Germany takes over Rialto’s stage

The Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival is still on and almost every day a new country is invited on stage to showcase their performance and theme. On Sunday it’s Germany’s turn with a performance entitled PARTY.

The public and the performers will dance together in this interactive performance. The public won’t just be the audience in this case but the party itself. Taking place in a special room, with huge spills of colour installed on the floor and the ceiling, with a live DJ and adults dressed with masks and suits, festival goers will be urged to join the party.

The production team commented on this project: “PARTY is our personal invitation to let loose, to be wild and to shake it up. Together we will build a space where we can dance and go crazy. We’ll take everybody to the max, we’ll dance till we drop, and then we will enter a new world together. A world where everyone can dance the way they really want. With PARTY we cross the borders of language and culture, everybody is invited to come and every child is part of the party. By guiding the participants, the performers will encourage every child to take decisions and to express themselves through the unspoken language of dance. PARTY is an unconventional ritual for our contemporary wish for communality.”

PARTY is a dance performance initiated by Alfredo Zinola and Maxwell McCarthy, created in collaboration with Julia B. Laperrière and the DJ Sarah Adorable.
