How to dance a hundred years and not go crazy? ANNIVERSARY is a dance medley about the history of Czechoslovakia that may – or may not – remind of the recent centenary of the foundation of Czechoslovakia. Four dancers, four different bodies, four natures, plenty of familiar moments. History in motion, dance as a record of individual memory.  ANNIVERSARY is a production that emerged from the desire to celebrate the centenary of Czechoslovakia.

 

MICHAL ZÁHORA is a graduate of the Duncan Centre (2003). After his further studies in Stockholm he received contracts with the Norwegian national ensemble Carte Blanche, in Italy with the dance group of the choreographer Roberto Zappalà’s dance group, and with the British national ensemble Scottish Dance Theatre. Michal collaborated with a range of international and Slovak choreographers, such as Ohad Naharin, Amanda Miller, Ina Christel Johannessen, Adam Benjamin, or Eva Blažíčková.  It was largely as member of the company NANOHACH (2005 – 2016) that he created his own choreographies. His works include Synchronicity, Resonance, Orbis pictus, Diptych, DEVOID, Pulsar, Concert for NI (Koncert pro NI), and Festival (dance though the country) (Slavnost (taneční pouť krajinou). His productions were received with acclaim by critics and public at home and internationally. His choreographies and performing art earned him a range of nominations: Thália Prize, SAZKA Prize as discovery in dance, or the annual Opera plus Prize. In addition to choreography and performing, Michal also studies art and teaches. He gave seminars at London Contemporary Dance School – The Place, Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, The Space - Scottish School of Contemporary Dance. Between 2009 and 2013 he was director of the Duncan Centre and taught at The Janáček Conservatory in Ostrava.
