Fairy Tales

Inside the themes of womanhood and the values that femininity brings to our world we are coming back to places of our childhood to reveal the processes of becoming oneself. We are trying on and off different roles, as if it was just another game or another dress. Roles we all know from well known fairy tales or real life figures. We are creating new fantasies for

ourselves, reimagining our identities and the way we see our happy endings.

Fairy Tales is a dance performance with strong visual identity for 8 female dancers and 2 musicians.

„Pocková and Bočková do not present any flattened or banal idea of femininity, but a multi-layered work full of ideas, impressions and feelings that are at the same time so abstract that they open themselves up to the possibility of broad interpretation. Most of all, they show that there is no rigid definition of femininity. And that the search for one's femininity can be playful and fabulous.“ Clara Zanga, Czech Dance News (written from pre-premiere 7.11.2023)
