“The dance and movement are bursting with joy. […] The uniqueness of ‘Alanda’ is the movement language. […] A dance that stores power and velocity.” – Haaretz, Israel 2016

Alanda is a 45-minute dance piece inspired by the ancient rituals and breathtaking landscape of old Andalusia (Al-Andalus) – a gateway between Europe and Africa and a place where different traditions and cultures coexist. Alanda is a place where tribes gather, lovers dance, battles abrupt, and desert winds echo its remembrance. The dance is set to a powerful cinematic music score featuring ethnic composers Armand Amar, La Roza Enflores, and Les Tambours du Bronx.
