Project summary

Yana Reutova fled from the war with her daughter and students to Prague. There she met other dance students from Lviv and Krivij Rig. Thanks to Tanec Praha she started to work with them on the first part of a planned triptych, Together Alone: now they are here, one by one/everyone for themselves and yet together. Together Alone. She intends to continue developing this topic with performers from the Czech Republic (2nd part / Open Air) as Invisible Traces inspired by fingerprints, unique and not repeatable, like the cycle of life. The 3rd part, Crossed Destinies, with African dancer Ladji Kone is again about unexpected encounters. Alone, surrounded, disconnected, to what or rather to whom? So close but so far...

Yana Reutova

Biography: Yana worked as a dancer, choreographer and teacher in the Odesa region. In 2014 she founded Dance Theatre Plastilin in Chornomorsk and created several performances receiving some awards. She organized the “Dance Platform Most” festival and worked a lot with children (Creative Kids project) and her students creating many miniatures for them. After that she started the “Speaking with the Body'' festival, which took place only once.

In March 2022, she took her daughter and several students and fled from the war to Prague, where she now works. She danced in projects by Anna Källblad, Nicole Beutler, POCKETART and herself leads workshops for children and develops her own creative work with various artists.
“Together Alone” is the triptych, which she started with dancers from UA and wants to complete with dancers from the Czech Republic and Burkina Faso during 2023. She made interactive performances “On the way” and “Childhood Time”as part of the project for Ukrainian refugee children.
