Big City to a Small Town: The Story of Dr. Stoytcheva-Horissaian
This is exactly what happened when Dr. Biliana Stoytcheva-Horissaian left her hometown of Sofia, Bulgaria, the capital, to live in the United States in order to attend graduate school and, later, to teach at Emory and Henry College. Before coming to America, Stoytcheva-Horissaian knew very little of the country. "We were taught nothing about American culture or American theatre in school before 1989," she says.
Growing up in Bulgaria, Stoytcheva-Horissaian says she had a happy childhood. She enjoyed some of the benefits she received under the socialist government. "I liked having free health care and the idea that everyone was equal," she says. While she feels that socialism is great in theory, she believes that, in practice, it doesn't always work out as well as it should. "We were happy to welcome in the changes," she said of the end of socialism. In particular, she didn't like the restrictions placed on freedom of speech.
Stoytcheva-Horissaian left Bulgaria in September of 1995 in order to study theatre at the University of Oregon. There, she received her PhD in Theatre Arts. Stoytcheva-Horissian comes from a family of actors. Both of her parents were actors, and her sister went into theatre as well. "They are actually pretty famous in Bulgaria," she says.
"I didn't originally plan to stay in America," Stoytcheva-Horissian says. However, after getting a job that she loved, she changed her plans. She has taught at Emory and Henry College for the past seven years and has served as Chair of the Theatre department for the past year. Besides her duties as Chair, she also teaches classes in stage management, acting, audtions, and style. Along with her professional obligations, Stoytcheva-Horissian also has the responsiblity of raising a 16-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl.
