(In) Visibility is a double-bill performance by diverse capacity actors, dancers and musicians from Malta and Wales – Opening Doors’ Ensemble and Draig Tan Productions Ltd.

It’s happening at Valletta Campus Theatre on 08 and 09 December 2018. This performance is co-produced by Opening Doors Association who are celebrating their 10th Birthday day and Valletta Foundation 2018.

So what do Opening Doors Malta and Draig Tan Productions have in common ? Both are made up of young and talented artists with learning disabilities. These same artists receive regular training in the performing arts by professional artists.

Draig Tan Productions will be presenting their piece by Dragon’s Heart and Dragon’s Soul called T4.  In 1930s Germany a plan was formed to create a master race.  The central services of this plan, Aktion T4, housed at Tiergartenstrasse 4 in Berlin was known as T4.  As there was no room in this master race for people with a disability the regime killed 70,000 intellectually and physically impaired people.  This production celebrates the humanity and worth of the people deemed imperfect by this regime.

In the Second Act, Opening Doors Ensemble will present The Secret , a piece inspired by the iconic story of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This timeless story with its profound moral values that speaks to all ages.  ‘The Secret’ is the result of a collaboration called (In)Visibility between Opening Doors Association and Valletta 2018 Foundation. This performance is part of a three-show series previewed in Malta and Leeds (UK).

This performance is a culmination of several months of intense workshops and activities involving a group of 13 performers with learning difficulties – dancers, actors and musicians, 3 collaborators and 3 facilitators .The original work was created by Carol Brown of Draig Tan Productions (Wales) however in this performance we are presenting a new version that has been developed further by the Opening Doors artistic team and performers.
