14/01 – 21/01/2018 – Valletta
The European Capital of Culture year begins with a unique celebration that’s worthy of the traditional Maltese Festa. During its OPEN WEEK from the 14th to the 21st of January, the capital will turn into an island-wide festa.
At the centre of the grand festa are the joy, dance, music and reverie that fill Valletta’s four main squares – St George’s Square, St John’s Square, Castille Square, and the area around the Triton Fountain – where the Catalan theatrical group, La Fura dels Baus, blurs the line between audience and performer with outdoor acrobatics, while ŻfinMalta offer contemporary dance performances. Throughout the activities, digital projections, video art and choral symphony lend the capital a wondrous and magical atmosphere.
Travelling bands and performers take the festivities to the streets, inviting residents and visitors all over the Maltese Islands to take part in this spectacular celebration.
A variety of activities will be happening in an around Valletta for the entire week, finding its peek on the 20th of January (the day where Valletta 2018 becomes European Capital of Culture). All 4 main squares (Erba’ Pjazez) will each be hosting an original spectacle of each 20 minutes long, repeated to every hour between 7-11pm.
