Description

Contemporary with Zoe Camilleri

For the final set of Company Open Classes for the year 2023, Zoe will be leading classes that will build in energy, rhythm and complexity as the week goes along.

 

“We will play with ideas of inertia, suspension and accumulation of speed to help us focus on the qualities needed in the body to hit certain accents while softening in the inbetweens. We will then put these qualities and discoveries in practice through structured phrases and exercise, accompanied by carefully selected, mostly groovy music.”

 

About Zoe Camilleri

 

Maltese- based freelance artist and dancer, Zoe Camilleri, started dancing at the age of 3 with the College of Dance. At the age of 18 she went into full- time training at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in London. After graduating she returned to her home island to join the first ensemble of dancers of ŻfinMalta, first as an apprentice and for the next three years as a full-time dancer. Throughout her career she has performed extensively both locally and internationally, working with choreographers such as Iván Pérez, Athanasia Kanellopoulou, Jose Agudo, Mavin Khoo, Francesca Tranter, Lucia Piquero, Paolo Mangiola amongst others. Her roles further include that of teacher, movement director, choreographer and rehearsal director. Zoe is also a seamstress, owning a sustainable fashion brand called Zowij.Makes, where she handmakes custom made clothing out of vintage and pre-loved fabrics.
