Dance of the Magnetic Ballerina

Andrea Miltnerová

Prague/Czech Republic

Andrea Miltnerová has worked for several years in the field of contemporary dance as an independent dancer. She completed her training in London and has danced on international stages as a member of the Prague National Theatre Ballet. At last year’s UNIDRAM, she presented her choreographic piece Fractured.

Taking impossible steps! A strange magnetism prevents the ‘magnetic ballerina’ from lifting up from the few centimetres of floor that she is standing on. Fixed to the spot and restricted in this way, her body deconstructs itself with each movement: sometimes, it is as delicate as a butterfly, sometimes manipulated like a mechanical doll, before becoming rigidly geometric like a figure from Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet. Through movements carried out with the utmost precision, her body strikes continually fleeting poses, striving towards freedom and beauty to become a magical ballerina. .
