PROĠETT FRANCIS EBEJER

As part of Teatru Malta’s ongoing commitment towards young writing and new talent this project will house our emerging writer and young directors programme. What’s the first step to being considered eligible for these programmes? Participate in one of the below events we are collaborating with, and stand to be counted for!

The MADC ONE ACT PLAY FESTIVAL – Long established in 1910, the one act play festival continues to be recognized as one of the strongest platforms for young thespians to give their talent a shot at being something more than just a hobby. The festival offers the opportunity to new directors and actors to not only compete against colleagues and friends but hone their skills. Since 2018, and in collaboration with Teatru Malta, the festival now also offers emerging writers the opportunity to also present their new work on stage. What an exciting time to be developing and making theatre!

The Bormla Short Play Festival – Recently established in 2018 by the Bormla Local Council, this festival is aimed at giving writers and directors the opportunity to have their work produced outdoors to a mainstream audience. Emerging directors and actors now have the opportunity to work with new and established writers and develop their ideas into a short play that will premiere on the Bormla stage.

As part of this collaboration with Teatru Malta, both festivals will feature discussions, mentorship programmes and workshops for the selected directors and writers. The most promising ones will then be in a position to have their work considered by three national cultural entities, namely Teatru Malta, Spazju Kreattiv and Teatru Manoel.

This year Teatru Malta will be working with the New Victorians as part of the Young Directors programme mentored by Simon Sharkey, whilst Spazju Kreattiv will be working with Kurt Gabriel Meli on a full length version of his play ‘’Il-Grada’’ mentored by Simon Bartolo.
