Now in its third season, the dance company is an independent non-state cultural institution that was founded by Slovak-American Robert Meöko. Speaking of today's younger generation and their close relationship to the Internet, Meöko says he wants to emphasise the unique joy and quality of live performances and the immediate contact between dancer and audience - something a computer screen will never be able to match.
Choreographer Daniel Ezralow from Los Angeles has choreographed original works for companies such as Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Paris Opera Ballet, Rudolf Nureyev and London Contemporary Dance company. He has also choreographed music videos for Sting, U2 and David Bowie.
The first part of the performance, called "Lady Lost Found," was inspired by Scottish and English folk culture from the turn of the century. The second dance, American choreographer Bill Young's "Bound To," is a light, abstract piece set against Cole Porter songs. "Familia Kalaönikov" is a postcard of a bizarre yet very human family performed to the tones of Balkan - Gypsy harmonies.
