Runway Malta Spring Summer 2012

Image
Following the very successful AutumnWinter 2011 edition, Runway Malta is back in full force for the springsummer season. Showcasing a collection of designers from all over the world, the event is a collaboration of fashion, art, design and a launch-pad for new local designers wanting to make it abroad. Set to a backdrop of traditional Maltese landscape at Montekirsto Estate, Runway Malta is the only full night international fashion event on the island. For a night, the venue is transformed into a catwalk theatre, exhibition hall, entertainment area and dancefloor. The night is broken up into hourly shows in the giant auditorium, while local businesses and labels put on exhibitions, installations, competitions and presentations in the entrance hall in between shows. The public was so taken aback by this Fashion Week style set-up last season, that the demand for a continuation became too huge for the organisers to ignore. Last season was kind of a trial, so to speak. We didnt know how the …

9 Parts of Desire

Image
9 Parts of Desireproject has three parts to it.
First part is the Play, bearing the same title.  The play speaks about 9 Iraqi women during the gulf war.  9 characters speaking to the audience in a series of monologues.  Some are funny but other are quite tragic.  The idea of the play is to celebrate life and the resilience or endurance of women in these situations, a positive message indeed, without eliminating the harsh nature of the situations these women find themselves in.The play itself is very powerful and should not be missed.
Second part is that the crew are flying the playwright, Heather Raffo to Malta.  The US Embassy and the Malta Council for the Voluntary sector are helping them financially and logistically to see her here.  She is pretty much available to talk to the audience after the performance in a forum theatre style.  They would like to organize a seminar with her, by inviting associations and organizations involved with feminine issues to discuss these issues and th…

Eden Comedy Club does it Again

Image
A theatre packed with laughter as the Eden Comedy Club does it again.
Four critically acclaimed British comedians took to the stage at Eden Cinemas on Friday, 10 February 2012 as they performed to a sold out theatre for Eden Comedy Clubsecond Stand-Up Comedy Night.
The highly anticipated event was sponsored by Mr. Potato Crisps, and featured a quirky line-up, which included the man behind the Tinky Winky costume – Dave Thompson - who served as MC for the night. The audience was left in stitches at every turn, as his cheeky wit and effortless charm mesmerized the crowd.
Notoriously spontaneous, Matt Price was the opening act for the night - entertaining the crowd with his audience walkabouts, enticing story-telling and deep, commanding tone. His presence filled the room instantaneously. Andrew Watts followed his act with an enticing blend of honest storytelling and dark humour. The Oxford graduates pompous appearance and soft, almost shy tone paved a set of expectations which compliment…

Rugby Report 18 February 2012

Kavallieri 29 vs Birkirkara Alligators 0
This match was looked upon as a test to see whether the “new” Alligators could continue their dramatic improvement against the Kavallieri who were fielding some of their experienced internationals but also a number of newcomers and juniors who have come up through the club.
In fact it was disappointing in that for the first half Alligators were strangely disjointed, and gave away ground straight from kick off with wild pass across their own line which was dropped. So Kavallieri were camped on the Gators line for the first five minutes until they incurred a penalty, which was the only way Gators looked like breaking out. 
Most of the play was in Gators half until Kavallieri hoisted what looked like an aimless high kick. However it was allowed to bounce and the two bounces completely fooled the defence, the second into Debierre’s hands for him to score.
Kavallieri continued to dominate territorially and spun the ball along the line to the wing, but …
