REVIEWS:

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.  

(TANČNÍ AKTUALITY / LUCIE DERCSÉNYIOVÁ / 8.11.2016) 


“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 production is comprised of so many visually striking images, it actually evokes instead a work of fine art. As is now typical of Lenka Vagnerová’s works, scenes transform their dynamic and we await very energetic outputs, alternating lyrical scenes, but also comic ones.

“The symbols accumulate, intertwine. No subject is only on the stage as itself. ”    

“The music of Ivan Acher also adds to the great diversity. Creaking noises resembling frozen doorposts and the feel of the wind on the bare plains are alternated by accordion or cheerful Italian song, there are sounds of strings and harmonium, the music includes minimalism and a dramatically swollen area. ” 
“Many scenes stay in the memory, a French dancer above all due to her fragility, thanks to which she also becomes the ideal dance partner, who seems ethereal in the man’s hands.”
“There is an enormous amount that is hidden in this production.” 
“The production gradually draws the viewer into another world and as good theatre it arouses actual emotions, feelings of insecurity and fear, but also laughter.” 
(OPERA PLUS / LUCIE KOCOURKOVÁ / 4.11.2016 / 100 %)


“The new work from our most talented choreographer Lenka Vagnerová”   “Her feeling is dramatic, dynamic, emotional.”    

As well as dance she has placed realistic moments in the production text which make the dance expression credible. Conjoining with the lyrics by Hrubín is the theme of pain and terror of the mother, whose child is in mortal danger -  whose child is in crisis. In the text and the dance this danger is expressed by the idea (phobia) of Herod’s  soldier.  
The glass ball in the middle of a Caravaggio shadowland evokes a Christian symbolism. 
“The marvellous subject of Mary in the world, so frequent in old sculpture and painting, in this production comes physically to life. It is a brilliant metaphor. If any audience were to miss this it would be a tragedy, it’s a great metaphor! ”  
(TANEČNÍ ZÓNA / NINA VANGELI / 2016)


“The hour-long production is literally filled with choreographic and theatrical ideas.”  
Choreographically and directorially the entire production is beyond criticism. The music and lighting design enforce the appropriate emotions and emphasise the historical link.   
(TANEČNÍ MAGAZÍN / MICHAL STEIN / 2016) 


“The dynamic of the production has a very broad context, fragility meets the desire to destroy so that it immediately returns strengthened by the determination to preserve life, a determination powered by love for the being that is only waiting for its great entrance into life.”   
(TANEČNÍ ZÓNA / JAKUB NOVÁK / 2016)

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 19.5. and 20.5. 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"
