WHEN THINGS GET OUT OF CONTROL, WE LOOK FOR A WAY OF TO FIXING THEM. THE PRODUCTION ABOUT TOLERANCE, WEAKNESS AND STRENGTH, DOUBT AND RESPECT, DESIRE TO CONTROL AND DESTRUCT IS BROUGHT BY LENKA VAGNEROVÁ & COMPANY DANCE THEATRE TO CELEBRATE ITS TENTH ANNIVERSARY.

The ability to exist in symbiosis with other creatures on the planet, the importance of respecting the value ​​of all beings, the uniqueness of species and the struggle to preserve them – these are the main themes of the production. The force and power of nature will always find their way and do what is necessary. Riders view human action through the eyes of birds. Of the ancient inhabitants of our planet, sentient, intelligent, free beings, shrouded in mythology. Of the silent observers of our destinies. We had learnt from them, admired them and worshipped them. Then we forgot. Birds are the only surviving group of dinosaurs. They were here before us and they will be here long after us.

The Riders production is a "remake" of or sequel to the project Jezdci, which was at the birth of the Lenka Vagnerová & Company ten years ago as its pilot production.

"Now that we have learned to fly the air like birds, swim under water like fish, we lack one thing – to learn to live on earth as human beings." George Bernard Shaw
