Penned by the author and poet Immanuel Mifsud and in collaboration with Theatre Anon, Dik Is-Siġra f’Nofs ta’ Triq, is a promenade performance that tells the story of one particular street where everybody knows everybody, and everybody knows everything, or not quite everything, but almost. The pressures and false promises of progress are weighing heavily on the community and the majestic tree that crowns the middle of this long and winding road. An old tree which rumour has it, was there much before the road itself. Has the tree become an inconvenience? We fret so. Or so we hear.
Mifsud taps into this age-old story of tension between past and present, giving us a story which is both real and metaphorical, brimming with magical realism. Filled with fantastical characters and a cast of over 20 performers, this show is a rollercoaster of emotions promising magical visuals, acrobatics, memorable songs, and a truly unique experience.
With 90% recycled sets and costumes, this is an environmentally conscious performance. This piece will be our first time performing at the MCAST Paola campus, next to our new offices, and will premiere at the Malta International Arts Festival.
This production is being done in collaboration with Theatre Anon. for the Malta International Arts Festival and supported by MCAST and Arts Council Malta.
