Dance in general is the most complex matter. It includes human body, mind and spirit all at the same time. For that uniqueness to dance is to touch the life itself." M.Záhora

 

Pulsar association (founded in 2017) is a platform for realization of Michal Záhora’s creative work in the field of contemporary dance. The curator of the project is Honza Malík. Both artists were members of NANOHACH company (2004-2016). Firstly, the project is about creating new performances in all formats of contemporary dance work context. Another aim is to maintain a continual activity in the Czech Republic as well as show the performances abroad. The third aim of the project is to provide education on the professional, semi-professional and amateur level.

The association is supported in 2019 by:

Europe towards the Omega Point 

Dance performance based on voices of people around us and on teachings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit priest, palaeontologist and geologist

Are we able to guess Europe’s next development? Even though we have all the competencies: freedom and variety of alternatives, it seems we cannot move more than 1 millimetre further. Nothing happens. Nothing at all. But we have everything under control.

‘My vision of Europe was shadowed by the flight of a bird.’

Reviews: 

“Záhora‘s and Pulsar‘s intuition to touch reality in their new project proved to be a prophetic gesture. (…) I perceive this incompleteness as an unfinished Europe, disturbing as it always invites you to a circle dance in which there is no hierarchy. (…) …as a repetitive continuity of tradition which cannot stand today without its humble necessity to be updated. (…) The prophetic intuition is expressed with clarity; however, we often can only understand it when we have a certain distance.” K. Boháčová, 5. 11. 2020, Theatre Newspaper

„…Scenes that develop in front of the audience’s gaze like a film fast-forwarded attract the audience with their plasticity, with their purity, and with the cohesiveness of the interpreters presenting them. Distinctive music creates an atmosphere of ever-changing transformation. The performance does not lure you to analyse it, but rather to perceive it and experience it along with the performers.” L.Kocourková, 24. 9. 2020, Opera plus.cz

„…There is more often an effort to touch the neuralgic point of today (…) Dance might impact individuals who are usually resistant to it.” M.Magdová, A2 – 22/2020 

„…Záhora is one of the few Czech choreographers who are not afraid to open more difficult philosophical themes with an existential overlap (…). He creates intuitively, because his spirit calls for it, not because he wants to create trends or to satisfy his ego. He does not need to do so, because what he carries with him is a spiritual aspect of a higher and more original function of art.” Z.Smugalová, Taneční aktuality.cz, 30. 9. 2020
