MEDIA PRESENCE

It-TEATRU TAL-MISKIN

Brought to life by a cast who identify as members of the LGBTQI+ community, the musical was a queer coming of age story about intolerance, innate hatred and fear of “the other”. Based on the testimonials, words and feelings of the LGBTQI+ community shared directly with us - the musical actively tackles gay hate crimes, LGBTQI+ acceptance in Malta, hate speech, freedom of expression, and LGBTQI+ visibility in the arts. Standing as an advocate for these issues is not a light responsibility, which is why we believe that the piece championed the community throughout its entire process. 

 

Teatru tal-Miskin truly started new conversations. Young people disclosed with us that it helped start conversations with their close ones about their identities. And this is why I believe this piece deserves this accolade. 

 

It- Teatru tal-Miskin played 11 performances between 23/09/23 - 20/11/23

 

(Total of 32 professional artists delivering the show to an audience of 1,300 members of our community and its allies)

IL-KOMUNITA' TAL-MISKIN

STRAND 1

A series of workshops with the young LGBTQI+ community to inspire and develop the new Maltese musical Teatru tal-Miskin. Target communities included working with members of the LGBTQI+ community, students in secondary and tertiary education levels and voluntary organisations who work with young people- all of which are at the forefront of LGBTQI+ conversations. It-Teatru tal-Miskin had to be a platform for the concerns and thoughts of this community, therefore their voice had to be present. Workshops included writing camps, focus groups, feedback sessions, informative sessions about the arts, sessions with youth workers and complimentary ticket offers for the show. The strand also ensured a partnership with the European Union Year of Youth to establish widespread (and international) awareness.
