Radoslav Piovarči

It was back in 1996 that Mr Radoslav Piovarči (1990, Liptovský Mikuláš) became involved in dance at the children’s folk ensemble Ďumbier. In 2010 he completed his studies at the Ján Levoslav Bella Conservatory in Banská Bystrica. During the five years of studying classical, folk, yet largely modern and contemporary dance l he was led by fine tutors (Tomáš Nepšinský, Daniel Raček, Stanislava Vlčeková, Zuzana Ďuricová Hájková, Martin Urban). He advanced his performing, technical, improvising and creative talents to the degree that he was ready, right after graduation, to use his universal grounding and plunge into professional dance.

Dancer, performer, tutor, choreographer, and stage director, Radoslav Piovarči has been part of professional scene of contemporary dance and physical theatre for nearly a decade. Throughout the time he collaborated with a number of leading names, theatres and ensemble, such as Lenka Vagnerová & Company, Artyci Dance Company, Theatre elledanse, Lucia Holinová, Staatstheatre Kassel, Theatre Dance Studio, Total Brutal Company, VerTeDance, Jana Burkiewicz, Virus Theatre. His hitherto collaborative portfolio includes over thirty different dance projects, films and advertisements.

As choreographer and director he made, since 2010 the productions of  Munnie (Enfin seuls 2010), TAJ DYCH (Theatre elledanse 2012), SET UP (Theatre elledanse 2013), PRA©H (Liptov Dance Theatre 2015), and the modular.dance project MIMO (Culture centre Dunaj 2017). As performing artist he stood out in the award-winning productions by the Czech choreographer Lenka Vagnerová GOSSIP, RIDERS/JEZDCI, MAH HUNT, and participated in the European project MEETING THE ODYSSEY with the production of Memories for Life (directed by Marie Lundström, choreography Lenka Vagnerová). Mr Kozánek made most of his exceptional talent as dancer in male duet focused on the power of physicality PURE (Radoslav Piovarči, Petr Ochvat) analyses the basic movement patterns that the performers subsequently advance and vary all the way to liminal form.

He presents the findings of his research into the current dance principles in learning activities entitled Massive Skills Workshops. He shares and confronts his knowledge at a range of international artistic platforms and dance seminars. In collaboration with authors in different genres of art, he has been actively participating in visual installations and site-specific projects, largely in cooperation with the civic group TRAKT.

In 2016 he was featured at TEDx sharing his experience in culture and contemporary dance. 100 SUOMI FINLAND 2017 is his most recent performance in the series of visual-dance projects that was made to mark the centenary of the declaration of independence of Finland,

Mr Piovarči is author of choreographies for the stage adaptation of the William Shakespeare SONNETS 2016 (2017) and the production of PamiatKAR by Peter Lomnický (2018). His physical-dance solo Dobrý deň pane, pomôžem? (2019) uses dance images about selfless help to address unpopular social themes, resignation, compassion, solidarity and helplessness.
