Carmen & Paquita @ Istana Budaya, Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpurd_luaz
Danceworks Production was initiated by a group of dance enthusiasts with an aim to promote dance culture and raise funds for charity through dance performance in Malaysia. Since 1998, Danceworks Production has staged 3 performances and raised funds for various foundations and needy groups including Cancerlink Foundation, Fatima Kindergarten, Yayasan Sin Chew, Kiwanis Down Syndrome and Lions Lyfe-Line Leukaemia Fund. Danceworks also supported workshops and competitions organized by The Dance Society of Malaysia and sponsored local dancers to participate in events abroad.
‘Danceworks 2010’ aims for a bigger success in presenting a full length work ‘Carmen’ and a well known classical ballet repertoire ‘Paquita Grand pas classic’. ‘Paquita Grand pas classic’ will be led by Lei Zhao, First Soloist of the prestigious Birmingham Royal Ballet (UK) and Connor Walsh, Principal Dancer of America’s 4th largest company, Houston Ballet.
‘Carmen’, an original choreography by Choong Wan Chin (Artistic Director of Danceworks Production) premiered in Japan in July 2008 and was well received by the Japanese audience. Ena Hirose, Co-artistic Director of Ena Ballet Studio Company whom the original role of Carmen was created for will resume the same role in this production. Connor Walsh who has partnered Ena Hirose in 2 other ballets in 2008 and 2009 will partner her again as Don Jose.
Danceworks Production involves not only foreign artists but also many Malaysian artists including those who are working overseas. We envisage such cultural exchange will benefit our local dancers as well as our people culturally and socially.
