Special Edition 2019 is on sale
On Friday 18 October, the Special Edition 2019 of Czech Dance News (Taneční aktuality) has been published. The book will be launched on 30 October at the Centre for contemporary art DOX in Prague, after the performance Refuge of Farm in the Cave Company. The lauch will be part of a meeting with Dr. Dadja Altenburg-Kohl, art collector, filantropist and dance lover, who will also become the "godmother" of the publication.
The theme of the issue is “Dance and Movement Arts in Czech Regions”. The editorial team have focused on cultural life outside the capital – the venues, festivals and personalities who cultivate ballet, contemporary dance, pantomime, new circus and crossover genres in the local regions. Such content is supposed to increase the readers’ awareness of cultural events across the country and thus encourage audience mobility. The 2019 issue is bilingual (Czech and English), so it can serve to international promotion of Czech art in regional centres.
The coordinator of the project, Petra Dotlačilová, explained: “It was quite a challenge to choose from the variety of events taking place in the field of movement art throughout the Czech Republic – it only indicates how vital the scene is, even outside Prague. The texts often show the positive development in the quality and quantity of dance creations, the increasing interest of spectators and the drive of those people who have merit in the cultivation of art in the local regions.”
Special Edition 2019 is completed with the traditional overview of the past season in the domains of ballet, contemporary dance, new circus and nonverbal theatre.
Via Czech Centres, Special Edition 2019 will travel to 22 countries around the world.
Special Edition 2019 is available in the network of partner bookshops, dance shops and theatres, as well as online at Tanecniaktuality.cz
