A contemporary performance and communal meal by the Xwejni Salt Pans in Gozo is currently being prepared….
L-Ikla t-Tajba, Teatru Malta’s latest production with the support of Valletta 2018, is billed as “the show of the summer”. What better way to spend a warm August night than by the Xwejni Salt Pans, watching a marvellous contemporary performance while dining and drinking under the stars?
Under the superb direction of acclaimed Romanian director Nona Ciobanu, the show will be laced with the poetry of beloved poet Immanuel Mifsud. Our Michelin Star cast includes favourites like Teatru Anon’s Paul Portelli, Charlotte Grech, Liliana Portelli and Pierre Stafrace; as well as Rebecca Camilleri & Ira Melkonyan from The Rubberbodies Collective; Martina Georgina & Julia Camilleri from Teatru Santwarju; the remarkable Ruth Borg; and up-and-comer Lisa Farrugia.
The show will not only be a feast for the eyes, but with food and drinks provided by Joseph from Gozo’s own Ta’ Mena Estate, this will definitely be a feast for your stomachs too. With every €20.00 ticket audience members are entitled to not only watch the show but join in the ‘majjalata’ afterwards and wash it down with a complimentary glass of Ta’ Mena wine. A bar will also be open for whoever wishes to make the most out of the beautiful setting.
The lines between cooking and theatre will be blurred as performance and gastronomy become one. Don’t miss out on this one-off culinary experience and dig in this August at the Xwejni Salt Pans in Zebbug Gozo from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th August, 2018
This project is supported by the Valletta 2018 foundation, Arts Council Malta, The Ministry for Gozo and LESA. For more information on tickets and menu please visit www.teatrumalta.org.mt or call 2122 0255
