ALICE IN WONDERLESS LAND
Alice in Wonderless Land is a ready-to-assemble theatre piece conceived during the Covid-19 pandemic. But it's not just that—here the audience will become the theatre-maker.
Designed to convey the message that society works on patriarchal principles and in many ways treats women as objects, this project is based on a text by Franca Rame and Dario Fo, loosely inspired by the story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
The DIY experience intends to lead each participant to experience the show by providing them with the tools and instructions to do so. The instructions provided are inspired by ready to assemble furniture pieces and shadow puppetry instructions. In simple terms, you are not making your own show—we are making a show together.
Ilħna Mitlufa is a celebration of the Maltese tradition għana, a vocal expression inherited from the land to which we were once deeply connected. It is a musical journey that goes in search of the voice we once had which was to express daily fears and aspirations.
It is an age-old story, woven by singers past and present, told in poetry—spoken, written and recorded—where the għannej as poet, entertainer and storyteller sings for those who have lost their voice, renewing the unbroken tradition of joining together in song. Ilħna Mitlufa is a quest to find one’s voice through song, when words are not enough.
Min Hi? (Who is She?)
A solo theatrical performance, featuring actress Lee-N Abela portraying several different female characters from mythology, the bible and literature. Each of the six scenes is curated to a degree of art installation by director & composer Ruben Zahra, capturing dismal narratives within visually stunning aesthetics.
NASSABA: SONG OF A BIRD JIMMY GRIMA
In Nassaba: Song Of A Bird, Jimmy Grima follows his father, who is a bird-trapper, to the fields as he did as a child, but this time with a camera. In under one hour, Jimmy documents and unravels the world, the sentiments and the arts of his father and his peers, who know how to whistle and call like singing birds.
Nassaba: Song of a Bird by Jimmy Grima/the rubberbodies collective (MT/NL), produced by the rubberbodies collective in collaboration with Teatru Malta, has just finished a tour in the Netherlands and Switzerland over the course of the summer! We also couldn't be more pleased to be bringing this project back home to Malta this October at the Catholic Institute in Floriana on Saturday 30th.
