Following a successful pilot programme in 2019, ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company, is offering 3 residencies (each no longer than a week) to be programmed in the months of April-June 2020.
Located in the Mediterranean, Malta is a bilingual country, speaking both English and Maltese, with year-round sunshine. Within this unique setting, and based at the ŻfinMalta studios on Valletta’s Grand Harbour - one of the most scenic harbours in the world - the National Dance Company offers national and international dance-makers a space for research and dialogue.
The residencies are for local and Europe-based dance practitioners to further develop their choreographic research/practice. Each residency will run no longer than a week. The programme is designed for choreographers, regularly creating work, who need to carry out research which will push the boundaries of their practice. Choreographers from all dance backgrounds are encouraged to apply, whether their research is interdisciplinary, community-based, or dance practice based.
With two studios, ŻfinMalta welcomes selected artists to work in their space between 10 am - 6 pm.
An informal presentation or sharing of work in a format which suits the artist’s practice. The audience will be facilitated by ŻfinMalta and the approach discussed with the artist.
A token of €1000 for each residency. €500 will be offered as a first token, to cover the cost of accommodation and flights for artists based outside Malta, whilst another €500 will be offered for use of travel in Malta and other expenses necessary for the duration of the residency.
