Tereza Lenerová

Choreographer, dancer, teacher

Tereza Lenerová (Hradilková) is a Czech dancer and choreographer. She started dancing as a child; in her youth she joined the folk ensemble Valašek, and continued her studies at the Duncan Centre Conservatory in Prague. Lenerová graduated from The Theaterschool Amsterdam and later on visited New York City, where she gained some experience as a dancer. She has collaborated with several choreographers in the Czech Republic and abroad.

Her first dance piece, the duet Variable, created and performed with Einat Ganz, was selected by Aerowaves and presented at the first  Spring Forward festival in 2011.

In order to experiment further, Lenerová co-founded Studio Truhlárna in Prague. There, she created her successful solo piece Swish, which was  recognised as the “Dance Piece of the Year” by the international jury of the Czech Dance Platform 2017 .  After that, she received a number of invitations to present her piece abroad, including Rencontres chorégraphiques internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis, Julidans NEXT 2018, Tanzmesse 2018, Tanzsolofestival in Bonn, TANEC PRAHA festival, 4 + 4 Days in Motion, among others.

Don’t Stop premiered at PONEC theatre in Prague was selected fot the Aerowaves Twenty21 and received a Special mention by the jury of the Czech Dance Platform.   Lenerová has been invited to perform Don’t Stop at festivals and theater venues such as Les Plateaux 2019, SummerReCollection festival, BoraBora Aarhus, NORMA festival Ostrava and TANEC PRAHA.

Lenerová often collaborates with artists from other art backgrounds. In both of her solo pieces, she worked intensively with musicians, whose work she considers to be as important as the choreography. She also cooperates with visual artists, filmmakers and theatre directors. Together with film director Kari Sulc, she created the dance film Beating, which was awarded 1st prize for ‘Dances with Camera’ at the Short Waves festival in Poznaň (Poland).
