A special presentation celebrating the marriage of contemporary and traditional dance.

Introduced by Sian Tomos, Arts Council of Wales

Migrations presents the Wales Premiere of Jinx 103 by Compagnie József Trefeli (Switzerland/ Hungary) together with a celebration of The Journey our project with Fillipa Francisco (Portugal) and three local folk dance groups presented as part of the Cultural Olympiad.

Jinx 103

Hungarian's József Trefeli and Gábor Varga grew up separately in the USSR and Australia, both training in contemporary dance and traditional Hungarian folk dance. They come together in Jinx 103, sharing a common dance heritage learnt on opposite sides of the globe.

Jinx 103 is a breathtakingly energetic dance of lightning fast footwork, leg twisting and weaving, high kicks and turning jumps, it is also a vibrant body percussion piece with complex sound patterns of clapping and slapping, clicking and stamping.

"an astonishing performance... entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time."

Geneviève Charras, La Fleur du Dimanche wrote:
"Breathtaking. A humorous and superb duet… revisiting the rules of folk dances and rejuvenating them with an explosive manner."

The Journey

In July 2012, Portuguese choreographer Filipa Francisco and composer Antonio Pedro collaborated with local traditional folk dance groups, cloggers and musicians to create a unique performance where contemporary and traditional dance meet. The travelling performance was presented as part of Adain Avion's contribution to the Cultural Olympiad.

In celebration of this wonderfully successful event, Migrations presents an exhibition of photographs and film made of The Journey by Welsh artists Dewi Glyn Jones, Warren Orchard, Tom Simone, plus live performances by Dawnswyr Bro Cefni, Grwp Dawnsio Ysgol Bro Gwydir and National Eisteddfod 2013 winners Dawnswyr Delyn.
