Modul-dance presence at Malta Festival in Poznań

For more than 20 years, the International Theatre Festival Malta has been a melting pot of traditions, themes and forms. The distinctive feature of the festival is the fusion of concerts of international stars, experimental shows, small projects in the city space and discussions with scholars.

Poznań will host from the 24th of June to the 20th of July a new edition of the Malta Festival, where contemporary dance is always present. A representation of the modul-dance project will be concentrated in a few days of the most innovative choreography. Anne Juren will present Tableaux Vivants (25 June) and Magali Milian and Romuald Luydlin, members of La Zampa their Spekies (27 June). Polish audience will have the chance to discover one of the artists selected in 2012, An Kaler who will perform On Orientations/Untimely Encounters twice in the same day (26 June).

Marie-Caroline Hominal and Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz, modul-dance selected artists, are too part of the programme with other titles, Bat (26 June) and A gesture that is nothing but a threat (28 June), respectively.

All the shows will take place at Stary Browar, home of the Art Stations Foundation Poznań, one of the modul-dance partners.

Interview with La Zampa

Romuald Luydlin talks about Spekies and the artistic collaboration with Magali Milian, both members of the company La Zampa.

Interview done during the residency done at Graner (Mercat de les Flors) in Barcelona in November 2013.

La Zampa is one of the modul-dance artists. Proposed for the project by CDC Toulouse, the company was selected in 2011 to develop a project named “Spekies”. The piece was premiered a few days ago at CDC Toulouse.

5 modul-dance artists performing in Toulouse

A new edition of the Festival International CDC-Des Migrations will take place in Toulouse very soon. From the 2nd to the 19th April, 17 artists will present their works at one of the 8 venues participating. Its interesting artistic program includes four shows developed under the umbrella of the modul-dance project.

Hooman Sharifi will present Then love was found and set the World on fire. The piece derives its visual expression from the videos posted on the Internet which documented the popular revolts ocurred in Iran in 2009. Magali Milian and Romuald Luydlin will premiere Spekies, an approach to shape and premonition that they lead in the company of a guitar-player and the author of modern detective stories, Caryl Férey. Pausing is the title of the project developed by Ioannis Mandafounis and May Zarhy. It moves between dance and physical movement, imaginary scenarios and slices of reality creating an intimate spectacle. Eugénie Rebetez and her one-woman show entitled Encore blend song, dance and humour to create a unique language. Rebetez goes against trends and performs in a light-veined and cheeky register.

Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz, 2012 modul-dance selected artists, will perform a previous work, Fora de qualquer presente, a disturbing blend of precise writing and choreography which builds progressively using onomatopoeic gestures. In their universe, time goes backwards and the body follows this fleeing motion.
