KAŻIN BAROKK

07/09/2018 - 09/09/2018
KAŻIN BAROKK

In this immersive hybrid performance directed by Elli Papakonstantinou, visuals, music, text and interviews unite to form a “Baroque pastiche” that’s rife with passion, innocence, gambling and mistrust. Każin Barokk plays with many sources, including Regnard’s The Gamester, Pushkin’s The Queen of Spades and Dostoyevsky’s The Gambler. As a decadent cast of lovers, saints and sinners go about the maze-like performance, the piece becomes a soul-searching experience that invites contemporary audiences to influence its structure while exploring Valletta’s Baroque aesthetic. Collaborations with students, local artists and practitioners create a fluid connection between the Maltese Baroque tradition and contemporary society, between popular and high art.

Price: €5
