Jana Stárková, Lukas Blaha, Ondřej Menoušek

 

Jana Stárková is currently completing a Master's program in Dramaturgy at the Department of Alternative and Puppet Theatre under the guidance of Jiří Havelka. In addition to movement and dance theatre, she also engages in interventions in public space and experimental performances (e.g. The Dog Project). One of her latest projects is the dance film Oměj, which deals with communication between people and the city. Together with Ondřej Menoušek she is a member of the Špatné divadlo (Bad Theatre) group.

Lukas Blaha is an actor, dancer, juggler and one of the founding members of new circus group Cink Cink Cirk. On the Czech scene he has worked with groups such as Tantehorse and Spitfire Company. In his work he develops juggling and object manipulation and its synthesis with movement, dance and theatre. While a student at the Music and Dance Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (HAMU) he completed internships at Die Etage in Berlin and at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona. He and director Jana Stárková collaborated on the Dó project, which premiered on 24 May 2018.

Ondřej Menoušek is a scenographer and performer studying at the Department of Alternative and Puppet Theatre at the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (DAMU) since 2016. During his studies he created projects on the border of object and puppet theatre, e.g. Thank you спаси́бо – a post-apocalyptic performance with objects or the tale of Hansel and Gretel. Among other things, he also created the stage design for a student production of Sea of Peace at the Disk Theatre. He is currently engaged in the development of a spiritual movement activity called selfie chi.
