KoresponDance is an international festival of contemporary dance, motion theatre, and contemporary circus, which is going to take place for the eighth time in Žďár nad Sázavou.

KoresponDance online is a set of nine movies with KoresponDance 2020 performances, which have been exclusively made for the world-wide audience in the outstanding chateau locations. And you can see some of the movies right at the festival!

In this complicated year full of changes, uncertainty, and postponing, we have decided to support Czech artists and save the summer festival KoresponDance 2020 in the time when all festivals around us as well as those abroad kept canceling their programmes or postponed them to autumn or winter. To be able to guarantee the festival online at least, we have been preparing the concept and production of video recordings since spring. The shooting took place in May and June 2020 at the chateau in Žďár nad Sázavou, with two of the productions set in Prague. We carefully chose the specific places for shooting with each choreographer, cameraman Toni Laznik and technical director František Fabián. We adapted every production to the specific space in the chateau, thus we reveal those that are not normally accessible to the public. We hope we have added little mystery and new flavors to the recorded performances.
