New dance studio opening!
Maiselova 4, Praha 1
The studio, located in Maiselova street in the Old Town, is the first formal venue of the 420PEOPLE dance group. The studio offers a wide range of movement activities for the general public according to a regular schedule, while also providing a space for rehearsals of 420PEOPLE's repertoire.
The dance film THROUGH GLASS, directed by Marek Partyš and choreographed by Sylva Šafková, combines contemporary dance and a visual story that describes the image of distorted reality: “Reflections, angles of view, distorted reality...but if you hold it against a mirror, the letters will go again in the right direction."
“We’ll call you. Next please!” A trio of promising participants get much further than the Producer ever expected. The twelfth exactly same musical number gets him off his chair. A few hours in and a guy with number 451 is tap-dancing around his head. This is not an ordinary audition anymore. The Producer isn’t sitting safely behind his table wall. Actually…he does sit there still, but these are not tables anymore. And he is not alone. Now it’s an Audition. For life.
The idea for short dance film ORĪGĪ came from the title of an EU project: CLASH! When classic & contemporary dance collide & new forms emerge. Unexpected encounter of three dancers. All of them are very different. Three pairs of shoes. Very different. New people, new situation. Can they adapt? Do they want to adapt? The only thing they have in common is a desire to dance. Is that enough?
