Viktor Černický creates works which spans the fine line between dance, performance, circus, and physical theatre. He leads the long-term research project The Body as Object / The Object as Body, which explores the dynamics of relationships between objects and the individuality of the performer.
His first solo performance PAROLAPOLEA earned nominations in the categories of Dancer of the Year and Dance Performance of the Year at the 2017 Czech Dance Platform, where he won the chance to participate in the Choreographic Research Week during the B-Motion Festival in Bassano del Grappa. His latest solo piece PLI, presented in November 2018 after two years of work, received the Audience Award and Total Award at the Czech Dance Platform 2019.
Alongside his own work, he has also collaborated and performed with Jaro Viňarský, Dominique Boivin, Daniel Gulko and Compagnie Mossoux-Bonté, among others. He is currently working on a new piece Prima: A collective autoportrait (working title) in which the public will be engaged instead of professional performers. The piece, which will premiere in 2021, is now looking for potential partners for residencies, public meetings, workshops and presentations.
