Nanni, a man who is bewitched with Pina, also desires her daughter Mara, thus consuming himself and those close to him. Mara does not want Nanni at first however grows to love him resulting in her disowning her mother thus escalating her mother’s decent into madness.

THE KNIGHTS DEFENDED IT - THE TURKS COULDN’T DESTROY IT - WE WILL ROCK IT!

Crossroads @ Zabbar

Image
In what is being considered to be one of the biggest free events in Malta, Crossroads@Zabbar will feature some of Malta’s best acts in three separate, but close, venues.

This event, which is fit for all ages, is being held in three different venues which stem from Zabbars’ crossroads found in the city’s main street.





The square known as il-Venda will feature one of the biggest names in Malta’s rock scene, Ira Losco & Band live in concert. Inevitably the concert, featuring some of her chart-topping singles, will be one to remember.

The renowned facade of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Graces will shine like never before through an audio-visual show and animated 3D high power projections. A number of high power projectors, brought to Malta specifically for the event, will bring the facade to life during four shows held at different times throughout the night.  Not to be missed!

The third venue, the historical square known as il-Misraħ will offer a typical Maltese night starring local perso…

Genesis presents Petar Dundov

Image
GENESIS returns for its sixth instalment, Celebrating it’s 2nd year anniversary, this time hosting Croatian legend Petar Dundov at The Playground.

To Dundov, “techno is music that precedes movement. It is dance music, solid enough to carry emotions through the dance floor and abstract enough to be a template for ever”. And indeed his breathtaking productions embody this ethos, serving the inherent function of making your body pulse spontaneously while also challenging your brain with its complex melodies and slow-burning, hypnotic progressions. It’s the antidote for anyone who thinks that techno is about senseless, dull looping.




Although maybe the word “techno” doesn’t give enough detail about his style, it’s probably the nearest ballpark to whose principles his music adheres – and he is keen to expand the horizons of what people know and expect of the genre. But it’s that sense of his tracks being alive, forever evolving and expanding and increasing in intensity, which gives his music …

Stephan Bodzin (Live)

Image
Stephan Bodzin has been a hugely influential figure within the global techno scene for years. The reason the German has endured where many had fallen by the wayside is because of his devotion to authenticity. “Without it, everything would appear to be nothing more than a hollow shell,” says the son of an experimental musician who is now a revered talent in his own right.




After starting out by composing music for several prestigious European theaters, Stephan Bodzin soon fell in love with nocturnal club sounds and began producing his own brand of techno. His productions are driving, & hypnotic with a very real and memorable sense of melody that sticks long in the mind. 

In the club Bodzin is an impressive live specialist who creates mesmerising, high impact soundtracks on the fly. Across all continents, there is barely a club or festival in the world worth its salt that he hasn’t headlined at some point or other.

Line-up: Stephan Bodzin (live), manthrax and more TBA

Tom Van Maldere - Except for Access only

Image
For his solo exhibition, except for access only at Malta Contemporary Art Tom Van Malderen presents a series of objects that due to denominations of scale, materiality and context sit somewhere between sculptural objects and architectural models - at a juncture between the field of architecture and that of art. While many of the reflections that have made their way in the exhibition can be traced back to architecture, they feel equally relevant and stimulating when brought into an art context.



The humorous exhibition title - except for access only - lifted off a DIY sign that was found in the Maltese countryside is a misconstrued phrase made up by someone who, so intent on denying access, merges ‘except for access’ and ‘access only’. The result is humorous, yet we are aware that it masks a graver gesture: territorialising public space. It is this vacillation between levity and gravity that marks Van Malderen’s tone throughout the exhibition.

Isolationism and segregation are further expl…
