Czech Showcase @ Fringe: 420PEOPLE - Wind-Up

Czech dance in its ultimate form. Inspired by energy’s accumulation and explosion, Prague’s 420PEOPLE deliver a dynamic sextet made of ferocious energy, finest movement and original music. Labelled as 'a killer show' by audiences. In collaboration with musician Amos Ben-Tal, choreographer Václav Kuneš and his company 420PEOPLE indulge in contemporary dance full of energy, a torrent of images and witty, repetitive action dealing with the motive of memories of the past.

Choreography: Václav Kuneš
Music: Amos Ben-Tal
Lights: Jan Mlčoch
video: Petr Polák, Jaroslav Bláha - Studio Petrohrad
Dancers:  Zuzana Herényiová, Václav Kuneš, Jussi Nousiainen, Nataša Novotná, Milan Odstrčil, Alexandr Volný
