A Discussion with Dance: The region between the vampire and the werewolf

Dance philosopher and critic Nina Vangeli is featuring the character of the contemporary dance and motion theatre in Bohemia against the background of the spirit and mythological dreaming of Central Europe.

 

“The region between the vampire and the werewolf” – this is how I term Central Europe.
– Dance is the art of the body in space; with the geographic area, the shape of the landscape, its plasticity, its enclosedness or openness, its color shades, the high or low sky above the land having an effect on the character of dance. And it does not only concern the geographic but also the emotional space, the inner substance of the landscape. The emotional space of the region is formed by historical traumas, as well as myths and legends, and is also moulded by the nature of the climate, which influences the state of mind and expression of the dancers, the shapes and moods of dance.”

Dance philosopher and critic Nina Vangeli  is featuring the character of the contemporary dance and motion theatre in Bohemia against the background of the spirit and mythological dreaming of Central Europe.
She will be accompanied by dancer and emerging choreographer Jiří Bartovanec.
