ŻfinMalta & Heritage Malta invite you to explore
It is said that dance is the language of the heart and of the soul. People dance for several reasons – to entertain, to celebrate, to provoke, to heal, to demonstrate skill ..... But how does movement take shape?
We welcome you to attend a series of appointments - Movimento - in which ŻfinMalta & Heritage Malta are joining forces to cultivate dance as part of our heritage. The sessions will consist of informal discussions on contemporary dance-making, in which all those who attend will be invited to pose any questions that may come to mind when discussing the position on contemporary art in today's world. Movimento uncovers the connections between dance, choreography and lays bare movement in every form of contemporary art, being it theatre, visual art, design, media, photography or art criticism. You are encouraged to attend with friends & colleagues who share the need of a stimulating discussion on the relevance & function of contemporary art.
Anyone (recommended age 12+) who is curious about dance and how movement is given life is invited to attend.
Such sessions may be interesting for parents who would like to know more about the world their children are entering if they follow any form of performing art. The sessions are recommended for age 12+ however we do encourage family members and guardians to attend with anyone between 13 & 17.
Students & teachers who are studying any form of contemporary art are also welcome to attend such sessions as movement can be read across disciplines ... Movimento could open up new perspectives. Otherwise, these sessions are targeting any individuals who have shown interest or an openness in keeping movement, and critical thinking alive in their lives.
Heritage Malta is collaborating with ŻfinMalta in the second season of Movimento to bring aspects of contemporary dance to a wider audience. Through a series of sessions, participants will gain particular skills and become active spectators.
The five sessions of Movimento will be led by five different artists who will allow participants to recognise tools of choreography, both in dance and in life. Each expert will be assisted by the national company dancers, and will explore notions around the works that are currently being programmed by ŻfinMalta.
Sessions are casual, informal, informative, immersive, interactive, and most importantly, engaging.
Appointment 1 - Dr Victor Jacono discussing 'The Art of Unison'
Dr Victor Jacono teaches acting and performance production at the MCAST Institute for the Creative Arts, where he continues to build upon his international experience as a theatre artist, researcher, and educator. In line with his doctoral studies at Roma "La Sapienza", Dr. Jacono combines his work in culture and the arts with an interest in the workings of complex systems, especially the brain, to develop creative instruments that can be adopted by artists and non-artists alike.
The first Movimento sessions will be held on Thursday 17th October at 6.30pm at the national-community art museum MUŻA in Merchants Street, Valletta.
Further sessions will take place in January, February, April and June 2020.
Participants may also avail themselves of a 15% discount when dining at MUŻA Restaurant after the session.
