Overview


SOVA DANCE

AND PUPPET THEATER

"Dance means something beyond what words can ever say, and the art form can exhibit such layers of emotion."

 

Sova Dance and Puppet Theater celebrates humanity and the environment by engaging audiences through live performance combining the moving body, puppetry, mask, video, dance, and artistic installations. The combined ingredients communicate that which cannot be described in words, and therefore are accessible to communities around the globe.

“Sova” means “owl” in Slovak and also refers to an asteroid belt named by a Czech astronomer.

Workshops

The moving body

Designed to increase flexibility, balance, coordination and stage presence, offering a unique blend of dance techniques, improvisational exercises and movement sequences that prepare the body and mind for performance.

Movement and the mask

Introduces various body work techniques used to approach the creation of a character through the physical presence. Increases individual strength, stamina and stage presence. Spoken words, emotions and body language become more powerful with the consideration of posture, breath and gesture.

Mixed-media performance

Participants reach their fullest potentials in the collaborative, creative process.
