Monday, June 11, 2012: Win Free Tickets!
You could win two free tickets to the June 23 performance of Wind-Up by the 420People contemporary dance group.
Just enter your name in the Opus Osm / Wind-Up drawing. That’s all you have to do!
Send us an e-mail before the deadline, and we’ll draw out two names at random. Each will win two tickets to the performance. So four lucky people in all will be able to see Wind-Up for free. (See details below.)
The performance is part of the annual Tanec Praha 2012 dance festival, and is presented June 23 and 24 at 8 pm at the Archa Theatre.
(The June 24 performance is nearly sold out, however.)
Wind-Up is the intriguing, charming dance using wooden industrial pallets as props, scenery, and sometimes even an extra character in the piece. Václav Kuneš created the original choreography to the original score by Amos Ben-Tal. He compares the piece to the spring of a clock: “You wind it up and the tension creates movement. The waves of energy leave traces of something behind. And if you wind something up too tightly, it will either break, or it lets you step in a new direction.”
You can read more about Wind-Up in the Opus Osm article “Wind-Up?” published May 8 (click on the date here). You can also find out more in our article published May 30 (click on the date here) and see a short video excerpt.
1 Send an email with your name and correct email address to: firstname.lastname@example.org
2 Deadline for our receiving your email is 6 pm (Prague time), Thurs, June 14.
3 The two winners will be announced in our regular article published Fri, June 15, on our Home page, www.opusosm.com. Each winner will receive two free tickets.
4 The two winning names will be by random drawing; all decisions are final. Employees and staff of 420People and Opus Osm are not eligible.
5 Email addresses obtained by Opus Osm for this drawing will never be shared, published, or used in any way except to determine and notify the winners.
If you’ve already seen the performance, don’t let that stop you from revisiting it. This time, a new companion piece, Encounters – Piece D’Occasion by Japanese choreographer Saburo Teshigawara will be presented. (It replaces the Duet from 27’52” presented earlier.)
Mr Kuneš and Mr Teshigawara earned the Dancer of the Year 2005 award in Cannes for their first performance together.
For the next performances, Encounters will feature Mr Teshigawara along with Mr Kuneš and guest dancer Rihoko Sato, described as “ a dancer of extreme fragility and technical precision.” — oo
