ŻMDE is the repertory national company of Malta that aims to thrive in the sharing and employment of a wide range of repertoire ranging from new works created in Malta by both local and international choreographers (upcoming and established) as well as the re-staging of renowned works from all over the world, thus creating a company of versatility, whilst maintaining a clear identity with its Euro-Mediterranean roots. Underpinning this vision is the desire to inspire, excite and most importantly, include audiences in the ideas and constant developments evident in the nature of the contemporary arts internationally today.
Emphasis is on cross cultural dialogue and collaboration thus, positioning Malta as a cultural hub of contemporary dance in Europe and the Mediterranean. In doing so, ŻMDE also aims to establish Malta as a major partner in the international arts and creative industries. The company provides full time employment opportunities in dance, in particular to a growing community of young Maltese artists through a professional practice, education and outreach work work and arts related management.
Mavin Khoo will present a new work for ŻfinMalta at the end of April 2016, titled Home.
