Profile

Pulsar association is a platform that realizes dance performances in the field of contemporary dance created on the basis of a clearly chosen dramaturgy. The intention of Pulsar is to artistically process socially engaged themes, to find new dance expressions for them. In addition to this main activity, Pulsar is engaged in the creation of new artistic and artistic-professional formats, through which it explores new artistic possibilities. These formats allow to develop artistic work in close connection with the audience. It also creates facilities for artists invited to create original work and last season worked with young dance makers, providing them with artistic and production facilities to explore their own expression and broaden their social and philosophical outlook. 

 

Pulsar is currently formed by Honza Malík and Tereza Krčálová. Among the major undertakings that innovatively approach the situation on the dance scene and strengthen the progressive development of the dance field are: conferences and performances 30 years of dance The Next Promises, artistic meetings Catch Reality! 1-6, the interdisciplinary conference The Role of the Artist Today, the miniseries Dance Through the Camera's Eye, the experiment dis pla y, the project for ´Innovation and Art´ Absolutely Unacceptable! part I and II, the project for emerging artists Unestablished, the experimental interdisciplinary event Be provoked by dance!, the on.line road.talk series Choreographer in the Ring 1st-6th round, the framework programme for the 30th anniversary of the Duncan Centre).

 

Pulsar was founded at the turn of 2016/2017 by Honza Malík and Michal Záhora. Originally, the group functioned as a platform for one choreographer. Already then, works were created that dealt with selected social themes in their spiritual, philosophical and social complexity, and a variety of choreographic practices emerged. These included works such as Pulsar, Concert for HER, Anniversary - one hundred years of Czech statehood, Celebration - a dance pilgrimage through the countryside. In 2019, Michal Záhora began to collaborate artistically with Tereza Krčálová. The performances Generation X and The End´s Turnabout (Europa towards Omega Point) were based on dramaturgically developed research.

 

Pulsar continuously develops cooperation with foreign countries. In addition to presenting works outside the Czech Republic (besides neighbouring countries, Croatia, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, USA, UK), it tries to create new concepts of artistic cooperation with foreign artists. 

 

In 2023, we prepare, we create:

Projects

A performance that is not a performance, but a world of projections.

Today we are exposed to many pressures and realities that cannot be ignored: war, inflation eating into our savings, high energy prices. We have been taught not to admit anything that upsets us - it is important to function to the fullest! We go into protective mode: we stockpile, we build a bunker, we isolate ourselves. But then, in this solitude of ours, unverbalized emotions begin to accumulate. And they gradually start to roll over us. Until one day we realise that our intimate, friendly and professional relationships are breaking down. And there's nothing we can do about it.  

The dance and theatre project presents a new artistic format based on sharing, which is a reaction to the tendency to isolate oneself and at the same time to the psychology of the viewer's perception. Through a composed artistic form and the guidance of a presenter, this event allows the viewer to experience and understand how they and their surroundings experience what is currently happening. The performance is based on the heightened perception of the contemporary viewer, which the author used as an opportunity to take the viewer into the play. Under his guidance, the viewer himself begins to determine what he wants to experience in relation to the perception of the artwork, whether he wants to co-create it through his own experience, and what key (or instruction) he wants to find in it for himself.
