CELEBRATING STUDIO 18'S 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
IL-GIDDIEB GĦOMRU TWIL
Right. Wrong. Both. Yes. No. Maybe. Black. White. Grey.
Is there room for a clean conscience in the modern world? Is there anything to be had from being a ‘good boy’? Do liars really come to a sticky end? What would Pinocchio think today?
Penned by Anton Saliba and directed by Jean-Marc Cafa’, Studio 18’s ‘Il-Giddieb Għomru Twil’ is a twisted tale that delves into the woes of a culture of impunity. Inspired by Collodi’s Pinocchio, the piece brings the renowned puppet’s story to a local level – but rather than simply accepting the pre-set binaries of right and wrong, Pinocchio questions his very conscience, sending him on a journey that will push his moral fibre to the brink.
An hour of punches and surprises accompanied by Aleandro Spiteri Monsigneur’s re-orchestration of Maltese tunes and movement directed by Rochelle Gatt, this new piece of theatre promises to keep it real.
