Tereza Hradilková found inspiration for the physically demanding challenge that Swish undoubtedly is when working on the dance film Beating. Fascinated by the ease with which the boxers jump over the rope, their rhythm and the interplay of their hands and feet, she started exploring her own boundaries. The jump rope is more than just a children's game; it also symbolizes ambition, desire for performance, self-improvement. "Do you skip over yourself, go beyond your borders, or are you trapped in a repeating circle that you cannot escape?" asks the performer, whose work won the Dance Production of the Year award in 2017.
