Launch of ‘Teatru Malta’ programme

The programme ‘Teatru Malta’ for the first four months of this year has been launched. The programme includes a wide range of productions aimed at all strata of society. The programme was launched at the Spazju Kreattiv which also marked the official opening of the retrospective exhibition XENI, which is a project that visually communicates the last ten years of the scenic history of the Maltese islands. The exhibition is curated by Italian set designer Romualdo Moretti and includes the works of 12  designers and visual artists.

‘Teatru Malta”s artistic director, Sean Buhagiar said that from this year, the national theatre company will be putting together plans for its programme on  a quarterly basis. In this way he said the company can prepare dynamic programmes which appeal to the pulse of its audiences.

The productions for the first quarter of this year include the drama by Alfred Buttigieg, L-Interogazzjoni, which is a crime thriller that leads to a clash between two women who are in a relationship, interpreted by actresses Clare Agius and Angele Galea.

This year will also see the return of the children’s festival Trikki Trakki and the recent production Ħax-Xjuħ which is going to be developed into a club for those over 60 with the aim of encouraging  its members to become active in theatre. In Valletta there are also going to be surprises in the form of a show which has as its theme Xilallu. This street theatre is aimed towards the places where young people gather in Valletta.
