Nová scéna

Phantastes

MOVE Dance Company’s first performance inspired by the book Phantastes written by George MacDonald.

Where is the border between adulthood and children’s imagination? Why are we looking for windows, rabbit holes and wardrobes, though which we can once again enter realms of dreams, and change our room into a mysterious island and the couch into a pirate ship.

Choreography: Anna Jirmanová

Phantastes: Tereza Cigánková, Vít Hofmann, Katarzynaa Kavka, Lucie Kovářová, Valeriia Osipkina, Eva Štěpandová

Light design: Pavel Vitt

Production: MOVE Dance Company and Cooltour Cultural Centre

 

The performance was supported by the Ministry of Culture and the City of Ostrava

 

Carpet diem

Seize the day. But what if there treacherously appears a carpet during this day? Or two? What will you do with them?  Jana Ryšlavá and Jindřich Panský decided to try it. It is not that easy to enjoy every single moment of your life – as the gurus who write books with smiley people on the cover claim. What you truly love at the beginning may throw a spanner in the works at last.  Will you step it over with a smile or fall and start swearing? Or can you fall with a winning smile? Hmm…?

An extract from work in progress performance under patronage of MOVE Dance Company.  In other words: It is not finished yet, it needs some extra work, but we want to know how you like it.

Choreography, theme development and fighting with carpets: Jana Ryšavá, Jindřich Panský
