The second edition of Music and Dance within the framework of the Malta International Arts Festival presents a dance residency by dance artists Gaby Davies and Pamela Kerr leading to three new choreographies set to piano works by Theodore Antoniou, Béla Bartók and Olivier Messiaen. The music will be performed live by Konstantinos Destounis – a young Greek virtuoso who has already been invited to present concerts in prestigious venues around the world including the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, the Llewellyn Hall in Canberra, and the Glocke Saal in Bremen. One of the highlights of the M.A.D. programme is a new choreography by Sara Accettura featuring Moveo Dance Company set to Triple Quartet by Steve Reich.
