DANCE BITES 2017

Common Anomalies is a triple bill of solo dances by young artists, vastly different in style, exploring their cultural identities. Solos interconnect breakdance, contemporary techniques, vogue, modern dance and folklore in dynamic and challenging vignettes. These works are cross-cultural, personal endeavours that capture a unique snapshot of a world of diverse and interconnected people, multiethnic and globalised.

What We Don’t See

Ġbejniet

An ode to a soup recipe by Carl Sciberras’ nan. Like Sciberras, the soup has origins in Italy, Malta and Australia, and will be used as a metaphor to explore mixed race heritage. Sciberras will cook the soup and dance (his)tory in-between.
