Andrea Miltner (UK)

andrea

Andrea first stepped on to stage delicately - 'sur pointe' (Ballet of the National Theatre in Prague), was suspended for a time in musical theatre, before coming down to earth in contemporary dance. Her passion is baroque dance and theatre: she has danced in baroque opera productions at the National Theatre in Prague, the Castle Theatre in Český Krumlov, as part of the Brezice Early Music Festival in Slovenia and the Esterhaza Festival, Hungary. She regularly works with French choreographer Françoise Denieau. She has danced in her creations in Versailles and Prague.
As a choreographer Andrea has collaborated with the early music ensembles Collegium Marianum and Collegium 1704. She recently presented her own creation The Baroque Body Revealed at the Czech Museum of Music and at various venues throughout the Czech Republic.

Her directorial debut was Collegium 1704's production of Gluck's Le Cinesi at the Castle Theatre in Český Krumlov which was very well received. Andrea is also an actress and a proud member of HoME, whose productions always challenge her to the full!

Monika Černošková (CZ)

Monika Černošková

Monika studied acting at DAMU in Prague at the Alternative Theater and Puppetry department, later at KATAP - the Department of Authorial Acting and Pedagogy. She explores the harmonious interplay between body (movement, dance) and voice (sound, speech, singing). She enjoys the moments when the line between the audience and performers are blurred, where there are mutual surprises in audience interaction.

The DoMA performance fulfilled her slight voyeuristic tendencies, bringig inspiration for creation based on the history of the inhabitants of the houses - who got involved in the creation in different ways - and the atmospheres found in the objects and space there. She is fascinated by creating using only what she finds in the place.
