The Company

ŻfinMalta National Dance Company is a talented and adaptable dance ensemble, with a diversity of creative voices reflecting the many influences that are part of today’s Malta. Established in 2014, the company has quickly become one of the country’s major arts organisations, at the forefront of a burgeoning contemporary art scene in Malta.

 

For five years, the company has pioneered fresh thinking about contemporary dance in Malta and raised the profile of dance exponentially. We work with the best dancers and choreographers from Malta and around the globe to create productions that are bold and current and of a world-class standard.

 

ŻfinMalta offers a space where artists can take risks, contributing to an open and expansive dance ecology locally and internationally, and providing opportunities for both emerging and established dance professionals to realise their potential. Our work invites audiences to contemplate and question our contemporary world, with the ambition to enrich the lives of all who interact with the company, as both audience and participant.

 

Artistic Director Paolo Mangiola joined the company in its third season, and has been instrumental in establishing its place in the region and further afield in the international dance community. Mangiola’s vision for the company is supported by his own credentials and profile as a choreographer, dance educator and performer.
