picture by Team Peter Stigter
Project Sally Maastricht presented a “Folia” dance performance at FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016, a powerful and visually stunning piece performaned by two very talented dancers.

Each year Project Sally Maastricht invites young choreographers during their Choreographic Residencies Program. Especially for the 8th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival they assigned the talented French choreographer, Martin Harriague to create a new work.
For this performance Martin Harriague once again collaborated with with Maastricht based designer Mieke Kockelkorn. Last year they created Tabula Rasa

'Throughout history, cultural heritage has been threatened by the constant evolution of the world’s social and political concerns. Too often, the result of this threat has been the disappearance of some of the world’s greatest cultural achievements.'
Folia is inspired by the traditions and history of the Iberian peninsula where Martin was born, creating a contemporary adaptation of ‘La Folia’ - a quick-paced, tumultuous dance dating back to the late 15th century.

Choreography : Martin Harriague
Costumes: Mieke Kockelkorn
Performed by: Patrizio Bucci, Luis Pedraza Cedrón
Production: Project Sally Maastricht
Folia is supported by Via Zuid
