ŻfinMalta – National Dance Company, is excited to offer 3 residencies between the months of April & June 2020.
The deadline for application is Saturday 8th February 2020 (00:00)
Candidates should expect a first contact by the 21st February 2020 and ultimately, the chosen applications will be announced by the end of February 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.
ŻfinMalta is looking forward to welcoming both experienced and emerging, Europe-based dance artists currently undertaking choreographic research to develop and explore their work further in a new context, providing the time and space for focus on the creation and development of work.
WHO ARE THE RESIDENCIES FOR?
ZfinMalta, is offering three residencies between April and June 2020 for local and Europe-based dance practitioners to further develop their choreographic research/practice. Each residency will run no longer than a week
These residency programmes are 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.
WHAT WILL BE PROVIDED?
ŻfinMalta will host the selected artists in their studios in the island’s capital, Valletta, which enjoy the inspiring view of the Grand Harbour, defined by a coastline of forts and churches in yellow limestone.
Made up of two studios, ŻfinMalta welcomes selected artists to work in their space between 10 am – 6 pm.
ŻfinMalta studios are equipped with a sound system, air conditioning, storage space, bathrooms, showers and kitchen facilities as well as WiFi access.
We regret that ŻfinMalta’s studio is currently not wheelchair accessible.
WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM RESIDENCY ARTISTS?
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. The company believes that this interaction with an audience is fundamental in the research stages of creating work.
Permission for ŻfinMalta to film agreed parts of the residency
Inclusion of ŻfinMalta logos and/or ŻfinMalta word credit on publicity (print and digital) for any future work which is developed from research undertaken during this residency.
