ŻiguŻajg Festival 2022 is Back With Performances for Children and Young People – From November 18 to 27, the ŻiguŻajg Arts Festival for Children and Young People will be back. The entire family can take in its jam-packed schedule of live performances and content featuring art, dance, and theater. International as well as local artists and creatives have teamed up to put on the festival. The festival has put together a hybrid program of activities that may be viewed and enjoyed both live and digitally.
Owen Bonnici, minister of national heritage, the arts, and local government, emphasized the value of such a festival in allowing children and younger people to speak up and share their ideas. He stated that this festival will teach them “how to communicate in several special ways through the art of dance, drama, and music. For children and young people to develop, create, think, and play, they require imagination. Theatre is the best platform to precisely do this and discover the limitless potential of their imaginations and abilities.”
This is why the digital school program was enhanced even further as it “has proven to be increasingly convenient for numerous schools and students to connect and join in the fun without having to pay any additional charges.” Fondazzjoni Kreattività chairman Rupert Cefai also agreed, saying that “the festival has served both as a great source of entertainment but most importantly, as a source of enlightenment to audiences of various ages.”
As a result, more children are becoming involved in the arts and reaping its benefits in everyday life. Festival director Marta Vella said that “for the first time since my appointment back in 2020, we are able to present the festival we have been dreaming of. I couldn’t be prouder to present this year’s programme built around what ŻiguŻajg is known for; artistic excellence, imagination, and creativity.”
The fact that this year’s festival will feature two unique musicals as well as new Maltese writing ensures its success. In addition, she stated that “for the first time ever, ŻiguŻajg is curating the shows at the Malta Book Festival, happening at MFCC Ta’ Qali between November 23 and 27” as part of her ongoing efforts to enhance this festival.
