- The REZI.DANCE association is located at POD JAVORY 17 in the village of Komařice where it operates an artist residency for performing arts. It is the first house in the Czech Republic offering residencies exclusively for performing arts. REZI.DANCE functions in between arts and creative industry; it is open to artists, art groups, but also to cultural managers or entire production teams. An emphasis is put on a connection to Komařice where folk traditions are kept alive and a responsible approach to the surroundings nurtured.
- The association is housed at a family farmhouse with a great history; the first mention of the house can be traced back to 1638.
- Each year REZI.DANCE holds an OPEN CALL as part of the A-I-R programme, offering 20 free-of-charge residencies for performing arts. It also hosts performances for local community, and organizes movement and dance workshops for children and adults. REZI-DANCE regularly collaborates for instance with Jaro Viňarský, Tereza Ondrová, the companies Ufftenživot, Cirk LaPutyka, Tanec Praha, and Nová síť. It is a member of the Czech Cultural Network Nová síť.
