The national contemporary dance company of Malta – ZfinMalta Dance Ensemble – will launch its first season with Erbgha(4), a premiere featuring four dances by four different choreographers. An event set up in collaboration with the University of Malta, School of Performing Arts.
The performance in Gozo by ZMDE is taking place at the Astra Theatre in Victoria, this coming Saturday, the 21st of March, starting at 8.00pm.
The mixed bill will present distinctive works that demonstrate the versatility and diversity of the company within its Euro-Mediterranean context and sensibility.
Newly commissioned works include; ‘Selah’ by UK based Spanish choreographer Jose Agudo (new music by Vincenzo Lamagna), ‘Iz-Zmien’ by Maltese choreographer Francesca Tranter (music by Walter Micallef) and a company ensemble work by artistic director Mavin Khoo (performed to a ‘Stabat Mater’ by 18th century Maltese-Italian composer Girolamo Abos).
The premiere concludes with a piece that is re-staged for the company, a duet, ‘Kick the Bucket’ by Dutch based international choreographer Iván Pérez Avilés (music by Aaron Martin).
