Private guide in Prague


The International Festival of Contemporary Dance and Movement Theatre TANEC PRAHA, has successfully developed and expanded throughout the 90’s. Increasing public and media interest enabled Czech audiences to gain a better understanding of the difference between traditional ballet and progressive, experimental dance, which crosses the borders between artistic  contemporary disciplines.
Dramaturgy of  the Festival is based on high quality level of artists (technically as well as artistically) sharing big names of dance world with not so well known but every time surprising, innovative artists from all over the world.
The whole festival is usually anticipated by the Czech Dance Platform, during which foreign partners will help to select Czech artists for the whole year project and also the site-specific work for different areas of Prague are agreed in details. Such an accompanying program helps to develop long-term projects of international co-production to be able to present new experimental work during the whole season especially in the new dance venue Ponec.

Prague Dance achieved extraordinary public interest primarily due to hosting prestigious bodies from around the world. Over the twenty years of its existence Czech introduced to the public the real world's top dance field, starting with Martha Graham (USA), Merce Cunningham (USA), Bill T. Jones (USA), continues Jiří Kylián (NL) and a number of his pupils and ending as Maguy Marin (F), Joseph Nadja (F), Ohad Naharin (ISR), Marie Chouinard (CAN) and the renowned files from Taiwan (Cloud Gate Dance Theatre), Spain (Compania Nacional de Danza), Switzerland (Ballet du Grand Théatre de Geneve) and others.¨


In addition to the events of the season – the performances by Sasha Waltz & Guests and Batsheva Dance Company – you can also look forward to young artists from the EUROPEAN DANCE LABS, the documentary performance by Olga de Soto entitled An Introduction, Austrian choreographic stage film Deep Dish, the world premiere of a piece by Tereza Ondrová and Peter Šavel in a co-production with Tanec Praha poetically called As Long As Holding Hands, or fantastic Belgian duo Mossoux-Bonté with the performance Histoire de l'imposture.
