Prague Chamber Ballet’s New Season Plans

Prague Chamber Ballet is opening the new season. The company will present three new premieres shortly, it will tour Czech cities with its current productions and will also travel abroad, to Equador or South Korea.

The premiere of the duet Metamorphic, choreographed by Martina Hajdyla Lacová and supervised by Andrej Petrovič, will take place on 5 October 2017 in the Ponec Theatre, Prague. The new piece is loosely based on the work of the sculptor August Rodin who was forming his sculptures, fascinated by a human, by nature and dance. His way of depiction and dramatization of a human body served as a source of movement to the choreographers.
“As for tours, there’s a busy autumn ahead of the Prague Chamber Ballet,” says Ladislava Jandová, the company’s director. “Besides tours of Bohemia, including places such as Hradec Králové, Česká Lípa or Třeboň, we prepare two big international tours. From 2 to 5 November we will participate in the Incheon Contemporary Dance Festival in Soul with the new duet Metamorphic and with Linda Svidró giving a contemporary dance workshop. In late November, the Prague Chamber Ballet will present the same choreography in collaboration with the Ecuador Nacional de Danza Company at the great International Festival of Performing Arts of Loja in Ecuador.”
The second premiere of the season will be held on 22 October 2017 in the Vinohrady Theatre, Prague. The choreographer Tomáš Rychetský is working on a new 40-minut piece called Requiem za nekonečno (Requiem for Infinity). The piece aims at narrating a concrete human story over the time, all within the spiritual space of Antonín Dvořák’s Requiem. Although Requiem is essentially a mess for the dead, in Rychetský’s version it is more an expression of the belief that life energy cannot easily disappear, that it just transforms into something else and it is transmitted further and similarly to dance, it can have many faces.
The dance story touches questions that lie between the end and beginning of life. Part of the evening will also be Rychetský’s renewed choreography Nevyřčené ticho (Unspoken Silence). The third premiere, consisting of new works by Jiří Pokorný and Jiří Timulák, will be presented on 29 April 2018 in the Vinohrady Theatre.
