Goats Horsing Around

How does a cow dance?

The production was inspired by Tereza’s actual cow Malina and Bára’s desire to be in one of Tereza’s books.

A cow is a huge animal, a warm panting body, a friend. Everyday life with a cow was such a strong experience for Tereza that the brush and paper ceased to be enough and she and Bára gradually began to dance a theatre show about and for the 

cow. Thus a duo of authors was formed, a dialogue between cow and person, performers and audience, artist and dancer.

Barbora Látalová - choreographer, dancer, teacher, graduate of the dance conservatory Duncan Centre in Prague, she completed a scholarship at the Hunter College and NYU in New York. Co - founder of Ostružina association.
