Sabina Bočková (* 1995)
is a choreographer and dancer based in Prague (Czech Republic). She studied classical and modern dance and after dancing in ballet companies for three years she decided to work as a freelance artist. In 2019, together with Johana Pockova she created a duet The Lion’s Den, which has been nominated at the 26th edition of the Czech Dance Platform and it has been selected in the Aerowaves21. This work was inspired by mass media and political populism. The same year she created another duet in collaboration with Slovak performer Tomas Janypka songlines: expedition 97/18, a piece which delves into the loss of a close one. In 2020 together with Johana Pockova and Inga Zotova-Mikshina she created another full evening piece Treatment of Remembering, which tackles the topic of environmental pollution. Treatment of Remembering won the International Jury Award and the Audience Award at the 27th edition of the Czech Dance Platform and it was selected for the Aerowaves22. Her work has been supported by the Big Pulse Dance Alliance organization and in 2022 with the duet The Lion's Den she will be part of the European project for young audience Shape It!. She is a member of the POCKETART collective with which she produces her own creations. Alongside her own work she has also collaborated for a long time as a performer with the Tantehorse company, the company tYhle led by choreographer Marie Gourdain and most recently with Cirk La Putyka.
Fascinated by simple and obvious body language, she transforms movement through choreographic structures while at the same time addressing topics and themes that echo social and cultural issues.
