19.3 PULSAR and introductory thematic interpretation by parish vicar Petr Vacík

Záhora's choreographic work has been developing since 2005, when he made his debut with the remarkable duet Synchronicity. His artistic direction, which was clear from the beginning, led to the pieces ResonanceOrbis pictusDiptychDevoidPulsarConcert for NI and Celebration, last year enriched by his focus on various and exceptional topics related to the 100th anniversary of Czech statehood. But in Anniversary too, the theme and centrepiece is humanity.

Pulsar is an opportunity to collaborate with the emerging dance generation. Anniversary, on the other hand, was co-created by dance artists with many years of dance as well as life experience. Take a look at two completely different performance concepts next to each other.

*

A human being as the most complicated and complex creation in the universe. We are cosmic runners, our bodies are created from stardust. Our source is still alive and vibrant, a cosmic lighthouse, the place from which we originally sprang – Pulsar.

Review

"There are works of art which ooze emotion and physicality that is almost palpable. Pulsar by Michal Záhora is different. Metaphysical. Analytic. Intangible. It has the character of a meditation, does not hit you in the heart, but mesmerizes your mind so that you leave the theatre with a strange feeling of lightness of being." D. Machová, tanecniaktuality.cz, 22 March 2017

"White on black has a mysterious symbolism in and of itself. The visual aspect of the scene is processed in costume and light design, supplemented and supported by ambient music created just like in Záhora's past works directly for the choreography. The long creative collaboration of Záhora and Natoli is undoubtedly evaluated in the mutual interconnectedness of music, movement and ideas as a great exchange of the final outcome, whose mission certainly goes beyond the borders of a regular dance production born from the conventions of artistic theatrical production." Z. Smugalová, Opera plus, 22 March 2017 

"The five dancers are on the same wavelength, so their concentration, cooperation and energy create an emotionally powerful impression. No doubt this is also thanks to the excellent synchronization of all the components, whether light design, music or sound." J. Soprová, Scena.cz, 3 April 2017
