Every year the Department of Dance Studies of the School of Performing Arts at the University of Malta organises a programme of choreographies by local and international artists, the Dance Tour. This show serves both as an experience of professional life for our students, and as a showcase of their work throughout their three years at University. For the first time in the history of Dance Tour, this year we also have performers from the Theatre Studies Department collaborating with us.
This year's performances show five choreographies by guest artists Jorge Crecis (Spain), Nawel Skandrani (Tunisia), Lili Keresztesi (Hungary) and Malta-based choreographers and UM Dance Studies Lecturers Sara Accettura (Italy) and Lucía Piquero (Spain). The students work on the preparations of the show for two months and then present it both in Malta and abroad. This year the tour will take them to five different universities in the UK, as well as to different venues in Malta.
