Prague New York Effect 8

 

 


RSVP

Prague-New York Effects is a multi-genre project that connects well-established artists from diverse disciplines. The individuals chosen are ones who seek new influnces and inspirationn for the enrichment of their existing practices. Given a limited amount of time, artists of differing backgrounds and artistic mediums are paired to engage in a shared dialogue through creation. This dialogue consists of the interwining of a variety of topics thorught their mutual rehearsal process. The positive response of the media, as well as that of the general public, has proven the relevance of these artistic collaborations which enrich cross-cultrual dialogue on both sides of the Atlantic.

Czech Center New York provides residence and a space for showcasing these works in progress. The projects subsequently contine to other venues and lcoations in New York, Washington D.C., and other Czech cities, and are accentuated by educational workships and talk-backs given by the artists.

Věra Ondrašíková and Ikue Mori will perform.

A meeting of American musician Ikue Mori and Czech dancer and choreographer Věra Ondrašíková results in a joint performance. Within three days both performers will explore the themes and inspiration that connect their thoughts and creative experiences, bringing them closer than ever. Afterwards they will no longer be divided by the ocean, age difference, and life experience. How close can we become to new people? How often have we been pushed away from our loved ones?
