The fourth edition of the Trikki Trakki youth theatre festival organized by the national theatre company Teatru Malta will be a special one dubbed the PANDEM-onju Edition. Due to the pandemic, the 2021 festival has shifted from a school festival to a festival for which everyone can apply. Applications this year have been opened to all young people ateending year 7 (Form 1), year 8 (Form 2) and year 9 (Form 3) of school and who have a passion for theatre, who were asked to send a filmed audition to then select the best applications.
Those parents of young people who have an interest in theatre should visit the Teatru Malta website and download an application form, which also contains all the details. Young people have to choose a monologue, prepare it and film it. They must then send this video together with their details to Teatru Malta by Friday 8th January 2021.
For the last three editions of the festival the schools themselves had to apply, but due to health and safety restrictions this year this was not possible. Despite the great difficulties that the theatre sector is facing, Teatru Malta decided to go ahead with the festival, but in a different form, adapted to the new situation. The PANDEM-onju edition will be a mixed one, with certain actvities that will take place online, while others will take place in the theatre, always respecting the social distances and other necessary measures.
Selected students will work on monologues specially written for them by local established writers. The direction will be in the hands of some of the best local directors, as is the tradition of Trikki Trakki. The first rehearsals of the monologues with the directors will take place online, then in the week of production between the 8th and 12th of March they will work in the theatre where they will give a show to a limited audience on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th March 2021.
