GEO – Temporary Collective


Body, building, land. All with a history. All with their own rhythm. All with their own effect on each other. PONEC is a theatre in Prague standing on bedrock shaped by the Vltava River 20 000 years ago. A river that is now 1 kilometre away. Tereza has been dancing on that bedrock in PONEC for 25 years. The first solo she danced there was to a symphonic poem of the Vltava River. The choreography currently being researched for GEO is a topography of all of these players and layers. Through this dance and with the help of a geophone, the ground below and the body above will guide us into awareness of the landscape we all inhabit.

Review (in Czech) 

(en: GEO – to peel of memory layers by dancing, to swirl sediments)

And in movement, in dance, Tereza once again proves her other key strength: the ability to give crucial attention to detail and to pull out a dance structure from small gestures and movements (if only with her eyes), as if she were patiently embroidering a large canvas with tiny stitches, from which the observer will remain amazed – if he or she is willing to walk the path of small steps and turns with her, to give the small gestures great meaning.
