WHAT'S ON Dwarna with Mariella Dimech every Tuesday at 21.00 on TVM2 IMAGINE: 2000 light bulbs over a block of buildings in Republic Street which can all be controlled by you! Festuni – light-bulb festoons that tra- ditionally decorate rooftops and village squares during festa time – will be given a make-over fit for 2016 in an installation by Andrew Schembri, Festa Festun, which will consist of spectacular festuni which can be controlled by the spectators themselves. At the far end of Valletta, at the majestic Fort St. Elmo, designers and creatives will be showcasing their work. Berlin-based activists Urban Action will be holding a four-day workshop that will cul- minate in a presentation of ideas for a better, more engaging urban environment where we can ac- tively work, live and play. Flights have been booked for the members of NONOTAK Studio – a collaboration between illus- trator Noemi Schipfer and archi- tect musician Takami Nakamoto. The duo work on light and sound installations, creating an ethereal, immersive and dreamlike envi- ronment meant to envelope those who visit Piazza D'Armi inside Fort St Elmo. All of Valletta, from the city's entrance to the tip of the penin- sula, will be once again buzzing with activity for this year's Notte Bianca. Preparations are well un- der way for the largest annual cultural event taking place in the capital city. On Saturday 1st Oc- tober, Valletta's streets and ven- ues will come alive with a varied programme of innovative arts and entertainment. This will be especially true for the lower part of Valletta. A record number of activities have been planned for these areas. One such activity is a static exhibition of transport vehi- cles, which will include old Mal- tese buses restored to their former glory, classic vehicles, and more as part of ISSUQ SAL-BELT. The community element re- mains an important part of the event, with the use of spaces such as the Camarata which will host KAMRATA BURLESQUE! - the scathing satire of Ċikku l-Poplu's music along with dance interludes. The Mediterranean Conference Centre will be hosting all-night tango in MILONGA MALTIJA, and also a bizarre magic show as part of MAĠIJA INFERMERIJA. KANVAS KARNIVAL, at St Elmo Granaries, is an interactive pro- ject which will give children and families the opportunity to paint on white carnival floats, together with carnival artists while enjoy- ing the carnival atmosphere cre- ated by traditional carnival bands and dance troupes. "Lower Valletta is one of our priorities. It is a magnificent part of Valletta which can be used in many beautiful ways. Last year, the area was buzzing with activity and this year we want it to get better and better. Cultural regeneration and community projects are part of our ethos, and this area gives us these opportunities. Ultimately, lower Valletta will be extremely fun to visit and explore during the festival", said artistic director Sean Buhagiar. Notte Bianca will also maintain its more traditional events, in- cluding a number of concerts with music ranging from Baroque and Elizabethan to gospel and jazz. One such event is SUR JAZZ, which will see a traditional jazz ar- ea with a funky new set-up, where the public can enjoy the music of the Valletta Hot Club led by Pusé. ŻfinMalta will be clubbing as Pjazza San Ġorġ turns into KUNĊERTUN Rock Concert with a DJ interlude during which dancers from the national dance company will be performing to electronic music. This will happen between performances by top lo- cal bands such as The Travellers. Details for all events can be found on Notte Bianca: Valletta will be buzzing with activity like never before!
