We are thrilled to share that FANNY BARROUQUÉRE was nominated in wider nomination for THALIA AWARD for her role in THE LEŠANY CRIB.
Josef and Marie climb out frm the wire surf, their release however only lasts an instant, when suddenly in front of them expands the mesh across which they cannot pass – this moment brings up associations with emigrants despairingly trying to head across the sea with their children to Europe.
Lenka Vagnerová has created in Lešanská crib images full of symbolism and associations. Dark sceneries appear before the audience of frenzied dreams and depressing reality.
A dance geyser whirls forward in a stormy then calm tempo and keeps you in its grip. Light, dark, dancers and things leave behind them darkening shadows, becoming an essential part of the visually thrilling images which Vagnerová knows how to capture in the minutest detail. It seems that in Lešanská crib nothing is a work of chance.
“A work has appeared so imaginative and complex and of such ingenuity that a single viewing is not sufficient for the audience to absorb all its many features.”
“The symbols accumulate, intertwine. No subject is only on the stage as itself. ”
“The new work from our most talented choreographer Lenka Vagnerová” “Her feeling is dramatic, dynamic, emotional.”

Karolina Plicková, World andTheatre
Vagnerová’s Gossip, whose English title is close toincantation and upon being spoken hisses unpleasantly in a serpentine way, is achangeable, lively and moving dance huddle, which can induce nausea as in atrip on a roller coaster. It is speculated how an outsider can become anaggressor, while still retaining lightness, wit and anunforced street zest. It combines dance, kinetic, puppet and dramatic theatrein a complex, almost total form, which with the minimum of scenographic aidscreates images so imaginative that we can have the feeling as if we weresitting in the cinema with 3-D glasses over our eyes – obviously with theadvantage that we are witnessing the energy of live dancers. Everyone gives anoutstanding performance: they are inscrutable and dangerous, they have to bealways on their guard, because a potential attacker might ambush at any time.
GOSSIP on 24.4. 19:30 La Fabrika
THE JURY’S VOICE
Olga Fraitová (member of the spectator jury): GOSSIP is dance theatre par excellence and definitely a standout for the Platform’s Spectator Jury. As always with Lenka Vágnerová, it is pure joy to watch dancers who get under her choreographic control. Andrea Opavská’s reputation is without question, in this case her entourage is made of fresh charismatic faces lead by the contortionist Fanny Barrouquére. Lenka Vágnerová turned director, she has produced a theatre form, a jigsaw that perfectly falls into place, including Ivan Acher’s music and Jakub Kopecký’s set designs. Its poetics reminds me of Peeping Tom. Visually flawless, tiny little cruel in the undercurrents.
Nina Vangeli visit New York last Year. We are bringing transcipt of her Master Lecture about Czech Dance. "Dance in the region between the vampire and the werewolf"
