Swish

Choreography: Tereza Hradilková

Swish proves that rope jumping is more than just a children’s game. It embodies aspiration and self-improvement, ambition and performance: always striving for perfection. Do you jump to overcome your limits and boundaries, or are you trapped in a vicious circle from which there is no escape? How long can this game stay just a game and how long will it take before the game becomes madness? The idea for Tereza Hradilková’s new dance solo was born when she worked on the dance film Beating, which was shot at Prague’s Palaestra boxing club. The dancer and choreographer observed rope jumping boxers. She was fascinated by the buzzing sound of the rope, the lightness and rhythm of the movement – which was a kind of dance on its own.
