ŻfinMalta showcases seven emerging choreographers in six solos at Spazju Kreattiv.

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

ŻfinMalta’s Artist in Residence programme is bearing fruit, with six of its past and present residents coming together to create ŻfinMade, a new initiative by ŻfinMalta, curated by Artistic Director Paolo Mangiola in a co-production with Spazju Kreattiv, and in collaboration with Valletta Cultural Agency.

ŻfinMade is the culmination of the company’s ongoing commitment to elevate Malta’s contemporary dance scene, and truly support local up and coming artists. ŻfinMalta has provided seven choreographers with the best available resources to create a new, original work, which will be showcased live and online over four days in November.

The works are varied in the themes they explore, from self-representation to the plight of migrants crossing oceans, the impact of data creation and collection on communities, and human vulnerability, ŻfinMade’s six unique choreographies will evoke an emotional response from audiences and invite deeper thought.

For ŻfinMade, each choreographer (one a duo) has created an original, solo work for one of the ŻfinMalta company dancers. It is a unique and rare opportunity for an emerging choreographer to have access to such highly skilled professional dancers within a national dance company.

Spazju Kreattiv will be hosting this unique event, however, audiences are also invited to experience the six solos online, at a different ticket price, in line with Spazju Kreattiv’s strategy for creating a new digital experience for its audiences. This virtual experience will also include exclusive, behind the scenes footage, giving viewers an intimate insight into the process leading to the final performance.

“Our mission is always that of creating a sustainable, thriving, contemporary dance scene in Malta,” commented Paolo Mangiola, ŻfinMalta’s artistic director, “ŻfinMade will showcase the result of our work to uplift artists and give them all our support.”
ŻfinMade is a co-production with Spazju Kreattiv, presented in collaboration with Valletta Cultural Agency.

ŻfinMade performance dates are 26, 27, 28 and 29 November, 20:00, at Spazju Kreattiv, Valletta, or online.
