Wonderland is not always what it seems. A DIY-Theatre package, in collaboration with Żigużajg Festival and inspired by societal ideals, Alice in Wonderless Land will reflect the way society compartmentalises women into boxes just like dolls by creating… its very own doll.

This production will be unique to any other the company has ever produced, as they’ll be packaging the show and sending this beautifully broken doll directly to schools and organisations, with a set of instructions for the students to unravel! In conjunction, the company will also be translating twenty-one of Franca Rame’s texts to Maltese with Professor Simone Galea and Dr Marco Galea.

Il-pajjiż tal-meravilji mhuwiex dejjem dak li taħsbu. Produzzjoni li toffri pakkett sħiħ ta’ ‘Teatru DIY’, b’kollaboazzjoni ma’ Teatru Malta u ispirata mill-ideali tas-soċjetà, Alice fil-pajjiż bla Meravilji tirrifletti dwar il-mod kif is-soċjetà tikkumpartimentalizza n-nisa f’kaxxi daqslikieku kienu pupi billi toħloq … pupa hi stess!

Din il-produzzjoni se tkun unika minn kwalunkwe produzzjoni li saret minn Teatru Malta, minħabba li l-ispettaklu flimkien ma’ din il-pupa sabiħa u mkissra se jintbagħtu fl-iskejjel kif ukoll f’għaqdiet, b’sett ta’ istruzzjonijiet għall-istudenti biex jiskopru iktar dwarha! Fl-istess waqt 21 test ta’ Franca Rame nqaleb għall-Malti minn Prof. Simone Galea u Dr Marco Galea.
