Quorum Ballet - "IMPACTO" Limassol 30th June 2009

Posted on July 01, 2009

We had the great pleasure of attending Quorum Ballet performance of "IMPACTO" in Limassol last night at the beautiful Rialto Theater. The text below is taken directly from their web site and we will add pictures and further comments from last night here shortly. An evening and presentation we will never forget. Andrew 

"Quorum Ballet is a contemporary repertoire dance company with a reputation for presenting subtle works and performances of quality.

In a little more than two years, Quorum Ballet - without any state subsidy - has managed to reach their goal of becoming an established company in Portugal.

The company is formed with a permanent technical and administrative team, composers and six dancers, some of which came from the extinct Ballet Gulbenkian, the National Dance Company of Lisbon, the Martha Graham Dance Company, New York, and the Peter Schaufuss Ballet, Denmark.

Quorum Ballet has managed to develop important agreements to obtain support from diverse entities, so as to secure the company's future, insuring the continuity and quality of work and obtaining a physical space for creation, rehearsal and presentation of performances.

"5 Pieces by Daniel Cardoso", "Relations", "A Magical Journey to the Dance World", "Quorum Ballet/Corvos", "Clepsydra", "Desenho ao Invés", "Xirtam", "Fado", "Impact" and "The Other Side" are some of the programmes produced by the company so far. The professionalism of the company and the success of these productions have resulted in several theatres and institutions renewing their invitations. The company has worked with guest choreographers such has Iolanda Rodrigues, Jonathan Hollander, Thaddeus Davis, Rita Galo and Xavier Carmo.

Locally, Quorum Ballet - together with the AQK Quorum Cultural Association and the Amadora Council - opened the Quorum Dance Academy in October 2007 at Recreios da Amadora, Lisbon. This provides open classes for children and adults. Additionally, Quorum Ballet holds workshops for children through protocols agreed with schools and councils across Portugal.

The Quorum Ballet has presented their work in some of the most prestigious theatres in Portugal such has Teatro Camões, CCB, Teatro Municipal de Faro, Casa da Música do Porto, Santa Maria da Feira, among many others.

Internationally, the company performed at the Musikhuset Theater in Aarhus-Denmark after receiving an invitation by the prestigious theatre. In August 2007, the Quorum Ballet undertook their first foray into the U.S.A., giving two performances at the Downtown Festival in Manhattan. In November of the same year, the company travelled again to Denmark with the programme "Relations" where it was considered a six star company by the press. In January 2008, Quorum Ballet was present at the renowned M1 Fringe Festival in Singapore.

"The Other Side" an international project idealized by the artistic director Daniel Cardoso involved two other choreographers; Jonathan Hollander and Thaddeus Davis. The piece was developed in collaboration between the three artists and had its premier both in Lisbon and in New York at the Tribeca Performing Arts Centre in February 2008.

In July of the same year, the company was on a three city tour of Poland having performed in Bytom, Krakow and Lublin.
Currently the Quorum ballet has scheduled a tour to China, Russia and the United States."
