Captivating dance performance that delves into the present-day issues of identity and loss of privacy. Accompanied by live music, "Watch Now" follows a couple undergoing a difficult time in their relationship. Their fluid interplay sees mutual motions of pushing and pulling as they manipulate and gently caress each other along with refusing contact and inflicting distress. The man and the woman, dancers Daniel Racek and Barbora Janakova, interpret their shared touches, glances and gestures differently as they move through the sequences. Watch Now (2016) was conceived and produced by Lucia Holinova. Music: Vlado Holina. Vocals: Sandra Tordova. Running time: 50 min.

The 2019 Rehearsal for Truth Theater Festival is organized by the Vaclav Havel Library Foundation (VHLF) and Bohemian Benevolent and Literary Association (BBLA), in partnership with Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Slovak and Romanian performing arts organizations and cultural institutes. The series of events highlight Vaclav Havel’s legacy as a playwright through live performances, panel discussions, exhibitions and a ceremony for the Disturbing the Peace Award to a Courageous Writer at Risk. A key objective is to establish exchanges between U.S. and Central European theater professionals. The program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
