MCAST ICA Festival 2022
The MCAST ICA Festival was founded three years ago as an innovative concept for the annual exhibition within the MCAST Institute of Creative Arts.
The main goal of this festival is to raise awareness and create an event that inspires and creates anticipation in connection with MCAST for years to come. This happened because there was room for emancipation; from a simple exhibition to a festive event celebrating Creative Arts.
This art festival will be working for the union between the Institute of Creative Arts within MCAST and the rest of the community. Accordingly, it will result in a better understanding of what we are and what we do. This event will celebrate creativity and will serve as a platform to showcase the demanding work of students in collaboration with the industry.
Out of the System: Triple Bill
Language: English and Maltese Certificate: 15+ Duration: 1hr 50min Date and time: Friday 8th and Saturday 9th July 2022 at 8pm Sunday 10th July 2022 at 7pm
‘Out of the System’ presents three performances staged by the performing arts students from MCAST ICA who will be graduating this year.
‘Electric Dream’ reflects on the cinematography of the film Blade Runner through dancing and the use of varied lighting (this performance will only take place on Friday 8th and Sunday 10th July).
‘Giulietta’ is a feminist interpretation of the classic play of Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare’s pen. The performance raises questions such as ‘How does Guilietta act in today’s modern world? How do you seduce Romeo and what do you do to get the audience’s attention? ‘
‘5T1NG’, explores the theme of overstimulation through an expressionist lens. A doctor who refers to herself as g.0.d prepares a simulation with three women. g.0.d provides them with challenges and with a death sentence imposed on them, women begin to wonder where they are, whom they can trust, and what they have wrong.
