On Reefs and Eroded Lands We Danced

Artistic Director Paolo Mangiola opens the company's 2022/23 season with a new full-length work. Taking inspiration from the Svalbard Seed Bank – a vault built to contain the world’s most prized crops in case of an apocalyptic event – this work explores the possibilities of what we as humans select and conserve as essential elements to protect and preserve life on earth. Collaborators include the Indian composer Goya, Maltese visual artist Matthew Attard, and dramaturg Victor Jacono.

Paolo Mangiola is a choreographer, dance educator and performer working within ballet and contemporary dance practices. Operating in the interstices between codified dance and ordinary movement, Paolo is interested in exploring this relationship in the context of our interconnected society, drawing inspiration from various artistic sources, the web, and emerging movements. Paolo has created works for the Royal Ballet, Tanztheater Nürnberg, Aterballetto, Szczecin Opera Ballet and Balletto di Roma. He was appointed Artistic Director of ŻfinMalta, Malta’s national dance company in 2017.
