Contemporary dance / Community
PRIMA is a laboratory, a participatory dance performance and a discussion all in one. Leaving the stage for the first time, Viktor Černický takes on the role of a choreographer and opens the space for local communities. A heterogenous group of non-professionals, in dialogue with dancers with a diverse background and experience, investigate the boundaries between the individual and the collective. Taking a radical turn from the concept of choreography as a finite composition, PRIMA is a dance work which liberates movement, fosters variability and unfolds anew each time we look at it: right here, right now.
PRIMA is a richly layered dance performance where experience of life and expressivity of art meet in one single electrifying moment. Emerging from the silence, the soundtrack is modest: the pulse of one’s own breath, the resonance of their steps, the friction of their hands. In Italian, prima stands for a premiere. For the group of people who - in the course of three days of rehearsal - create a unique community, each performance is the first one, always the premiere.
