ŻFINMALTA PRESENTS EXCERPTS FROM TNEJN(2): A DOUBLE BILL FRAMED BY A STRONG MEDITERRANEAN SENSIBILITY BY TWO SPANISH CHOREOGRAPHERS WORKING IN THE DIASPORA WHO BOTH RE-STAGED WORKS ON ŻFINMALTA.
Spanish - Dutch choreographer Iván Pérez Avilés is one of the most exciting emerging international dance makers today. The company is proud that he re-staged his highly acclaimed work 'Exhausting Space' as part of Tnejn(2), which we will now be seeing excerpts from. 'Exhausting Space' was originally commissioned by and premiered at the Korzo Theater in The Hague, 2015. Presented as an adaptation of his previous work 'Attention, the doors are closing!' created in Moscow, three dancers tenderly discover new possibilities for human connectedness.
The programme includes excerpts from a short work by Spanish - Malta based choreographer Lucía Piquero. 'Petrichor' was originally created on the 2015 - 2016 group of ŻfinMalta apprentice dancers. The work was received with enthusiasm and was then re-staged for the main company dancers of ŻfinMalta.
Tnejn(2) premiered in Malta at Teatru Excelsior, Għargħur, on the 12th of May 2017.
