Working with the Portuguese choreographer Tânia Carvalho, one of Europe’s most important choreographers today, ŻfinMalta’s company dancers perform the highly acclaimed work Weaving Chaos. Homer’s Odyssey is the driving force behind this piece, which summons its dancers to interpret the stubbornness, the pain, and the will of the epic hero returning home. Between the show of individuality of a character and their presence or dissolution in a collective, the tireless search for movement remains, and they fall, in order to rise again.
Tânia Carvalho’s career as a choreographer spans over 20 years and includes works for the Lyon Opera Ballet, the Company of Elders in London, the National Ballet of Portugal, the Paulo Ribeiro Company, Dançando com a Diferença, and Ballet National de Marseille, among many others. Her work also encompasses music, drawing and film.
