The international project Rail2Dance, which includes theater partners from Germany Die Theater Chemnitz, Slovenia PTL – Plesni Theatre Ljubljana, Sweden Norrlandsoperan and Finland Tanssiteatteri MD, takes public space and the codes of behavior that define these spaces as its central theme. With the help of dance movements, collective choreographies, dance pictures and games, the dancers of the project change and transform the codified rules of behavior determined for a certain space. The creators of the project are interested in places of passage and movement, such as railway stations, city squares and streets, and public transport. With dance interventions in public space, they not only reflect everyday practices in public spaces, but also question the meaning of community, which is increasingly disappearing in the modern world.

More than just Theatre

A residential project that ProFitArt announces together with partners – The Theaterfestival Schwindelfrei and KD Mlejn. For the residency, we will select five artists from an open call (it can be individuals, but also ensembles), on the basis of which we will create space to organize five regular residencies at the European level, connect German and Czech professional artists and bring them to Prague’s progressive cultural center.

During one three-week residency, there will be six joint dance and movement training sessions for artists, networking with a presentation of creative works, a visit to Czech performances, work on selected concepts for future productions, open rehearsals for invited guests and a final public presentation, which will be conceived as a full-fledged performance with technical, production and PR support, and an interpreted postshow talk with the audience.
