"Elementhis is a multimedial project that explores and utilizes the possibilities of photography, choreography and music composition. Choreography is concerned with three stages of the birth of new elements. In the first part Embryo, operates with extreme positions of the body with the obscurity of his limbs and bodystructure. The second part Paradox Pel gives an image of moving by air in the space with the body covered by the butterfly pel who determines death in touch. The last part is inspired by Medusa's body ​coincides with the space. The choreography material makes the illusion of the movement in water, soft flooring and pulsating life.

​Element (from latin Elements, element, the letter) is something simple, primary, what is more complicated things consist from or what they are based on.​"

"At the beginning,

at the very beginning... there was nothing. Nothing in particular, just something formless, which was only becoming a real conture.

Nothing more than mass of thoughts and  phantasies. This conture was becoming real, could be drawn, assembled and hold together thanks to natural materials. However, how a coat could be born with such spiritual power?

A coat, which is consequently breathing as a man! Yet it could be born.... as the content was given. As this is a sacred place, a place where all beings are equal. Where God is omnipresent, where you can clearly feel that spiritual a material matters are united. A place where people reach to in hope for absolution, help and handshake. A place which accommodates everything, as well as lifestories, greatness, smallness and rythmisation. A space which is a box of untangible belief, a body which is a box of immaterial soul. Everything needs a scaffolding, frame which holds us together. And this is a coat we can touch. "

"Original adaptation of the theme Girls war, inspired by the leitmotiv of Czech rumors by author Alois Jirasek. The moving rendition of the story is malignancy manipulation and betrayal thrown into the limited space of wrestling ring. The choreography points out the absurdity of ancient disharmony between man and woman, works with false nationalities, obedience to the community and also immoral and unethical practices weakness and willingness of an individual to become a tool of evil intent."

"Vector as a physical quantity. Specifies the orientation of the curve or surface. Defines the direction of movement, his reflection, shape and slope. Tetrahedron is the smallest indivisible and perfectly symmetrical object, consisting of a regular equilateral triangles and still has four walls. Individual elements are expressed in relation to each other goldensection, is an ideal balance.Tetrahedron shape is also used as a symbol in a 3D direction vector." DP

Vector 4 is a metaphor for the other (fourth) dimension, whether we perceive it as a mirror of the world or the world in which we see us.  It is also a world of twisted reflection and inversions processes. The author plays with the possibilities, of what would happen if some of the distortions have transferred into a real space.
Intensive daily inspiration is movement and life of a woman, who is constantly confronted and evaluated of the shadows and reflections of herself. Vector 4 tetrahedron extends previous Trinitas project, which also talkes about the aspects of female life in parallel situations.
