    The independent Czech dance scene is rich and aesthetically diverse. Two interesting and quite different examples are presented here:

    In her solo “Tanec magnetické balerínky” (“Dance of the Magic Ballerina”) Andrea Miltnerová plays with the relation between a ballerina and a moth – between dance and nature. Her tutu poetically evokes the futile attempts of an insect to escape from our world.

    Andrea Miltnerová received dance training in her native London and moved to Prague in search of her Czech roots. She danced in the ballet of the Národní divadlo (National Theater) and currently works as a freelance choreographer and dancer. In 2011, she made a guest appearance at euro-scene Leipzig with the dance pieces “Pentimento” and “Fractured” (“Zerbrochen”).

    In “Orbis pictus” (lat.: The visible world) the Compagnie Nanohach explores the unconscious. A man and a woman try to explore the past through memory. Choreographers Michal Záhora and Lenka Bartůňková, together with renowned lighting designer Jan Komárek, created images of fascinating sensory illusions.

    The company was founded in 2004 by graduates of the Konzervatoř Duncan Centre Praha and is one of the most famous dance groups in Prague. It has worked with various domestic and foreign choreographers, including Nigel Charnock.
