Paradiso

Absolute happiness? There is no such thing. Like hell, paradise is not a place but a state of mind. Movement and the pure joy of it. The feeling of omnipotence. The moment when the energy of the stars and the universe spikes. A single second is enough for you to know. It is over within an eye's wink. Pleasure, indulgence, passion, joy and charm.

'A little less conversation, a little more action please.'
Elvis Presley

The piece is produced by 420PEOPLE z.s. in co-operation with Jatka78, the National Theatre in Prague and the festival Montpellier Danse within a residency offered at Agora, cité internationale de la danse. The activities of 420PEOPLE are supported with a 1.050.000 Kč subsidy in 2016 from the City of Prague and by grants from the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and the Foundation BNP Paribas.

About the company

Seven years after the first show in Prague, 420PEOPLE are an established and sought after label both in the Czech Republic and abroad. To the Czech public they have mediated the work of important names of the international scene, from Kylián to Naharin, from Teshigawara to Van den Broek. The focal point of the company's activities remains the original creation of the founding tandem Václav Kuneš and Nataša Novotná, artists insisting on exceptional level of dance interpretation and professionalism.
