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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
As the name itself suggests, the performance will consist of duets, i.e. two bodies, two people as a minimum for the establishment of a community. In an age of individualism and loneliness, the creators decided to explore ways to meet, to communicate without words.
DUETS is a production based on real and improvised encounters between people right in front of the audience.
Putin’s Agents is a live-cinema production. We thought that after the fall of the Iron Curtain and joining NATO, we were no longer in danger. However, the Russian secret services never withdrew their agents from the Czech Republic. On the contrary, their ranks have strengthened significantly.
Leading Czech creative dancer Tereza Ondrová and theatre director Petra Tejnorová explore the boundaries of subtle humour, irony and absurdity under the directorial-choreographic leadership of Karine Ponties. Inspired by Buster Keaton, despite all the lightness of the form they can move us with their depth and sincerity.
A brief manual for anxious audiences. A few lessons on endangered species. A physical documentary about contemporary dance.
