Summary/Abstract: The article deals with Nikola Toromanov, an outstanding figure in Bulgaria’s set design from the generation that began their careers in the 1990s, focusing on his productive cooperation with directors Stoyan Kambarev and Yavor Gardev, bound by strong creative partnerships. A detailed analysis of his visual solutions to a number of productions seeks to find answers to the question of his manner that makes him attractive to directors as a co-author of creative ideas. The attention is focused on his constructive thinking of stage space and experiments with it; his special attention to lighting; creation of a compact visual image that carries sensory knowledge of the semantic layer of a performance; his understanding of scenography as simultaneousness and integrity of the material world and the metaphysical dimension to it.
