YOU ARE HERE

YOU ARE HERE. A corporeal guide through presence, human relationships and other adventures

Is it possible to experience anything like a pure moment of presence? Or do we always carry our past, our prejudice, our plans and the culmination of our experience? Can we find the way in between the hectic production of meaning and the resignation to understand by perceiving? The way to experience time of different sort, when we simply watch dance. And do you think you see what I see?

The performance is a surprising derailment “for presence" that changes one's perspective and sensitivity to the world around us. The audience, together with the dancers, experiences the joy of creation while embarking on a thrilling adventure in which prejudices about dance (and other things too) are forgotten.

About the company

Temporary Collective was established in 2017 as new company of director Petra Tejnorová, producer Michal Somoš and dancer and choreographer Tereza Ondrová, who’ve created, both together and individually, number of documentary, dance and devised theatre pieces in last 10 years.

Projects of the company tend to be documentary sondes, uncovering the hidden, tabooed and burning issues in our society. Unlike to fency contemporary, we trust in ephemeral, temporary and unpredictable theatre experience.
