Lhotáková Soukup Dancecompany

Lhotáková Soukup Dancecompany is a Czech dance/theatre company consisting of choreographer and dancer Kristýna Lhotáková and director/sound designer Ladislav Soukup. The past few years Lhotáková Soukup Dancecompany has worked with documentary theatre. They often find inspiration in "real people", who more often than not also appear onstage during the productions.

Kristýna Lhotáková and Ladislav Soukup have worked together for more than 15 years, of which the latter ten have been within the constellation of Lhotáková Soukup Dancecompany. Through the company they have developed their own distinct dance/theatre aesthetic striving to capture an essence of what it means to be Czech... while staying authentic and different.
