L-AVVIŻI – JUNE 2021
Summer is round the corner and with it so is our Research and Development call deadline for our Il-Fidwa tal- Bdiewa workshop with The New Victorians. This is a unique opportunity to get to buckle down with a number of artists and create and work together in the same safe space. You have until June 20th to apply so don’t waste any time, and click here! If you have any questions just send us an email or drop us a message on Facebook and we’ll get back in no time.
June also means that it’s European Theatre Convention month which reminds us to re-congratulate author and associate artist Simone Spiteri whose Teatru Malta commissioned piece just got accepted to be part of ‘Pipelines’ – A new ETC collaborative project that tackles the question “What kind of drama does fossil energy provoke in your country?”. We look forward to staging this work in progress in 2022.
Speaking of ETC, Teatru Malta will also be flying (someone pinch us) to Austria next week for the 2022 European Theatre Convention which will be taking place in the gorgeous city of Graz. Artistic Programme Coordinator Mireille Estelle Camilleri will be reporting live throughout the convention during next week’s Takeover Thursday, which we can assure will not be one to miss. Tune in for all the exciting convention updates.
Have you given our first ever podcast a listen yet? Then you should, because it’s great, no really it’s very interesting and what’s more interesting is that during our first episode of Teatru Redifjuxin, hosted by our very own Christian Debono, we interview theatre maker, educator, researcher and the newly announced director and writer of the Manuel Dimech project: Dr Victor Jacono. Just pop in those headphones on your way to work or while you’re out on break and give us a listen. Oh, and if you’re not in the mood for a podcast then give our short film Rinaxximent a watch. The film, which ranked amongst the top 10 films submitted, and will be showcased in ‘The Theatre Times’ prestigious online festival, stars young actress Leah Grech and is available on demand through this link here.
For now we’ll continue location scouting through Malta and Gozo for next year’s production venues while carrying out conversations with a couple of ministries, creatives and elderly communities to fine tune a number of projects in the pipeline – exciting times indeed.
BONUS: WATCH as Leah reacts to watching herself on screen for the first time since filming Rinaxximent last March and discusses the theme of Renaissance in theatre.
