Věra Ondrašíková and Collective - GUIDE

Choreographer Věra Ondrašíková joins forces with digital artist Dan Gregor and musician Filip Míšek, to create an experience that dissolves the boundaries of time, which become as ephemeral as the elements that comprise the show – sound, movement, and light. The show has won three different awards at Czech Dance Platform (2016).

What if one day we could look back at our life, would there be things we might want to do differently? Would we be able to avoid what we now see as mistakes? If we could ask for advice, would we have any such questions? An audiovisual piece in which back then and now become one.

In a magical audiovisual show for all ages, a screen of light and smoke spreads across a dark empty stage. As it glides through the space, its movements create a mesmerizing landscape of two worlds – in one we see a young dancer and in the other – his older doppelganger. The two move through space and time, trying to come closer to one another in order to touch the past and change it.

Using original artistic language, Guide turns the spotlight on sensations and questions concerning the decisions we make, placing them in a playful setting and giving them a spectacular expression that flows freely between the past, future, and present.

The piece was awarded by three prestigious awards at the Czech Dance Platform 2016:
