WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Czech co-founders of the LaS Company, choreographer Kristýna Lhotáková and director/sound designer Ladislav Soukup, create a unique documentary dance-theatre working with non-dancers, "real people," as inspiration. For the New York segment of The Name of the Game, a piece that explores the irrevocability of nature, they have assembled a corps of ten young people, aged fifteen to twenty-five, who were cast in NYC and who then traveled to Prague to work with the LaS company. The youthful cast, growing up, changing every day, and literally leaping into their lives, embodies the unstoppable forward mechanism of nature, progress, and moments that will never come back. Yet the project seeks to reinvent the "unrepeatable" with aesthetic tools of rhythm, pictures, and movement.
