2019 SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN – DEADLINE: 18TH NOVEMBER 2018 Be Festival

Let’s Dance by VerTeDance (Czech Republic) – 30 min

Contemporary dance is often denigrated and accused of being self righteous, impenetrable even, begging the question, how can it be explained? With tongue firmly in cheek, director Petra Tejnorová takes charge, with a cast of five, in writing the ‘manual for anxious audiences’ offering guidance about how to overcome your ‘contemporary’ fears. Emblazoned with irony, the show plays with the audience whether on the fence or initiated. VerTeDance were created in 2004 in Prague and with previous work Correction, they won the 2015 BE FESTIVAL audience award.
