Correction – VerTeDance / Jiří Havelka / Clarinet Factory (Czech Republic) 30mins

Imagine a world where you can’t progress despite your best efforts to push forward.

Award winning contemporary dance company VerTeDance have created a beautifully poignant piece about our lack of freedom, reclusion and our power to make decisions. The cast weave around their own shadows whilst a live modern minimalist soundtrack by Clarinet Factory builds a fluid tension.

The company were created in 2004 and this piece won Best Dance Show 2014 at the Czech Dance Platform. Director Jiří Havelka has created many site specific theatre pieces, is a writer and also can be found presenting arts features on Czech TV. The show will be presented at Edinburgh Fringe 2015.
