Dun Karm (2011)
a collaboration with Mavin Khoo dance
74, Splendid, Strait Street, Valletta
A performance installation to mark the 50th anniversaryof the death of Malta’s national poet Dun Karm Psaila. Dun Karm spent days of solitude in his home in Valletta from which emerged a series of patriotic sonnets with spiritual references. Four bodies encompassed Dun Karm’s poetry and inhabited the spaces in Splendid house on Strada Stretta. They revisit Malta’s identity, taking on the concept of gender at a time when religion and politics stringently shaped the culture.
