Malta Festival for THeatre and Performance Art

 Malta Festival is the name of one of the most well-known international theatre and performance art festivals in Poland

 Malta Festival is the name of one of the most well-known international theatre and performance art festivals in Poland.

This year the festival will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Unfortunately, the corona pandemic prevented the planned festivities and instead, a number of cultural events will be held in urban spaces or on the web.

The history of the festival is linked with the birth of democracy and freedom of expression in Poland. The first edition of the festival dates back to 1901 and the implosion of the Soviet Union. However, in Poland Communism collapsed two years earlier and namely in 1989 when the first democratic election was held.

From the very outset in 1991, the festival became a venue of multicultural encounters of artists from all over the world – a colorful meeting place of various languages and cultural backgrounds.

Throughout the years, in addition to outdoor performances the festival hosted some of the most prominent artists and ensembles on the international art scene. Outdoor concerts attracted thousands of aficionados. Among the performers were world-famous names such as Goran Granovic, Buena Vista Social Club, Beirut, Sinead O’Çonnor’, Faith No More, Coco Rosie and the Animal Collective and others.
