About this event

On October 7th, 2022, at 7pm, our performances are resurrected to life once again! For those who came in-person, we hope to fill you with nostalgia. For those who missed it, you can watch at the comfort of your own home!

With his vivid personality, singer-songwriter John Hinton (who collaborated with researcher Alexia Massa-Gallucci) will entertain us through music with the serious topic of climate change. Psychology student organisation Betapsi will empower us to keep fighting for our breaths with their dance "Gasping for air". A dance theatre performance by Sandra Mifsud focus on the need of nature for us to reconnect with ourselves, our creativity and save our planet. Simone Cutajar, Marthese Formosa and Martin Bonnici (Shadeena Entertainment) with their audiovisual experience Solitary Bee takes us on a journey around the Maltese Islands meeting a host of colourful characters. Last but not least, through the EU-funded project JustNature, researcher and performer Moe Soliman will take you and your family on an expedition to the very heart of our planet. With these enticing shows, you will be gently reminded to appreciate and protect the true beauty of our Earth.

By registering on Eventbrite, you will receive a link for our questionnaire and a separate email to watch the performances online!
