Biography Jiri Pokorny

Jiri Pokorny was born in Prague, Czech Republic in 1981. He started his dance training at the pre ballet school of the State Opera in Prague when he was eight years old and continued his studies at the Prague National Dance Conservatory.
After his graduation Jiri joined Laterna Magika Praha ( 2000 ), three years later he joined NDT2 in The Hague and continued his career in 2006 with NDT1.
He has worked with many renowned choreographers, like Jiri Kylian, Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leon, Mats Ek, Ohad Naharin, Crystlal Pite and others.
Jiri has also created his own short works at the annual choreography workshop “ Switch-from dancer to choreographer”, collaborated with physical theatre “Spitfire company” in Prague and aside from that he has been teaching for “Move in”, the education department of NDT, Mediterraneo dance festival in Italy and Architanz Japan. His first larger work “Dead Nature” has been created for NDT’s Summer Intensive in 2010. In August 2010 Jiri joined Kidd Pivot Frankfurt, Crystal Pite’s dance company.

Each workshop will consist a warm up based on specific improvisation exercises, starting with simple movement and isolation of a different parts of our body as well as connecting our mind to our physical instruments. In a second half of a class i would like to focus on teaching some dance material (phrases), which has been prepared and worked out on my own. And if we have enough time, i would love to build some new steps with the students together as well. This is just a short explanation what we would do.
