Żigużajg international arts festival

L’homme Qui Marche (Proġett Preca)

L’homme Qui Marche (Proġett Preca)

L’homme Qui Marche (Proġett Preca), part of ŻiguŻajg, is a school-based, site-specific project by Teatru Malta and French theatre group Image Aigue, in collaboration with Valletta 2018, the Drama Unit and the French embassy, that sees how children from San Ġorġ Preca College were involved in making it all come together.

Through specifically devised dramatic arts workshops, the children worked with theatre professionals to create a carefully curated, tried-and-tested pastiche of music, text and images.

The event is taking place today at 5.30pm at Spazju Kreattiv, St James Cavalier, Valletta.

Film about teenage boy

Wallay is about Ady, a 13-year-old boy who no longer listens to his father, who raised him single-handedly. But his father has run out of resources and has decided to entrust Ady to his uncle Amadou for the summer.

Uncle Amadou and his family live in Burkina Faso!

There, at the start of his teen years, Ady’s life will change and he will start to understand things differently.

The film in French, with English subtitles, will show tomorrow at 5pm at Spazju Kreattiv, St James Cavalier.

Journey of visuals and dance

Play/Ground is a journey that unfolds through stunning visuals and dance full of savvy characters – an exciting piece that explores the adventurous world of a post-apocalyptic fairytale.

Children will be able to play their game and experience, first-hand, the building of a virtual community, made up of the most curious oddballs on the block.

This is an immersive experience performed by a cast of inventive youths.

Performances will be held today, tomorrow and on Sunday at 7pm, 11.30am and 6pm respectively at the Valletta Campus Theatre. Recommended for children aged 11+.

Air quality at schools

The Environment and Resources Authority is participating in a European project involving the monitoring of air quality by schools.

Specially-designed sensors will monitor the levels of nitrogen dioxide gas, produced by vehicles, around Maltese schools to determine the effects of transport on air quality, and to find out whether changes in the way children are taken to school will result in improved air quality.

This year, the ERA and ŻiguŻajg have collaborated to promote this initiative and to showcase a selection of artworks created by schoolchildren on the theme.

This visual arts project, on display at the main staircase of Spazju Kreattiv, will run until Sunday.
