VESPERS

VESPERS

October 8th and 9th, 20:00 Pjazza Teatru Rjal

Vespers is a double bill of contemporary dance works inspired by plays of Federico García Lorca and organised by Diciembre Dance.
‘Blood Wedding’ is Diciembre Dance Group’s new production based on Federico Garcia Lorca’s renowned work. It is a work fusing contemporary and flamenco dance styles, uniting professional dancers and people from the community, and intertwining Maltese and Spanish cultures. Under the artistic direction of Lucía Piquero, the work counts with the collaboration of Alegría Dance Company and original music by Alberto García.
’88 Lillies And A Dog’ is Cienfuegos Danza’s latest work based on Lorca’s polemic ‘The Public’. Cienfuegos Danza doubles its original cast including Malta-based dancers as a collaborative endeavour for this particular performance. The work is choreographed by Yoshua Cienfuegos and has original music by Jesús Serrano.
