On Reefs and Eroded Lands We Danced

ŻfinMalta’s Artistic Director, Paolo Mangiola, opens the 2022/23 season with a new full-length work for the company. Taking inspiration from the Svalbard seed bank – a vault built to contain the world’s most prized crops in case of an apocalyptic event – this work explores the possibilities of what we as humans select and conserve as essential elements to protect and preserve life on earth.


Collaborators include the Indian composer Goya, Maltese visual artist Matthew Attard, and dramaturg Victor Jacono.
