The world premiere of the play There Might Be Others, directed by a New York choreographer Rebecca Lazier, will open the Old Brewery New Dance program today at 18h00. The 10th edition of this Malta program, which features premieres and the most interesting productions of the Browar dance scene, will last for the first time as long as three weeks and include 20 events.
This year’s program is constructed around the idea of post modern dance, i.e. dance which happens in the space between art and everyday activity. The dance scene of Stary Browar will be graced by renowned artists (Jérôme Bel, Willi Dorner, Frédérick Gies, Isabelle Schad), as well as representatives of the young generation - choreographers from various countries including Poland and Israel.
Can everything be a dance and can everyone be a dancer? Apart from the performances the question of post modern dance will be also explored by the Let’s Dance exhibition. Its curators: Joanna Leśnierowska, Tomasz Plata and Agnieszka Sosnowska describe the works as a conversation about dance as a democratic phenomenon often employing a pop aesthetic, because after all it was pop-culture which made us all believe that we can dance. So, let’s dance!
