Body, building, land. All with a history. All with their own rhythm. All with their own effect on each other.

PONEC is a theatre in Prague standing on bedrock shaped by the Vltava River 20,000 years ago. A river that is now one kilometre away. Tereza has been dancing on that bedrock in PONEC for 25 years. The first solo she danced there was to a symphonic poem of the Vltava River. The choreography currently being researched for GEO is a topography of all these players and layers. Through this dance and with the help of a geophone, the ground below and the body above will guide us into awareness of the landscape we all inhabit. 

Temporary Collective

is a performance making group. Temporary Collective is dancer Tereza Ondrová and theatre director Petra Tejnorová. We are a duo, bringing together a team of creatives from various disciplines to make performances and encounters with the public. Our artistic process is built through dialog and in response to what challenges us, ranging in topics from sustainability, dealing with loss and geographic narrative, while also exploring the humorful and heartfelt. We are temporary because we do not hold fixed beliefs, preferring to welcome change and to practise reinvention and relations with the unknown.
