L-AVVIŻI – January 2021

The New Year has rolled in and with it a fresh new start at the drawing board for us at Teatru Malta. First order of business for 2021 was setting up our Associate Artists programme which we launched on New Year’s Day with 6 familiar and established faces working locally and overseas. Simone Spiteri, Paul Portelli, Lee-N Abela, Marta Vella, Jimmy Grima, and Simon Bartolo will be working closely with us on a number of different projects, exploring different possibilities and creating new collaborations as our programme of events for 2021 continues to unfold. WATCH as they wished all of us a happy new year and described their thoughts on becoming associate artists by clicking here…

Our call for applications for our 4th edition of Trikki Trakki Youth Theatre Festival has been extended by a week and will now be closing today at noon! Due to the outpour of interest and considering the precarious circumstances that our educators, parents and students have found themselves in over the past few days we thought it best to give some more time for children to settle in after the Christmas period and apply. If you’re reading this and know of any children that would be the perfect fit for our festival then make sure they apply, they only have a few hours left! The process is simple and extremely straight forward, just follow this link and follow the instructions. This year’s festival, lead by Festival Director Antonella Axisa will be taking place online to ensure everyone’s safety, with all our usual curated theatre making workshops for kids to happen online instead of in person.

Something else that we’ve also been working on is our Atelier Francis Ebejer, a membership scheme, alongside Teatru Manoel and Spazju Kreattiv. The short introductory session for the Atelier will be taking place over zoom on the 28th of January. Interested in finding out more? Then click here to register your attendance for the session today. 

Before we sign off don’t forget that Ġulbiena: a Panto in the Dark is currently available on SoundCloud until the end of the month! Make sure to tune in before your time runs out. 

See you soon!
