(*1983)
Choreographer, dancer, teacher

As far as choreography is concerned, Tereza ranks among dance conceptualists, which was clearly demonstrated in her solo choreography Swish with the Dance Production 2017 Award from the Czech Dance Platform jury. It is inspired by usual gestures, everyday movement routine, in which she finds a strong metaphoric potential.

In conveying woman’s emotions in the course of her life, Tereza Hradilková employed a popular and basic girl’s game – rope skipping. Thus, she created a great stage metaphor as well as conditions for her physically demanding performance.
