TLIETA (3) ŻFINMALTA DANCE ENSEMBLE
Tlieta is an evening of three works by female choreographers and composers at the Pjazza Teatru Rjal. The evening is themed with the context of identity, whereby the works collectively engage with notions of reflection, communication, construction, destruction and resistance.
The role of the female choreographer against the tradition of male choreographers in dance is one of particular interest in contemporary discourse. A topic that has in some ways become a matter of urgency within the global dance industry, it highlights the ironically disproportionate visibility of women in dance when it comes to choreography. ŻfinMalta will be presenting the works of emerging choreographer Rachel Calleja, established dance maker Francesca Tranter and internationally acclaimed dance artist Athanasia Kanellopoulou.
This trio of strong female voices will be reflected through their individual questions on identity, space, gender and their inherently Mediterranean sensibilities. The evening will also include sound scores by Jess Rymer, Veronique Vella and composer and sound designer Konstantina Polychronopoulou.
Entrance €15, €20
