It is said that dance is the language of the heart and of the soul. People dance for several reasons – to entertain, to celebrate, to provoke, to heal, to demonstrate skill ….. But how does movement take shape?
Heritage Malta is collaborating with ŻfinMalta in the second season of Movimento to introduce contemporary dance to a wider audience. Through a series of sessions, participants will gain particular skills and become active spectators.
The five sessions of Movimento will be led by five different artists who will allow participants to recognise tools of choreography, both in dance and in life. Each expert will be assisted by the national company dancers, and will explore notions around the works that are currently being programmed by ŻfinMalta.
Anyone (recommended age 12 years onwards) who is curious about dance and how movement is given life is invited to attend. Sessions are casual, informal, informative, immersive, interactive, and most importantly, engaging.
The first session will be led by Dr Victor Jacono, who will be discussing ‘The Art of Unison’.
Dr Victor Jacono teaches acting and performance production at the MCAST Institute for the Creative Arts, where he continues to build upon his international experience as a theatre artist, researcher, and educator. In line with his doctoral studies at Roma “La Sapienza”, Dr. Jacono combines his work in culture and the arts with an interest in the workings of complex systems, especially the brain, to develop creative instruments that can be adopted by artists and non-artists alike.
The first Movimento session will be held on Thursday 17th October at 6.30pm at the national-community art museum MUŻA in Merchants Street, Valletta.
Further sessions will take place in January, February, April and June 2020.
Participants may also avail themselves of a 15% discount when dining at MUŻA Restaurant after the session.
Price: €10, €8 for seniors, students and Heritage Malta members.
