First offices in Zejtun for Teatru Malta

The Pandora theatre in Zejtun is to host the first office for Teatru Malta, the recently set up National theatre Company.

Addressing the media, Malta Arts Council Chairman Albert Marshall said space was being borrowed from the community to allow for a project like Teatru Malta to operate from within it. Mr Marshall added that this initiative would lead to investment in the communities both in terms of infrastructure and also in the artistic sector.

The Pandora Theatre in managed by the Zejtun Band Club, and had been built between 1950 and 1955 by Edwin England Sant Fournier. Teatru Malta will also use the teatre space as a testing ground for future projects.

 

Artistic Director Sean Buhagiar said the aim was to have more regional offices. Mr Buhagiar added that different styles and types of theatre will be introduced in these spaces. He explained that one of the projects for community theatres will be ‘Il-Madonna Tieghi Ahjar minn Tieghek’, a composition by Alex Vella Gregory with the libretto by Trevor Zahra.

Culture Minister Owen Bonnici pointed out that these projects will be held under the patronage of his Ministry, as they are part of the Ministry’s policies and cultural strategy.

Teatru Malta will launch its first programme for December 2018.
