Temporary Collective is an independent platform that creates productions and projects of various genres and themes. Its poetics and direction follow the original work of director Petra Tejnorová and dancer Tereza Ondrová. Temporary Collective is a live platform with a wide range of other collaborators.

About us

Director Petra Tejnorová used to have the group Sgt.Tejnorová & The Commando, dancer and choreographer Tereza Ondrová used to have the dance group VerTeDance. Everything is temporary, and so these groups disappeared as well. The interest of both artists in cross-connecting different genres and disciplines culminated in the creation of the new creative platform Temporary Collective, whose core also includes manager Michal Somoš and producer Daniela Řeháková, who participated in the most recent independent projects of both artists. In addition to projects within the platform, all founding members are also successfully involved in other activities outside it. Currently, Temporary Collective consists of photographer Marek Bartoš, musician and visual artist Dominik Žižka, and Tereza Baschová, with collaboration from Adina Hanáková and Roman Poliak.

MOVE | work in progress

We will be very happy – if you accept an invitation to an open rehearsal – because *we can’t move without you* ::: 1/11 at the PONEC Theatre from 20:00.

This project ” MOVE”  was born from a conversation about sustainability in dance and theatre, between the director Petra Tejnorová, dancer Tereza Ondrová and the members of Temporary Collective. Over the past year, we have been gradually setting up new working methods and trying to challenge our procedures and models. We decided to move towards greater balance and sustainability. 

Exhaustion and transformation. How does something that can not move live? And have we gone too far in taking the energy resources of our planet and our own bodies for granted?

Projects

Call Alice

Two women, both dancers, both the same age, are said to have a remarkable physical resemblance. At first, they have no idea about each other, maybe they just heard that everyone has a double somewhere. Is it possible to find answers through another person? What makes us identify and connect with others and ourselves?

INSECTUM in …

During the pandemic and creative meetings conducted remotely, choreographers Tereza Ondrová and Silvia Gribaudi asked various questions: What would life look like if we saw it from an insect’s perspective? Can another living creature inspire us so much that we change our own lives? How can we alter the anthropocentric view of the world? Similar questions were already explored by Sara Michieletto and Elisabetta Zavoli, whose concept formed the basis of this Insectum in Prague project.

SILENT

SILENT is an audio performance for a group of audience members in public space that consists of movement/workout instructions for body and thought over the course of 35 minutes. The audio is started by one voice and continued by the next to create a series of voices that together develop one landscape of thought and movement.

In be-tween – a video essay

The video essay entitled IN BE-TWEEN presents creative work, as well as the process of rehearsing a dance project of the same name.

Voices

Voices is a virtual voice-mail where you can leave and share questions, thoughts, frustrations, and emotions. Things that the body cannot hold any longer and needs to release and share, in order to finish them, get rid of them or develop them.

Between the Lines, or The Media Don’t Always Tell the Truth

An educational programme for teenagers combining the show Putin’s Agents with interactive workshops run by artists, journalists, and education experts. Between the Lines opens during the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 seasons in Prague and Ústí nad Labem.
