The Malta International Arts Festival, which premiered its first video on the 19th of June, has featured numerous shows with collaborations from over 100 local artists in the dance, music and theatre scene. 

The festival is clearly showcasing the solidarity of Maltese artists, as they come together in 12 emotional productions that mesmerise their audience with their beauty and artistic expression.

The festival also includes an ‘Archive Series’, that consists of 5 memorable videos from last year’s edition. If you missed a video from this spectacular show, you can re-watch all the MIAF 2020 performances here.

77 and 7 Days – Thursday 2nd July

The last monologue of this festival – penned by author Malcolm Galea, with the participation of local actor Mikhail Basmadjian – is a dark piece about dying alone and asks whether if on the day you die you were given an option to either go ahead with it or to go back and live your life all over again.  Would you do it?  Would you change anything?  

String Quartet – Friday 3rd July

The latest performance from the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra is a string quartet, where the instruments will be combined in a symphony celebrating the work of the late Maltese composer Joseph Vella. This project is produced in collaboration with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and Spazju Kreattiv.
