13th European Dance Festival (Nicosia)

Cyprus : 13th European Dance Festival (Nicosia)

A very important international dance meeting with the participation of many European countries. A feast of contemporary dance meets all the trends, the dynamics and the new forms of the international contemporary scene through the works of representative groups of each country.

The increased level of participation by EU member states with performances and workshops is a clear indication that the Dance Festival is becoming an annual highlight of the European arts and culture scene.

The European Dance Festival will be celebrated for the 13th consecutive year in 2010 in Cyprus. It is a co-organization between the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture and the RIALTO Theatre in Limassol with the collaboration of the Embassies of the member-states of the European Union in Cyprus.

The 2010 European Dance Festival will be dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Republic of Cyprus. The participation of each country in the Festival will be considered as part of the official contribution of each member state in the celebrations for the anniversary.

The Festival will take place in RIALTO Theatre in Limassol and in PALLAS Theatre in Nicosia


Tort / The Chaos Quartet - Spain
17 June, 20:30
Duration: 60 min.

Spain presents Thomas Noone Dance Company in the works Tort and Chaos Quartet choreographed by Thomas Noone, Roni Haver, Guy Weizman. An evening formed by two choreographies. A presentation by two choreographers with distinct, contrasted styles, but unified by the dancers and a use of strong, visual, physical dance.


Beginning, progressing, twisting, breaking, failing. Skew. Beginning again.... Tort is pure abstract dance; an investigation of the use of stage space and the time line and the organization of both the group and the individual within them. Tort is a search for the symbolism and power of suggestion of the body formed and deformed before the spectator.

Dancers: Alba Barral, Jvier G Arozena, Horne Horneman and Paloma Muñoz
Choreography: Thomas Noone
Music: Diego Dall'Osto
