Maligrad is a performing dance company which begins foremost as a community of artists, underpinned by the coexisting of energies and necessity of each and every person involved. Maligrad stands for a living, breathing entity, one that is influenced by the environment, each other and has an acute sensitivity to the cause and effect potential we have as people, and as artists.

The company creates work stemming from a creative process founded in research, investigation, and inquiry. Maligrad’s unique aesthetic tends toward the highly physical while delicately stringing together a conceptual framework, delivered through a carefully articulated movement vocabulary and an authentic performance state of each and every performer.

Maligrad has company artists in both Croatia and San Francisco. The purpose is to broaden our artistic view on the world and further push the boundaries what community means and how work is made. The company maintains a strong relationship with artistic partners in Europe through frequent EU tours and cross-cultural collaborations.
