby starts with an implausible idea which keeps growing until the unbelievable story becomes an undeniable truth. One of these stories which entrances us from beginning to end, leaving us breathless and desperate to know more with every minute that passes.
The plot revolves around John Oldman, a professor of an American university, who hosts his farewell party at his house with his fellow professors of the university who are surprised by his sudden decision to abandon a stable job and what appeared to be a comfortable lifestyle.
During the party, Oldman reveals to his colleagues that he is a man who has lived since the start of the human species, immortal without knowing why for 14,000 years.
Title: "The Man from Earth".
Next performance: 22 April 2017 / Time: 19:00.
