Martina Manalo came to Maelor from Hong Kong to start her residency on the last rainy day of the year. On the first day of the year she spent her time gathering thoughts about the very different world around her by taking photos outside and writing as she went around the little village of Corris. Martina has met some of the lovely residents who told her the histories and stories of the area.
Martina is a classically trained dancer who has moved into contemporary dance. She has been using her time to create a production entwining previous ideas brought from Hong Kong and the thoughts and feeling she has gathered at her time in Corris. Martina has created a small dance performance on Tuesday the 15th of January at Stiwdio Maelor at 6.30pm
