“Our choreography doesn’t convey a joint story but unfolds our intimacy in a purely personal dance performance. There are no clichés. There are no unnecessary annotations. Nevertheless, it conjures up a well-known Renaissance imagery full of elusive tension between stable yet fractured lives, tension present in the proximity of two strangers... that becomes more tangible through contemporary dance,” says Václav Kuneš, choreographer, dancer and artistic director of 420PEOPLE company.
The project 42+PEOPLE also encompasses a forthcoming dance movie directed by Jaroslav Brabec and Václav Kuneš. The project is supported by the Prague City Hall, Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, Municipal District of Prague 1, ČEZ Foundation, and State Fund of Culture of the Czech Republic; the project is produced in cooperation with Studio MAISELOVKA.
