28 May LADY MACBETH OF THE MTSENSK DISTRICT
For the first time, as the Czech première, we presented three noteworthy choreographies with a tinge of the existentialistic overtone. Humpback Runner, Alice and Wings of Wax.
Jiří Pokorný, the choreographer of the dance play Humpback Runner, is one of the most successful Czech dancers and in the recent years also one of the most successful choreographers coming from “the Kylian's hatchery”. He spent a long time in Nederlands Dans Theater, for several years he had been dancing in the dance company Kidd Pivot of the Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite and in the recent years, he has been more intensively dedicated to his own work.
Jiří has found the inspiration for his choreography Humpback Runner in the work of Hieronymus Bosch, a famous painter of the middle ages, whose fanciful vision of the hell and paradise has influenced spiritually oriented works for centuries. Pokorný uses the visual inspiration as the opportunity to perform fanciful situations evoking critical moments of human destinies and their metamorphoses.
The Humpback Runner (in the Czech language Útěk Obra) is the name of the dance play, which was created in 2016 for the junior company Nederlands Dans Theater 2, created by Jiří Kylián. Its performance is the unique opportunity to transfer the work created for the young and dynamic company NTD 2 to Ostrava.
