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 11 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.
