For children from 1.5 to 4 years. Cecilia Bengolea and her son would love to share their dance practice. Cumbia, dancehall and reggae will be in our playlists so we can dance and perform for each other.

Together with the lecturer Jana Adamec Tkáčová.

Cecilia Bengolea (1979), works on a range of media including performance, video and sculpture. Using dance as a tool and a medium for radical empathy and emotional exchange. Infused with the symbolic energies found within nature and relationships, her compositions are formed around ideas of the body – both individually and collectively – as a medium. Bengolea develops a broad artistry where she sees movement, dance and performance as animated sculpture. In 2023, she is a guest teacher for the Performance master’s program of the Architecture University of Venice, Italy. She lives and works in Paris and Buenos Aires.

Jana Adamec Tkáčová (1990), scenographer, deals with education of preschool children. She and her husband Jakub create under the Adamec family name. She is interested in self-help groups, association, cooperation, upcycle. She has two children and lives near Ostrava.
