Alice in a Wonderless Land
Wonderland is not always what it seems, and this year Teatru Malta will be putting this theory to the test by turning things on their heads and presenting a ‘DIY-Theatre’ package in collaboration with Żigużajg Festival this November. Inspired by societal ideals, Alice in a Wonderless Land will reflect the way society compartmentalizes women into boxes like dolls by creating…it’s very own doll. The production will be unique to any other we’ve ever produced, as we’ll be packaging the show, Franca Rame’s Alice nel paese senza Meraviglie, and sending this beautifully broken doll directly to schools and organizations with a set of instructions for the students m to unravel!
In conjunction with this, we will also be translating twenty-one of Franca Rame’s texts to Maltese with Professor Simone Galea and Dr Marco Galea, and will be publishing them alongside the premiere of the project in November 2020, which will be devised and directed by Sean Buhagiar and supported by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura.
