What captures your attention here and now, and what engages the attention of other children and adults in the audience? Welcome to a shared space where everybody is equal, being both creators and spectators at the same time, children and adults alike. Neényi is not only about the act of creation shared between the audience and the artists. Above all, it conveys a hope to revive the social value of caring for each other across generations. Neényi is about being together, kindness, compassion, social justice, collaboration and rest. It attempts to reconnect the world of families with the world of childfree people, the world of the little ones with the world of adults and ideally, the world of women with the world of men. Mutual understanding and awareness require our full presence.


The performance will be guided by: dancer and choreographer Barbora Látalová, dancer and teacher Anna Línová, dramaturge and director Marika Smreková, set designer Lenka Jabůrková, musician and teacher Anna Romanovská, performer and musician Pasi Mäkelä. 

A sensory performance for toddlers, parents, grandparents and non-parents. The performance is suitable for children 1-3 years old.

Neényi performances in June will also be visited by foreign guests of the Prague Quadrennial /TANEC PRAHA festival as spectators or participants. We believe that this will not affect the unique atmosphere of the performance and you will be able to fully enjoy it. Thank you for your understanding.
