Taneční Aktuality prepares Special Edition 2019
The Taneční aktuality editorial team is preparing a new issue of Taneční aktuality - Special Edition 2019, building upon last year’s pilot.
Special Edition 2018, subtitled “Czech Dance Anniversaries”, received immediate positive response at home as well as abroad. The theme of the second issue, to be be launched in September 2019, is “Dance and Movement Art in Czech Regions.” The Taneční aktuality 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 will be bilingual (Czech and English), so it can serve to international promotion of Czech art in regional centres.
The coordinator of the project, Petra Dotlačilová, explains: “It was quite difficult 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,”
The Taneční aktuality editors are currently putting the finishing touches on the reports, interviews and other articles representing the selection. Special Edition 2019 will come complete with the traditional overview of the past season in the domains of ballet, contemporary dance, new circus and nonverbal theatre. The readers can also look forward to Martina Koželuhová’s attractive visual design. The cover features Anna Rasmussen’s photo from the production of Vzlety a pády, more precisely from Jiří Pokorný’s choreography The Humpback Runner which premiered in Ostrava’s National Moravian-Silesian Theatre last season.
Special Edition 2019 will be available in the network of partner bookshops, dance shops and theatres, soon to be listed on the Taneční aktuality website. Via Czech Centres, Special Edition 2019 will travel to 22 countries around the world. You can order the issue online right now – you will get it as soon as arrives from the print centre.
