Workshop Tereza Dancová
Before Tereza Damcová spreads out the immense horizons of her phantasy, the PAF audience will have an opportunity to attend a workshop under her supervision, which will involve sewing masks. All you need is a needle, some thread and imagination.
With an ease and playfulness typical of her, Tereza Damcová creates an original world full of imaginary landscapes and fairy tale creatures, a world imbued purely with children's phantasies. She uses patchwork, tiny and extensive drawings, performances, body art and, last but not least, animation, through which she allows PAF audiences a look into this phantasy world.
