Watch: What makes us Maltese in the new century?

During the eighth episode of Newsbook.com.mt‘s online cultural programme ‘Take a Bow‘, Coryse Borg interviews actor/director Andrè Agius who is one of the performers in Dù Theatre’s Repubblika Immakulata’, a co-production with Spazju Kreattiv.

This is Dù’s first production after the theatre company took a four-year hiatus. The satirical comedy is written and directed by Simone Spiteri, and the play explores what makes us Maltese in the new century. About how what once upon a time defined us as ‘Maltese’ might not necessarily be the case or valid anymore. And while we all hold onto a nostalgic memory of our collective identity, the 21st century keeps challenging us… whether we’re ready for it or not.

The rest of the cast is made up of Magdalena van Kuilenburg, Mark Mifsud, Andrè Mangion, Pierre Stafrace, Kristjana Casha and Ryan Cutajar.

Repubblika Immakulata will be performed at Spazju Kreattiv Theatre on the 29th to the 31st March and the 5th to the 7th April at 8.00 pm.
