Pokorný’s performances are characterized by their creativity and virtuoso movement language. But it all begins with his tangible personal experiences, the psychological state of man and structures that form society. It is his way to speak of great ideas and ideals through dance – ideas that only exist when they have significance in someone’s personal life. For Little Great People, he created three duets, inspired by his fascination for the oppositions and contradictions in human nature. Each duet is devoted to a particular area of contradiction. Together they form a multiplicity of contradictions in which the spectator may recognize him or herself and through the stories of others can identify through the body of the dancer.
