Teatru Malta is Malta’s first National Theatre without walls. No walls you ask? We’ll explain.
No walls means no limitations to create theatre that has its finger on its audience’s pulse. We want to be groundbreaking and relevant. We want to make theatre you remember.
No walls means more freedom to create work you want to see. We believe there is more than one audience out there, so we’re creating work for everyone. Work that makes your heart beat.
No walls means Malta and Gozo are our stage.We want to take you to the places you’re familiar with, but also to places you’ve never been to. Somewhere far, far away.
No walls means we work with everyone; creatives, professionals, amateurs and everyone who thinks theatre can make us better.
No walls means you’re always invited.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
No, it’s a Pharaoh Hound, Malta’s National Dog. I’m sure you didn’t see that one coming; go ahead and google it, you know you want to.
(Well actually it’s Pantone Violet C not purple, but for the purpose of this narrative we’ll stick to purple)
Funny you should ask. Here at Teatru Malta, we love purple even though it’s considered to be the most superstitious colour in theatrical history.
Why is the colour purple considered to be so unlucky? Rumour has it that during Lent in the Middle Ages, a time very much associated with the colour purple, all theatre practitioners were banned from performing for a whole 44 days as a show of sacrifice, forcing artists to go hungry.
So why choose the unluckiest colour to represent us? Because here at Teatru Malta we don’t ask ‘why’, we ask ‘why not’?
Ok then, so why Lime Green?
Ask our designers. No really, ask them, they’re very friendly.
