Prague-New York Effects - OPEN REHEARSAL

Czech Center’s flagship project! Attend an open rehearsal for The Third Effect with Helga Davis & Jiří Bartovanec to see their work in progress.


Czech Center New York’s flagship project in 2016 is entitled Prague-New York Effects and it epitomizes our mission towards creating enduring transatlantic collaborations. This project brings renowned Czech and American artists together, unifying them in the common dialogue of the creative process to birth original performance duets. These performances have their world premieres in both countries.

The project is supported by Petr Gandalovič, Czech Ambassador to the United States and Andrew Schapiro, United States Ambassador to the Czech Republic who endorses this vibrant cultural exchange.

Prague-New York Effects, First Effect, featured Tendayi Kuumba and Lenka Dusilová who garnered impressive media coverage in both New York and Prague.

On April 21, 2016, 7PM  the World Premiere of the Second Effect featured the phenomenal talents of Petr Zuska - Artistic Director of Czech National Ballet and Jen Shyu –multi instrumentalist, jazz vocalist, composer & dancer.

The Third Effect features Helga Davis actress, singer, and Jiří Bartovanec –Czech dancer & choreographer who will create an original performance duet.

Under the guidance of the program director of Czech Center New York, Miřenka Čechová, they will perform their ground breaking collaboration at JACK, Brooklyn after their residency at Czech Center New York in April as part of the Thomas M. Messer Bohemian Creative Hub.
