ŻMDE, LAUNCHES ITS FIRST SEASON WITH ERBGĦA(4), A PREMIERE FEATURING FOUR DANCES BY FOUR DIFFERENT CHOREOGRAPHERS. AN EVENT SET UP IN COLLABORATION WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF MALTA, SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS. THE MIXED BILL PRESENTS DISTINCTIVE WORKS THAT DEMONSTRATE THE VERSATILITY AND DIVERSITY OF THE COMPANY WITHIN ITS EURO-MEDITERRANEAN CONTEXT AND SENSIBILITY.
Newly commissioned works include: 'Selah' by UK based Spanish choreographer Jose Agudo (new music by Vincenzo Lamagna), 'Iż-Żmien' by Maltese choreographer Francesca Tranter (music by Walter Micallef) and a company ensemble work by artistic director Mavin Khoo (performed to a 'Stabat Mater' by 18th century Maltese–Italian composer Girolamo Abos).
