EP13: Dancer Tereza Ondrová

Tereza Ondrová

Dancer, choreographer and teacher Tereza Ondrová is a leading figure in Czech contemporary dance. Ondrová is a frequent collaborator with both domestic and international artists, working with such names as director Petra Tejnorová, dancers Peter Šavel (with whom she created the acclaimed duet Boys Who Like To Play With Dolls) and Silvia Gribaudi, and conceptual artist Kateřina Šedá.

In this conversation, the one-time Czech dancer of the year discusses her efforts to dispel the “mystery” surrounding dance for some sections of the public, issues surrounding gender in the Czech environment – and feeling “super powerful” as she approaches her 40th birthday.

Czech Next Wave is produced jointly by the Czech Centres network and Radio Prague International. It introduces listeners around the world to emerging, exciting and highly talented young Czech in various areas of the arts and beyond.
