Ponec is a stage and facility for contemporary dance, movement theatre and all types of art with which dance communicates. Ponec is an open space for dance, whose mission is to support the independent dance scene and its outreach into other genres. It co-produces 7 – 10 premieres per year and is also the chief producer of selected international projects, boasts a highly professional technical team and advanced light design equipment, and permits creative residencies for artists to complete productions on the stage. About a third of the theatre’s activities are devoted to working with children and adolescents and it is involved in a wide range of international networks and projects, in which it promotes and supports Czech dance – professional seminars, conferences, discussions and workshops are regularly held here.
Ponec is the home venue of the Czech Dance Platform and Tanec Praha festivals, and also provides space to the 4+4 Days in Motion and Small Inventory festivals.
