Following a successful world premiere of Paolo Mangiola’s Voyager, ŻfinMalta will now be taking its full-length creation to theatres around the Maltese islands.
41 years ago, American astronomer and astrophysicist Carl Sagan thought of sending a time capsule into outer space that would give intelligent life a snapshot of Earth’s diversity, sounds, feelings and thoughts through 116 analog encoded images.
Launched on the Voyager Spacecrafts in 1977, the Golden Records, were expected to remain intelligible for more than a billion years.
Fascinated by Sagan’s work, ŻfinMalta’s artistic director and choreographer Paolo Mangiola got wondering what NASA would send into outer space were it to repeat the same exercise today. How would we represent our past, our present, and our hopes for the future?
A full Maltese team, including visual artist Austin Camilleri, composer Veronique Vella and designer Luke Azzopardi collaborated with Mangiola to create an experience that propels its audience into a world of introspection, self-discovery and reflection on the way human beings are treating this fragile pale blue dot.
