Erbgħa (4) – ŻfinMalta Dance Ensemble
Erbgħa (4), a performance featuring four dances by four choreographers, was premiered in Malta and Gozo in March 2015. The mixed bill presents distinctive works that demonstrate the versatility and diversity of the company within its Euro-Mediterranean context and sensibility.
Commissioned works include: ‘Selah’ by UK based Spanish choreographer José Agudo (new music by Vincenzo Lamagna), ‘Iż-Żmien’ by Maltese choreographer Francesca Tranter (music Walter Micallef) and a company ensemble work by artistic director Mavin Khoo (performed to a Stabat Mater by 18th century Maltese–Italian composer Girolamo Abos). The performance concludes with a piece that is re-staged for the company, a duet, ‘Kick the Bucket’ by the Netherlands-based choreographer Ivan Perez (music by Aaron Martin).
