 The contemporary dance theatre ensemble Lenka Vagnerová & Company was founded in 2012 by choreographer and director Lenka Vagnerová.  

Every year, the ensemble creates new progressive authors' productions that carry elements of dance, physical, puppet and dramatic theatre. Through its activity it participates in the systematic development of the genre of dance theatre on domestic and world stages. 

Existential questions, the urgency of human relationships to other beings and surroundings, play with reality and fantasy are characteristic for the production of the ensemble. Lenka puts emphasis on the precision of theatre situations, movement qualities, supports the individuality of performers, uses the strength and dynamics of the group, looks for physical possibilities and movement limits of one's own body. Emotions, physical action, passion, risk, conflict, harmony and intuition are and have always been part of Lenka's original dance and theatrical language. 

 

The ensemble brings together outstanding artists such as: dancers, actors, musicians, visual artists, offers professional educational background, provides residences and internships, gives space to new theatrical forms and connects outstanding artists and creators. 

Lenka Vagnerová regularly runs workshops and teaches her dance method "Talk Through Your Body" in dance ensembles, theatres and schools in the international field. 

 

The ensemble with its performances gathered during its existence a number of significant awards and nominations both in the Czech Republic and abroad, e.g.: Herald Angel Award / The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Best Dance Performance / The Singapore Fringe Festival, The City of Pilsen Award / Skupova Pilsen International Festival, Dance Performance of the Year, Audience Award, Dancer of the Year / Czech Dance Platform Festival, Total Theatre Award Nomination / Edinburgh Fringe Festival, several Thalia Awards, etc. 

ABOUT US

„Lenka Vagnerová a fabulous dancer and a great choreographic talent. 

She has attained a refined physical expression owing to her bold sense of theatre and urge to voice her opinion of substantial issues – the question of power, the question of the co-existence between humans and other natural beings. She excels in finding subjects and creating sceneries, as well as coming up with original movement variations, and, what is more, she possesses a great sense of dynamics and humour.

She has confirmed her reputation as the most gifted young Czech choreographer.“ (Nina Vangeli, New York, Master Lecture about Czech Dance 2016)
