The performance

Featuring Marta Kwitt:

Formerly known as Teatru Marta Kwitt, the group was established in 1996. Directed by Immanuel Mifsud, TMK was one of a very small group of research theatre groups in Malta. The original line up included Romina Cachia, Albert Gatt, Stanley Mifsud and Daniela Vella, and in 1998 these performers presented MISTOQSIJIET LILL-QAMAR (Questions to the Moon): a collective performance inspired by Federico Garcia Lorca’s verse. Playing to full houses the group immediately gained a high reputation, so much so they were invited to perform at the 1999 edition of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the first Maltese theatre group to perform there. ILMA (Water) was not only peformed in that festival but also commissioned by the Maltese Government to launch its Millennium official festivities. In 2000 TMK left their residence at the Mediterranean Institute Theatre Programme (MITP) in Valletta and established base at ActionBase Studio (Naxxar), a privately owned theatre space shared with Grupp għall-Inkontri tal-Bniedem. There TMK premiered with BAKKI a very free adaptation of Euripedes’s The Bacchae. BAKKI,which was also perfromed in Sarajevo (BiH) was the frist Maltese artistic initiative to focus and discuss the social and poitical dimension of the rave culture.

Missier (u tal-Iben) and now have started working on a new production to be presented in March/April 2013.
