Martina Georgina

Martina Georgina (MG, 1989) is a Maltese artist currently based in Tallinn, where she is about to complete an MA in Contemporary Physical Performance Making (CPPM). During her studies, she created and performed her first solo performance, “Night_club Narciss_us” (2020), which premiered in Von Krahl Theatre. She also took part in an artist residency with fellow artist Keith Kuuspu at Kanuti Gildi Saal, culminating with the performance ‘YOU YOU’ (2020). Before her studies in Malta, MG initiated the project Teatru Santwarju (2015), of which she is founder, director and performer. With Teatru Santwarju she has collaborated with diverse artists to make intimate works such as ‘Limbus’ (2016), ‘Lib(r)a’ (2017) and short film ‘VANITAS’ (2019), which premiered in Mexico for the FIDanzCA Festival 2019. All works were attempts to explore the complexities of the human condition. MG draws attention to image-making, common obsessive behaviours of self-expression, and reflecting identity discourse in her current practice. Likewise, she continues to work with and challenges her female voice and perception by interweaving self-hood with the fictional.
