DISCOVER THE

POWER OF MOVEMENT

MISSION & OBJECTIVES

The festival has a wide range of activities that serve various objectives. One of its main goals is to accelerate the development of dance art on the island by providing support to both established and emerging talents in the field. This support can come in the form of commissioning independent dance productions, offering training and coaching opportunities, fostering international partnerships, providing residency programs, and curating dance-related activities.

By offering these opportunities, the festival aims to stimulate the creation and dissemination of dance within the culture. It focuses on increasing the knowledge and skills of dancers, choreographers, and creators of the performing art form. Workshops are conducted to explore creative interactions between artists and to popularize the performing dance scene in Malta, both locally and internationally.

Moreover, the festival plays a crucial role in enriching the cultural life of local communities, including tourism. It supports the development of international cooperation and promotes the cultural heritage of Malta through dance. By doing so, it contributes to the long-term strategies for the development of dance in the country.

Importantly, the festival recognizes the significance of the audience and strives to create a sense of community between the audience and the artists. This is achieved through interactive meetings, networking opportunities, and conversations that facilitate engagement and dialogue.

Overall, the festival serves as a platform for fostering artistic growth, cultural exchange, and community-building, while also contributing to the promotion of Maltese dance both locally and abroad.
