O&M launched in Malta


The O&M project was launched today at Pjazza Tritoni in Valletta. About 3,000 animal puppets, 18 local band clubs, 360 dancers, hundreds of people from various Maltese and Gozitan communities, children, elderly, persons with special needs and many others, will animate the streets of Valletta during Sfilata fil-Kapitali (Parade in the Capital), on Saturday 27th October from 2pm onwards … and everyone is invited to join them!

Orfeo & Majnun deals with themes of love, loss and longing as well as the past and the future. These themes will be retold in various forms by participants from all walks of life, who have been preparing for this performance for several months, during workshops held. The workshops introduced the stories and themes of Orfeo & Majnun to the participating communities, so they develop links with the project to enable them to participate in the collaborative creative process.
