Description

21 Dances for the 21st Century is the second full-length performance choreographed by ┼╗finMalta’s Artistic Director, Paolo Mangiola, in a collaboration with visual artist Kane Cali.

Borrowing its structure from the highly acclaimed book 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, by Yuval Noah Harari, ’21 Dances for the 21st Century’ offers reflections, and possible solutions, on pressing issues in our global contemporary culture and the digital age, such as machine learning, AI, and the extinction crisis. As this multi-layered dance piece unfolds, chapter by chapter, it traces the spirit of what it means to live now, and the challenges we face.

“After reading 21 Lessons for the 21st Century I was inspired to further interrogate the questions posed by the author, through my own practice as a choreographer. The idea was to create a work which is ‘episodic’, like watching a series, or browsing the internet. I also wanted the pace of the work to reflect the structure and rhythm of the book. I love the way Yuval Noah Harari gets us to think about the big topics – climate change, AI, immigration – and I wanted to challenge myself, the dancers, and our collaborators, to ‘translate‘ these questions into dance, ultimately creating a parallel platform for thinking that the book provides.” Paolo Mangiola
