Dance festival to celebrate
the 100th anniversary of independent Czechoslovakia

23 May - 16 June 2018

Brno Exhibition Centre, Pavilion F
Mahen Theatre
Reduta Theatre

A unique European dance event closely linked to the 25-year tradition of the Tanec Brno festival. In 2018, the City of Brno will join in the nationwide celebration of the founding of our state with the RE:PUBLIKA 1918-2018 festival. This grand project will be based on several key events, one of which is the DANCE BRNO 100 festival. The National Theatre Brno has invited dance troupes from the successor states of the Habsburg monarchy. For the first time in history, ensembles from the national theatres of Poland, Slovakia, Serbia, Austria, Slovenia, Ukraine, Croatia, Hungary and the Czech Republic (Czech National Ballet and Ballet of the National Theatre Brno) will perform in a single place. The Ballet of the National Theatre Brno (Ballet NdB) will open the festival with the premiere of its Amadeus MozArt at the Reduta Theatre. Do not miss a dance festival that does not have a similar look in Central Europe. A festival of national ballets from so many countries is a miracle!

OHAD NAHARIN: decadance
Ohad Naharin

Decadance is the work of the legendary Israeli Ohad Naharin, who has belonged to the ‘crème de la crème’ of modern world dance theatre for several decades. Although Decadance is a special combination of parts of entire works created by Ohad Naharin over the past decades, it is also a new form, since these earlier works are set in an original piece within the directorial line and choreographic structure of the entire evening. Ohad's powerful charisma, very specific geographic and cultural background, unique and original poetics of movement and expressive means in general inform a new spectacle especially for viewers, who have a strong, unusual experience at each performance.

Death in Venice
Valentina Turku

The novella Death in Venice is one of Thomas Mann's masterpieces and is also very popular thanks to Visconti's legendary 1971 film. Valentina Turcu’s ballet drama Death in Venice is a reinterpretation of Mann's masterpiece set to Mahler's delicate yet passionate music reflecting the deepest emotions and the most complex states of mind. The creative and choreographic imagination is controlled by the eternal movement of the soul and gently enters the vast universe of emotions pulsating with the nearly imperceptible internal power of Eros.

LOL - Trois Gnossiennes / 5 Tangos / Black Cake
Hans van Manen

Van Manen choreographed Trois Gnossiennes as a sensual duet about resignation, trust and harmony in consonance with Erik Satie's magical and melancholy music. 5 Tangos is built on the music of Astor Piazzolla. Highly popular with audiences, this work is charged with a fiery energy. A tango with something extra. Black Cake originated as a work celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Nederlands Dans Theater and is conceived as a festive parody in five parts based on humour – an irresistibly funny black cake.


The World Premiere of the Ballet Death in Venice today! June 5th in Zagreb!

Fingers crossed for the Ballet of the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb! Today will be the world premiere of Death in Venice by Valentina Turku. Immediately after the premiere Croatia will come to our DANCE BRNO 100 festival! Do not miss the chance to see this new piece first in Europe (after the Croatia)! :)
