PUZZLE WORK with Anton Lachky – a virtuosic and sophisticated dance workshop, including a technique class beforehand.
Where: Henny Jurriens Studio, Amsterdam The Netherlands
When: 13-17 July: class 9:30 -11:00, workshop 11:30 – 14:00
PUZZLE WORK opens the door to an endless variety of different combinations inside your movement possibilities. And so by playing, organizing, and reorganizing your body in simple/ complex and many different ways, it allows you to keep playful all the time while dancing.
(How colourful can your dancing be?)
Body functions the way we wish or rather allow it to function. This game of Puzzle Work is a never-ending process, a never-ending game if we wish or allow it to be. Each body has its balance, logic, and its limitations.
“I feel lucky today to be discovering where my balance is and where my limitations are and how I can transform that and integrate that in my dancing.”
Born in 1982 in Slovakia, Anton started to dance at the age of 5, in the folk dance company Maly Vtácnik. He continued his dance education at the J.L.Bellu Conservatory in Banská Bystrica, where he collaborated with friends and also participated in M.A.P.A. (Moving Academy for Performing Arts). From there he went on to train at the University of Bratislava in 2001, followed by further training at P.A.R.T.S., headed by A.Teresa de Keersmeaker (Belgium).
Anton became member of Akram Khan Company in March 2004 and toured “MA” for two years. (48 countries all over the world). Anton Lachky is co-founder of Les SlovaKs Dance Collective. They created their first piece “Opening Night” in 2006 and premiered it in October 2007, then Journey Home (2009) , Fragments (2011). In three creations, the collective acquires a planetary fame.
Anton founded his own company Anton Lachky Company in 2012. His work brings together western-educated dance, and shreds of eastern folk and pop culture. Thanks to the “Puzzle work”, a technic of composition he created, Anton’s shows demonstrate an extremely virtuosic and sophisticated dance language.
