VerTeDance / Jirí Havelka / Clarinet Factory (Prague)


‘A truly elevating piece of dancetheatre… that might even change the way you see the world’ Exeunt ‘Rich and vivid, full of humour and urban elegance’ Fest Magazine

Imagine a world where you can’t progress despite your best efforts to push forward. Multi-awardwinning Czech company VerTeDance presents a beautifully poignant piece about our lack of freedom and our power to make decisions.

Reflexes, slants and curvatures, pushing off, tipping and falling: every imbalance is corrected and brought back to equilibrium with theatrics and subtle humour. A live soundtrack by Clarinet Factory builds a fluid tension as the dancers weave around their own shadows. 

Correction garnered rave reviews and a clutch of awards in 2015, including a Herald Angel at the Edinburgh Fringe, and both the Audience Award and the MESS Festival Award at Birmingham’s Be Festival. It also won the most prestigious Czech award in the field, Dance Piece of the Year, an accolade that VerTeDance has received three times.
