ŻfinMade is a new initiative of ŻfinMalta, which invites six Maltese, emerging choreographers to each create a new solo work with one of the company dancers. The project is an extension of ŻfinMalta’s Artist in Residence programme, engaging past and present residents, and is one of the company’s annual signature programmes, presented in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv and Valletta Cultural Agency.


ŻfinMade exemplifies ŻfinMalta’s ongoing commitment to cultivating contemporary dance practice in Malta. The project highlights a commitment to fostering and nurturing local artists, and bringing them into contact with the country’s leading institutions.


ŻfinMalta provides each of the six choreographers with the resources to develop and create a new work, including mentorship by the company’s artistic director and staff, and two high-profile international dance dramaturgs, Rodia Vomvolou and Thomas Schaupp. ŻfinMade culminates in four evenings of dance performances showcasing the work and introducing the choreographers and dancers to new audiences.

ŻfinMade is a co-production with Spazju Kreattiv, presented in collaboration with Valletta Cultural Agency.
