The National dance company, ŻfinMalta was on an international tour this weekend, between 7 July to 9 July. The ŻfinMalta dancers will be opening the Civitanova Danza Festival in Marche, Italy this Saturday 8 July at Teatro Annibal Caro.
This year the Civitanova danza festival is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary. This dance festival presents 11 events with leading Italian and international artists, including world premieres, with the aim of bringing together representatives of the world of dance and different cultures, exploring various choreographic styles and languages. This is a great opportunity for the Maltese National dance company to be in the limelight of such an event. Through this world-known festival, ŻfinMalta continues to attract the recognition it deserves.
Eight ŻfinMalta dancers, under the artistic direction of Paolo Mangiola, will be performing Utopia, a unique contemporary piece choreographed by Emanuel Gat, which premiered in Malta at the Manoel theatre last May.
ŻfinMalta wraps up its 2022/23 Season with this performance at one of Europe’s most important festivals. It also marks a much-awaited comeback after two challenging years for touring companies.
“It's an honor to be invited once again to the prestigious Civitanova Danza Festival, and even more so to open the event in its celebration of 30 years. Being part of an incredible line-up of international artists and companies fills us with pride and makes us truly grateful to represent Malta's talent on a global stage.” said Paolo Mangiola.
Mangiola emphasises that “ŻfinMalta is truly an ambassador, dedicated and committed to sharing the captivating beauty of our island through dance, and we couldn't be more excited about showcasing the best of what Malta has to offer.”
Stay tuned for the launch of ZfinMalta’s new season in September, packed with world class productions and activities, leading into our 10 year anniversary.
