Who we are

We are involved in the formation and creation of new progressive dance works, especially as
a co-producer. We reach children and young audiences and we pay close attention to
creating interactive activities for schools and families. We give space to Czech artists, but
also extend the possibilities of international cooperation. We provide feedback to local artists.
We belong to the Žižkov community and our program, accessible to all regardless of age and
nationality, contributes to the revival of culture in Prague 3. Besides dance, we are open to
other forms of contemporary live art.

The PONEC Theatre is the home stage of the TANEC PRAHA Festival and the Czech
Dance Platform.Since 2015, PONEC is part of the prestigious EDN – European Dancehouse Network. Of
crucial importance for the creation of the theatre's own productions as well as the
development of work with the audience is the current involvement in the European project Be
SpectACTive! (2015 – 2018) and Be SpectACTive! 2 (2019 – 2022).

PONEC – the dance venue is operated by Tanec Praha z. ú. under a 25-year lease
agreement with the District of Prague 3, valid until 2023, with the financial support of the City
of Prague, the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, the District of Prague 3 and
numerous other partners.
