For many years now UBB has been partner of the Scene at Crossroads festival, which has become a cultural symbol of Plovdiv town.

The festival was founded in 1997 on the initiative of the eminent Bulgarian actor Stefan Danailov, with the support of Plovdiv Municipality, the Ministry of Culture and Plovdiv Drama Theatre. The festival started with the ambition to become a grand cultural event not only for the Town under the Hills, but also of Bulgarian and European significance. Today the event proudly marks the hosting of nearly 400 performances, given by theater companies from France, Russia, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Ukraine and others.

Every year, Scene at Crossroads welcomes its followers between 10 and 23 September. The programme traditionally features from 20 to 25 theatrical performances and 7-8 accompanying events - readings, exhibitions, films, conferences, book launches, anniversary dinners. The arts programme is virtually hosted by the entire town - from the renovated Drama Theatre, the Ancient theater – a large and a small one, to the open-air spaces in Plovdiv downtown area.

It has been four years already since UBB has become the proud patron of one of the Festival’s performances, thus paying its tribute to the artists, involved in the theatrical event. In 2013 we promoted the staging of the “People of Oz” performance, in Y2014 - the staging of “Yerma”, in Y2015 - the Festival's opening performance - "Palaveevi Sisters", and in Y2016 - the staging of “Zoya`s Apartment”.
