Following its successful reception at Teatru Manoel last month, the ground-breaking ballet PARADE & The Velvet Gentleman will return for one night only on 15 September, as part of the Evenings on Campus festival at the Valletta Campus Theatre.
PARADE & The Velvet Gentleman is part of the Modern Music Days initiative, which is committed to promote the performance and understanding of 20th-century repertoire and contemporary music. The ballet stunned audiences at Teatru Manoel in July, with its outstanding use of new media techniques – such as stop-motion animation and projection dancing – and is now set to deliver an impressive finale during Modern Music Days.
Since its launch in 2015, Modern Music Days has organised a series of innovative concerts under the direction of Ruben Zahra, who often adopts an interdisciplinary approach, blurring the borders between different art-forms.
Besides the Parade ballet, the evening will include a percussion trio extravaganza and a visually-stimulating combination of piano and video-art.
Modern Music Days is organised by Teatru Manoel, the Malta Association for Contemporary Music, and the Valletta 2018 Foundation, in collaboration with Evenings on Campus, as part of the culture programme of Valletta 2018 – European Capital of Culture. Modern Music Days will take place at the Valletta Campus Theatre (formerly MITP) on 15 September at 9pm.
