The Czech Dance Platform’s International Jury has decided to award three creations that have elicited the strongest response while confirming the diversity of the Czech dance scene: Dis pla y by Jitka Čechová and Tereza Lenerová
, Call Alice by Tereza Ondrová and Francesca Foscarini
 a Celestial Odyssey by Andrea Miltnerová, Monika Knoblochová and Jan Komárek

The award of Česká centra/Czech Centres goes to Lucia Kašiarová for an original performance in her piece Multividual.

The jury’s Special Mention goes to Monika Knoblochová, the harpsichordist in Celestial Odyssey.

 The Spectators' Award then to Witness by Vera Ondrasikova & Kolektiv

Thank you for being with us, let’s keep reflecting on the Czech dance scene.


The Dramaturgical Council, which in 2022 was composed of Marta Ljubková, Markéta Málková, Jitka Pavlišová, Nina Vangeli (senior member) and Yvona Kreuzmannová & Markéta Perroud (sharing one vote), had the difficult task of selecting only a limited number of works from more than 40 entries. They agreed on seven productions and a group of young critics selected three other works for the program.
