Threaded Fine

This durational performance gathers a cross-generational cast of 24 professional and non-professional dancers, aged 8 to 70+ years, from across the Maltese islands, including the ŻfinMalta company dancers.

Threaded Fine is a new dance work by the renowned British choreographer, Rosemary Lee, commissioned and presented by ŻfinMalta, under the artistic direction of Paolo Mangiola, in collaboration with Valletta Cultural Agency.

This durational performance gathers a cross-generational cast of 24 professional and non-professional dancers, aged 8 to 70+ years, from across the Maltese islands, including the ŻfinMalta company dancers.

Over a period of approximately 5 hours, 24 solos are performed like a relay, one after the other, starting with the youngest dancer and ending with the oldest, all accompanied by a specially-commissioned sound score, performed live by young composer and singer Isaac Lee-Kronick.

As each dancer 'hands the baton' on to the next, the audience is free to come and go, or stay for the duration.

This is also a rare opportunity to see the choreographer Rosemary Lee perform as one of the soloists.

Continuing her passion for making large-scale, intergenerational performances and films, Rosemary Lee has drawn inspiration for this new work from the cyclical rhythms of life that shape us, while also highlighting the singular individuality of each performer.

Threaded fine is a performance that is both intimate and expansive, offering the audience the opportunity to be in closer proximity to the dancer.

Duration: approx 5 hours, during which time the audience can come and go freely
