Description

MARA is an original, multidisciplinary piece, celebrating women through time by means of sound manipulation and electro-acoustic music, performed live by The New Victorians. An ensemble-driven piece starring an all-female Maltese company. From inventors and scientists, to artists and activists. From musicians and politicians, to writers, to fighters, to mothers. MARA is an audio-theatrical journey through time, highlighting the fact that every story is worth telling, and that no voice should be silenced.

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 30 days ago

Taking on the voices of a group of monumental and important women throughout history, MARA embodies them physically and vocally with stunningly committed and skillful character work.
