Taħt Ħarstek Nistkennu – Bormla presents the audiovisual spectacle of the year!
This year Cospicua is commemorating the 75th anniversary of the national pilgrimage which took place between Birkirkara and Cospicua in 1944.
When the 2nd world war broke out in Malta, for safety reasons the Cospicuans took the titular statue & painting to Birkirkara and they vowed that should no harm befall the church, they would bring the statue of the Immaculate Conception back home in pilgrimage.
The church whitstood the aerial bombings and hence the Cospicuans kept their promise as the statue and the titular painting were brought back home to Cospicua in celebration on the 19th of November 1944.
On the anniversary of this historic event, in the coming weeks, Cospicua will be presenting a grande spectacle in celebration of this monumental event under the title of ‘Taħt Ħarstek Nistkennu’ written by none other than the well-known Maltese favourite Gorg Peresso and directed by Joseph Galea & Charles Scerri.
This spectacle delivers the story of a city – Bormla; its origins, her people and that of the woman who stood by her people and whose name is synonymous with the city of Bormla. She is none other than Mary the Immaculate Conception.
This spectacle is a showcase of diverse forms of art ranging from theatre to dance to original music pieces by the brilliant Mro. Joe Brown, synchronized fireworks and using the latest forms of art technology – 3D projection mapping.
All of this will be amalgamated in one grande spectacle taking place in the very heart of Cospicua at Dock Number 1, along the waterfront of this city, on the 22nd of June at 9:15pm. No entrance fees will be required as this is an open-air show, to be enjoyed by all those who wish to attend.
