History

Dekkadancers were founded as a project-based dance company in 2009 by Viktor Konvalinka, Tomáš Rychetský (former dancers and choreographers from The Czech National Ballet in Prague), along with photographer Pavel Hejný. The formation of the group was a logical outcome due to the desire to implement one's own projects. 

Since 2015 the company has been increasingly active. The so-called “second generation” of Dekkadancers is directed by Štěpán Pechar, Ondřej Vinklát and Marek Svobodník (also former dancers and choreographers from CNB, Prague) along with Viktor Konvalinka.

The company has always been widely positively received owing to their productions often being infested with humour and imbued with originality, energy and virtuosity which altogether gives the group its signature style. Over a short period of time they established themselves as one of the most exciting dance companies in the Czech Republic. 

Creators from Dekkadancers have been commissioned by leading ensembles within the Czech Republic and abroad namely by the Czech National Ballet, the Bohemia Ballet, Laterna Magika or Prague Chamber Ballet in Prague, DJKT Ballet in Pilsen, JČD Ballet in Budějovice and abroad for the Bayerisches Staatsballett in Munich and for Music Theater Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko in Moscow.

The company soon broadened its work by not focusing solely on theatre-based performances but also working as a production company for various clients amongst which are Renault, Czech pop-rock band Tata/Bojs, Czech Television, Mastercard, Icos, Harper's Bazaar and others.
