About 420people

The contemporary dance group 420PEOPLE, named after the Czech country code, was founded by Václav Kuneš and Nataša Novotná at the turn of the years 2007/2008, after they returned home from one of the most prestigious dance theatres - Jiří Kylián's Nederlands Dans Theater. The tandem’s vision to build their own contemporary dance group in Prague bring the brand 420PEOPLE into being. The company has now been a stable player on the Czech and international theatre and dance scene for 15 years.

420PEOPLE is a fusion of outstanding dance quality, professionalism, sophisticated playfulness and true daringness in presenting a sheer vocabulary of contemporary dance, improvisation as an inherent part of creation and an unorthodox dialogue with the audience in the form of Q and A sessions, workshops and other activities.

The performance choreographed by Sylva Šafková and performed by the new duo of dancers Simona Machovičová and Viktor Konvalinka raises, through contemporary dance, the theme of the (un)moral, ethically challenging nature of human behaviour..."on the underlying reason why when everything that was going right - all of a sudden goes wrong."
