CARMEN – Flamenco meets Contemporary

CARMEN – Flamenco meets Contemporary

For the first time, Moveo and Alegria Dance Company, in collaboration with Teatru Manoel, joined 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?

Carmen was performed on the 3-4-5 February 2017 at Teatru Manoel at 8pm, all to live music and enjoyed 3 full houses.

The company was invited to participate in an Arts and Cultural Festival called ‘Alcheringa ’15 – Magnum Opus’.

The Festival, organized entirely by the students of IIT (India Institute of Technology), was held between January 29th and February 1st and included a variety of artists, both local and international.

Alegria Dance Company presented ‘El Camino Flamenco’ showcasing a journey from India to Spain and how Flamenco is evolving in today’s world, fusing it with Maltese Folk Music.

The performance, held in the IIT Campus Theatre, was very well attended and appreciated by the enthusiastic audience, particularly when the Maltese dancers, to the surprise of those present, ended their number with a flamenco choreography to a popular Bollywood song, bringing the whole theatre to its feet in a spectacular jumping ovation.
