Experience a piece of unspoiled nature for yourself, experience the last 4% of wild emptiness! Scenic multimedia modulation of the habitat of a nameless island on the Jakubský Pond in the village of Poušť, Nymburk district. Dance of death. Dog and live heron. Terribly live performance.

“If we were to search for the event of the season, then this would be one. Wonderful dancers, great choreography, strong concept. Sometimes I feel like Czech dance is somewhat stuck, but this is truly a step forward. Hallelujah!”
Jana Návratová (IDU)
“Jana Burkiewiczová’s choreography reminds of a tornado. It is extravagant in its wild energy and the richness of images built on various situations and movement principles…”
Lucie Kocourková (Opera+)
“Beautiful, the best, wonderful! Make sure you don’t miss the Island!”
