21st Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival - Switzerland

Cyprus : 21st Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival - Switzerland

Creatures with extremely diverse qualities meet in this dance piece. Through their joint experiences they slowly begin to realise that there is opportunity in diversity, if they join forces and complement each other. Together they succeed in overcoming obstacles and discover new perspectives on even the trickiest of situations. The three company members tumble their way through a colourful range of concise episodes and images that draw their character from the imaginative and varied stage design, the props and, in particular, the costumes. It only requires balloons, tights and – above all – heaps of paper to realise it. It is just unbelievable how much you can do with it! No doubt – after this performance the children who have watched the piece will leave the theatre with tons ideas to develop and incorporate into their own play.

Company MAFALDA

The multi-layered worlds with which the Zurich based Company MAFALDA, directed by the choreographer Teresa Rotemberg, fascinates its audience, is of a very particular character. At times narrative, at times abstract, the company combines sophisticated, often highly virtuous dance elements with all kinds of theatrical devices. MAFALDA's cosmos is full of funny, whimsical, thoughtful and poetic images and scenes; comedy and tragedy are often close to one another. Over and over again the company strives to question realities; the continuing theme is the acceptance of deficits, diversity and change. MAFALDA's creations are designed to appear lightweight and ironic, but repeatedly deal with the big questions of our life and coexistence.
