Carmen - Flamenco and Contemporary Dance

Image
It is my pleasure as Artistic Director of Moveo to officially announce our next production... 

For the first time, Moveo and Alegria Dance Company, in collaboration with Teatru Manoel, join forces to fuse Flamenco and Contemporary Dance to narrate this doomed romance. What better way to portray the distinct characters of the fiery Carmen and the delicate nature of Micaela but through these two contrasting styles of dance?

...The work is a Contemporary and Flamenco Dance adaptation of Bizet's oeuvre CARMEN.




Carmen will be performed on the 3-4-5 February 2017 at Teatru Manoel at 8pm, all to live music. Tickets available from www.booking.teatrumanoel.com.mt Tel:21246389

Spectacular tal-Linja colours our village squares

And that’s a wrap on what was probably Malta’s Largest Touring Theatre Show.  Over 2500 people turned up with an average of 500 people per show.

B’Tal-Linja Jaqbillek Żgur! was a show that toured the five regions of the Maltese Islands becoming the first theatre project to work regionally since the five regions were established. Kalkara, Birkirkara, Mellieħa, Siġġiewi and Żebbuġ Gozo were the lucky squares. This happened with the help of the Valletta 2018 Regional Coordinators.



The audience enthusiastically applauded the stellar cast and lively ensemble as the magical bus entered the square, filling it with smoke and bubbles. The cast, led by veteran singer and actress Mary Rose Mallia, gave a very energetic performance during the 50 minute show. The audience was enthralled …
