The TANEC PRAHA 2024 Festival takes place under the auspices of the President of the Czech Republic Petr Pavel.

The latest project of the contemporary dance company 420PEOPLE celebrates the intergenerational dialogue between dancers. It brings a unique yet intimate look at the pinnacle of the performers' dance careers after 42 years. As the first premiere of the 42+PEOPLE project, which brings together all the values of contemporary dance, the company presented the choreography WHERE by Václav Kuneš. 

WHERE features a pair of Czech dancers aged 42+. Václav Kuneš and Helena Arenbergerová, who won the Thalia Award 2023 for her solo role in the performance, will open the pilot edition.

"Our choreographic union does not bring a common story, but plays out the intimacy of each of us in a purely personal dance statement. Without clichés. Without necessary annotations. Nevertheless, it evokes a very familiar Renaissance image full of elusive tension between stable and scattered lives, tension in the proximity of two strangers... And increasingly tangible through contemporary dance," says Václav Kuneš, choreographer, dancer and artistic director of 420PEOPLE.
