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.

La Fabrika | 19:30
Don´t miss a dance show in an arena full of nets, strange creatures and unexpected twists where everyone has to be alert. It is a place where only “the strongest” survive. The show is inspired by current bestseller SAPIENS – a Brief History of Humankid, a breath-taking yet scary story of humanity and ruthless cruelty, power and intelligence of man.
