CONTEMPORARY DANCE AT THE MANOEL
Teatru Manoel and the Malta Association for Contemporary Music is presenting a fabulous double bill dance programme titled Chancel / Spirall, featuring the Ballet de l’Opéra-Théâtre de Metz Métropole from France on the 9th January at 8pm at Teatru Manoel as part of the Modern Music Days (MMD).
The music presents two very different facets of 20th century expression. Chancel is inspired by the music of German-born British composer Max Ritcher, with post-minimalist melodic contours that evoke film music. The music for Spirall, composed by Maltese composer Ruben Zahra, portrays primordial rhythms combining primitive pulse with complex contemporary textures.
Spirall is a co-production between Teatru Manoel and l’Opéra-Théâtre de Metz Métropole which premiered at the Musée de la Cour d’Or on the 4th of December 2015. MMD is organised by Teatru Manoel and the Malta Association for Contemporary Music as part of the Valletta 2018 Cultural Programme in the run up to the European Capital of Culture year.
Tickets are €12 with €10 discounted tickets for students and senior citizens. These may also be purchased by calling 2124 6389 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
