That was one cold and busy January! Since getting back to the office our team has been focused on not only opening and closing off applications for Trikki Trakki but also launching Atelier Francis Ebejer, a passion project and joint initiative with Spazju Kreattiv and Teatru Manoel.

We would like to start off by thanking all those who were in attendance for our Atelier Francis Ebejer introductory session last Thursday. It was an absolute pleasure to get to discuss the future of this initiative with our guest speakers, attendees and associate artists who form part of the Atelier’s board together with PCO artistic directors Sean Buhagiar (Teatru Malta), Kenneth Zammit Tabona (Teatru Manoel) and Daniel Azzopardi (Spazju Kreattiv). Derived from its very own definition the Atelier is intended to be a safe space where artists can come together, discuss and create work. The Atelier is yet another offshoot from parent projects Premju and Progett Francis Ebejer. Applications for the Atelier are now open, so if you’re interested in joining our circle then click here to find out more and apply.

An impressive amount of applications came through for this year’s special edition of Trikki Trakki Festival and though we would have loved nothing more than to choose everyone, due to the current restrictions we sadly had to limit the number of chosen participants to ensure the safety of all those involved. The festival will be taking place in March and we’re very excited to see what these children will manage to create together with their directors. Stay tuned to our social media for more updates on their rehearsal process in the run-up to the big festival week. 

We are also currently working on a very special Carnival project with Festivals Malta which you’ll find out more about very soon. This week we will also be launching a brand new series on our socials, so make sure that you keep your eyes out for our stories this coming Wednesday.

That’s about it from us for now, but before we leave we’d just like to remind you that more information about the DIY theatre package Alice in Wonderless Land is available online, so if you’re an organisation, school or drama teacher looking to order a doll then click here to find out how to get in touch or read director Sean Buhagiar’s exclusive interview with Metal Magazine to find out more about the ins and outs of this unique project.

Ciao for now.
