Republic Street will also be turned into an open space theater to host ‘B’Tal-Linja Jaqbillek‘. This is a story that revolves around a Maltese bus which, actually, will be the cast’s touring vehicle; a splendid specimen of our beloved Malta-built buses refurbished to its former glory. The audience will be invited to watch the live performance up-close and personal. Everyone will experience it differently, you can get chairs, stand-up, sit down on the zuntier, at the cafeteria close-by, or just in front of the actors. In fact, it’s all free to watch! Think of the audience watching the purċissjoni ritual, the lovely tradition of teatrin, the conversations għana-style spiced up with a pinch of carnival, a dose of festa, and a spoonful of Maltese humour.

Time: 2.30PM
