Czech-Slovak-German dance retro project about the “good old times”.

The Czech choreographer based in Germany Karel Vaněk will look back at the past with his colleagues from Slovakia, Czechia and Germany. At times, they look at the history through rose-colored glasses and search for things that they cannot find in the present day. However, do we have to escape to the past whenever we want to relieve ourselves of the present, or are the “good old times”, which we will remember nostalgically in ten years, going on right now?
