The contemporary dance group 420PEOPLE, named after the Czech country code, was founded by Václav Kuneš and Nataša Novotná at the turn of the years 2007/2008, after they returned home from one of the most prestigious dance theatres - Jiří Kylián's Nederlands Dans Theater. The tandem’s vision to build their own contemporary dance group in Prague bring the brand 420PEOPLE into being. The company has now been a stable player on the Czech and international theatre and dance scene for 15 years.
420PEOPLE is a fusion of outstanding dance quality, professionalism, sophisticated playfulness and true daringness in presenting a sheer vocabulary of contemporary dance, improvisation as an inherent part of creation and an unorthodox dialogue with the audience in the form of Q and A sessions, workshops and other activities.

WHY THINGS GO WRONG
Studio Maiselovka | 19:30
The premiere of the performance “Why things go wrong”, choreographed by Sylva Šafková and performed by the duo of dancers Michal Heriban and Viktor Konvalinka, was created exclusively for Studio Maiselovka. It raises, through contemporary dance, the unique theme of the (un)moral, ethically challenging nature of human behaviour, which, although often overlooked, seriously affects the lives of everyone around us.

How well do we know K. H. Mácha's legendary poem May? It seems like all of us Czechs are able to recall its first lines. Is that really all? And if so, is that enough? Are we aware of its content, details, its atmosphere and universal character?

the new music and dance project by 420PEOPLE and the BERG Orchestra "INspiraCe".
The unique symbiosis of Sylva Šafková's choreography and Tomáš Reindl's music underscores the interaction of dancers and musicians, in which there is also room for improvisation. The principles took inspiration from the cult composition In C by the American minimalist Terry Riley, transforming it into an original new composition. Minimalism and repetitiveness are also reflected in the imaginative and orderly scenography of Anna Chrtková.
The project was created based on the exclusive collaboration of the dance ensemble 420PEOPLE, the BERG Orchestra and the Archa Theatre.
