Think Tank Session by Inizjamed

Home is where the _______ is
What, and where is home? This informal discussion will focus on the idea of displacement. What exactly is being displaced? The person? Their collective memory? Their history? And in their new surroundings, is the displacement still present? Three panellists with different backgrounds will discuss these issues and more. Literary readings will be interspersed during this discussion.

Bonġu, Bejt! revolves around three characters who become stranded on a roof after a cyclone sweeps through, leaving them stuck on Peppu’s pristine roof. The flagpole in the middle of the roof is his pride and joy. Peppu, along with the fussy Tina and the acrophobic service worker, must now find a way to safely get off the roof. Their adventure on the roof is filled with thrilling acrobatics on a massive pole and a mischievous mouse that wreaks hilarious havoc on our protagonists. But how will the discovery of a mysterious egg help them find a way off the roof safely?

This show is a co-production of ŻiguŻajg International Arts Festival for Children and Young People and Culture Venture.

A hardworking Maltese fisherman, Jesmark is faced with an agonising choice. He can repair his leaky luzzu – a traditional, multicoloured wooden fishing boat – in the hopes of eking out a meagre living at sea for his wife and newborn son, just as his father and grandfather did before him. Or he can decommission it in exchange for a European Union payout and cast his lot with an illicit operation that is decimating the Mediterranean fish population and the livelihoods of the local families who depend on it.
