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

A “taxon” is a designation for a group of specific organisms that have common specifications. A new taxon evaluates whether or not it is an advantage to learn to live with a new body or to get rid of it. Its mutating body, which is just learning to walk, does not know its possibilities. We follow the process of transformation, as if the body transforms like an open source code. The new creature is locked within the limits of its development and slowly subdues the prostheses that "nature" has given it. For now, it can only touch the verticality.


Tereza Lenerová graduated from The Theaterschool Amsterdam. She gained experience as a dancer with various choreographers in the Czech Republic and abroad.

Her next work Don't Stop received special jury recognition at the Czech Dance Platform 2019 and is part of the Aerowaves Twenty21 prestigious selection. In 2021, she introduced choreographies dis pla y, which she created together with Jitka Čechová, and There Is a Sense of Being which follows the performance series Taxon.
