In this immersive hybrid performance directed by Elli Papakonstantinou, visuals, music, text and interviews unite to form a “Baroque pastiche” that’s rife with passion, innocence, gambling and mistrust. Każin Barokk plays with many sources, including Regnard’s The Gamester, Pushkin’s The Queen of Spades and Dostoyevsky’s The Gambler. As a decadent cast of lovers, saints and sinners go about the maze-like performance, the piece becomes a soul-searching experience that invites contemporary audiences to influence its structure while exploring Valletta’s Baroque aesthetic.
The work involves a team of actors, musicians, and even a robotics team! Local composer Alexander Vella Gregory will be working with Greek composer Tilemachos Moussas to create music that embraces Baroque and contemporary aesthetics involving a small male choir, female voices, and even a small brass band.
