The theatre world is constantly evolving: new materials, new technologies, new ideas, all of which require the abilities of a capable set designer to see each artistic vision through from design to stage. The set plays a pivotal role in the narrative of any production, a role which calls for a collaborative relationship between set painters, set builders and light designers. XENI is a retrospective project curated by Italian set designer Romualdo Moretti whose worked with the most prominent theatre companies across Malta and Gozo. This project is produced by Teatru Malta in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv with the intention of providing audiences with a rare backstage pass into the past decade of local scenography. The exhibition will feature sets, props and models from past productions belonging to 12 local and international set designers produced for various theatre production companies in the last 10 years.
