If you’re looking for an alternative evening this weekend, head down to the MITP theatre in St Christopher Street Valletta, for Grace u Rofflu, the latest offering from rubberbodies.
This performance is the product of a series of improvisation workshops and charts the relationship between two characters, Grace and Rofflu. Through movement, theatre, music and visual art, this is a labyrinth of magical and dark-tinted scenes, exploring hidden feelings, domestic violence and loss.
The two performers will be accompanied by a cello and guitar, a dome-shaped skirt, a rusty wheeled bath and a super top hat. How do Grace and Rofflu relate to these objects? And what happens when they disappear and they are forced to confront the reality of their relationship?
Grace u Rofflu has no verbal language at all and runs for 50 minutes. Prior to the performance, there will be a 13 minute monologue in Maltese by Kevin Attard. Seating is limited to 150 for each evening.
Both performances on 18th and 19th September start at 20.00hrs. Click here for directions to get to the theatre venue.
