The Embassy of Malta in collaboration with Culture Venture presented last Thursday at the Luchana Theatres the programme of original contemporary dance works “Stories in Whispers”. The work arises from the collaboration between the Maltese dancer Florinda Camilleri and the Spanish choreographer Lucía Piquero under the auspices of the newly created Maltese dance platform Other Dance Theatre. The play proposes “an experience of dance and sound, a joint exploration of stories, real or imagined spaces, and possibilities”, said its creators.
In this sense, the ambassador of Malta in Spain, Vanni Xuereb, pointed out that the support of the Embassy of Malta to this type of project is part of “a process of improving our cultural diplomacy and opening opportunities for cooperation between artists“. The ambassador also invited the audience to “transport themselves to the vast expanse of Malta’s Mediterranean landscapes through the work”.
Although the play was presented in a single performance in Madrid, the Other Dance Theatre platform will continue its tour of Spain during February, with Leon and Asturias as its next destinations.
