Everyone Wants a Piece of Malta
January, February 2016
During her residency, Danielle Asciak developed and presented new creative material while also conducting cabaret workshops for emerging performers. Her work led to prospective collaborations with creatives from national and international networks. The residency has helped her to reimagine and expand upon her work in a fresh and meaningful way, which she would not have been able to do outside the confines of her residency. Allowing her to completely dedicate herself to her craft, the residency allowed her to experiment with new ideas that she was nervous to attempt in the past.
