Czech Dance Festival 2021 partners with Springback Academy

Hosted by Tanec Praha, the 2021 edition of the Czech Dance Platform (Prague, 27–30 September) featured 14 different productions, combining this year’s selection with 7 from the 2020 edition (cancelled because of Covid). Alongside its regular extra activities (workshops, pitches, meetings), this year they also ran a review-writing workshop, inviting Springback Academy organiser Oonagh Duckworth and mentor Sanjoy Roy to join Czech critic Nina Vangeli in mentoring emerging local writers.

The short performance reviews we wrote were then published on the Tanec Praha website. Read them here in English and Czech.

Two Springback Magazine writers also attended the platform as journalists: Lena Megyeri (Hungary) and Yasen Vasilev (Bulgaria). You can read Lena’s roundup review in Springback Magazine, and Yasen’s on (both in English).

Thank you to Tanec Praha for the invitation and your hospitality, and to all our workshop participants for your thoughts, words and company!
