L-Ikla t-Tajba is both a theatre performance and a culinary experience. The interactive take on the ultimate Maltese meal features ingredients from our past, delicacies from the present, and an unusual yet wonderful food experience for all audiences to enjoy. This will not be your average dinner – you will be participating in and co-creating a contemporary theatrical performance.

Under the direction of acclaimed Romanian director Nona Ciobanu, the show will be laced with the poetry of Immanuel Mifsud. Performing alongside each other are favourites such as Teatru Anon’s Paul Portelli, Charlotte Grech, Liliana Portelli and Pierre Stafrace as well as Rebecca Camilleri & Ira Melkonyan from The Rubberbodies Collective, Martina Georgina & Julia Camilleri from Teatru Santwarju, Ruth Borg and Lisa-Farrugia.
