XENI / A retrospective of set design in Malta
10 January - 24 February| free
Dates: 10 January – 23 February 2020
Venue: Space C, Spazju Kreattiv
XENI is a retrospective project curated by Italian set designer Romualdo Moretti who has worked with the most prominent theatre companies across Malta and Gozo. This project is produced by Teatru Malta in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv with the intention of providing audiences with a rare backstage pass into the past decade of local scenography. The exhibition will feature sets, props and models from past productions belonging to 12 local and international set designers produced for various theatre production companies in the last 10 years.
EXHIBITION / The theatre world is constantly evolving: new materials, new technologies, new ideas, all of which require the abilities of a capable set designer to see each artistic vision through from design to stage. The set plays a pivotal role in the narrative of any production, a role which calls for a collaborative relationship between set painters, set builders and light designers.
WORKSHOPS / The Workshops will cover set painting, set building and light design, are open to the general public through application and will offer a hands-on experience under the tutelage of foreign and local tutors.
TALKS / A series of talks by veterans in the local theatre sphere, from actors, to critics to set designers will discuss various subjects relating to stage design and their experience on stage.
