ŻfinMalta finally returns to the stage
ŻfinMalta is finally welcoming back audiences into theatres this summer, with the re-staging of a major work called Girls and Boys, by renowned choreographer Roy Assaf!
Following weeks of rehearsals and a long break from performing on stage, the company’s dancers will be reminding audiences what its like to experience dance on stage. Girls and Boys will be premiering as a collaboration with Pjazza Teatru Rjal, Valletta’s open-air theatre, making the transition into shared public cultural venues easier for spectators.
By means of stunning choreography, Assaf highlights some of the attributes that make us human and how they’re imposed upon the gender binary roles of masculine and feminine. The show turns gender roles and dynamics on their head.
“As a repertory company and the National Dance Company, it is critical for ŻfinMalta to expand its repertoire with works by choreographers of Roy Assaf’s ilk, who are either established or fast making a name for themselves on the international dance stage,” said Paolo Mangiola, the artistic director at ŻfinMalta.
“Thus, exposing the company dancers to a range of techniques and influences vital to their own professional development, and bringing world-class dance to Maltese audiences,” he continued.
