La Valetta, Malta

Within the framework of EU Collective Plays, Èpica has been addressing the subject of memory in all its aspects: memetic, illustrated, digital, memories of refugees, experiences of victims… It is now time to explore the kinds of memories that a place is able to transmit. Site Memory takes place in Malta, a location that throughout history has exerted a strategic point in the Mediterranean for all those who have wanted to travel, trade and battke. The spaces of Malta breathe stories, cuisines, religions and messages of all kinds due to the mixture of cultures and events that have taken place there throughout the centuries.

This is why La Fura dels Baus, in collaboration with local artists, wants to develop a collective creation with the exchange of experiences and knowledge that characterizes all of Èpica’s workshops in order to explore the stories that Malta’s spaces are able to offer. It took two weeks of intensive work that culminated on October 7 with two performances during La Valletta’s Notte Bianca.
