21 Dances for the 21st Century

“As this multi-layered dance piece unfolds, chapter-by-chapter, it traces the spirit of what it means to live now.” Paolo Mangiola, Choreographer

21 Dances for the 21st Century is ŻfinMalta’s second full-length performance choreographed by Artistic Director, Paolo Mangiola, in collaboration with visual artist Kane Cali.

 

Through the mediums of choreography, video and 3D printing, this visual feast of technology and movement investigates 21 topics, pertinent to our time.

 

Borrowing its structure from the highly acclaimed book 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, by Yuval Noah Harari, 21 Dances for the 21st Century offers reflections, and possible solutions, on pressing issues in our global contemporary culture and the digital age, such as machine learning, AI and the extinction crisis.

 

As this multi-layered dance piece unfolds, chapter by chapter, it traces the spirit of what it means to live now, and the challenges we face.
