V.4 DANCE FESTIVAL

Apr 19, 2018 7:30 PM - Apr 20, 2018

Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland come together for the V.4 Dance Festival to present some of their most daring dance-makers.

 

The V.4 Dance Festival brings together some of the boldest dance-makers from the The Visegrád Group (V4), the cultural and political alliance of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. They come together for this rare two-day festival of Central European contemporary dance. 

The festival offers a satisfying and intimate sampling of the fantastical and the hypnotic, the tongue-in-cheek and the playful humdrum of everyday, and features performances by Věra Ondrašíková (Czech Republic), Debris Company (Slovakia), Paweł Sakowicz (Poland) and Timothy and the Things (Hungary):

The V.4 Festival, curated by Laurie Uprichard in association with the Polish Cultural Institute New York and NYU Skirball, features one choreographer/company from each of the Visegrád Countries.

TICKETS:
Tickets are $20 for each show, or $35 for both evenings. Tickets can be purchased online HERE, by phone at 212.998.4941, or in person at the NYU Skirball Box Office, 566 LaGuardia Place at Washington Square: Tuesday-Saturday, 12:00–6:00 P.M.

Thursday, April 19th, 7:30PM

  • Věra Ondrašíková (Czech Republic) — Guide is a hypnotic audiovisual experience in which past and present become one. The two performers, in individual solos, sculpt the stage space with lasers to magical effect. Věra Ondrašíková has appeared as a guest performer at, among others, the Komedie Theatre in Prague, and at Festivals throughout Europe. She worked as a choreographer in residence in Mexico, Germany and France. She created the choreography for Havel's Antikódy at the National Theatre, which was also performed in Washington, Miami and New York in 2013. More information HERE
  • Paweł Sakowicz (Poland) — TOTAL is a solo created and performed by Sakowicz that speculates on dance virtuosity with a tongue in cheek approach. Sakowicz is a choreographer and dancer, working with artists and curators in Warsaw, London and Berlin. Sakowicz’s artistic development was supported by a scholarship awarded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland, a residency program run by the Institute of Music and Dance in Warsaw, and y the Alternative Dance Academy of the Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk.

Friday, April 20th, 7:30PM

  • Debris Company (Slovakia); Stanislava Vlčeková, Choreographer — Wow! is a fantastical duet exploring the history of humankind and its impact on the environment.
  • Timothy and the Things (Hungary); László Fülõp and Emese Cuhorka Choreographers — Your Mother at My Dooris a duet that plays with the idea of boredom and elapsed time spent on odd and humdrum activities. The two extraordinary performers interact with and confront each other in scenes that conjure up childhood foolishness enacted with adult emotions.
