Over the ten years of its existence, Rootlessroot has established itself on the world stage with its hauntingly experimental, radically physical and emotionally urgent work, characterized by messy, raw movement and heroic themes. The authors often reflect on current socio-political events. The core of the group consists of Slovak Jozef Fruček and Greek dancer and choreographer Linda Kapetanea, who also collaborate with artists from around the world, including the Czech Republic and Slovakia. An important part of their work is research and teaching activities. In addition to numerous awards, last year Fruček's choreography Collective Loss of Memory won the main prize at the CZECH DANCE PLATFORM.
