A performance where visual poetry replaces the need for words is being staged as part of ŻiguŻajg, the arts showcase for children and young people, between February 9 and 11.

Ninho (Nest) by Particulas Elementares draws its inspiration from the concise yet profound verses of Portuguese author Miguel Torga’s poem Secret. In this poetic exploration, a hidden secret within a nest unfolds a tale of true friendship and connection.

The production, aimed at children aged 5 to 7, delves into the intricacies of a simple yet captivating plot without a single word being uttered.

The stage is brought to life by Carlos Silva, the show’s author and sole performer. With unhurried grace, he weaves the story through the expressive and surprising artistry of Leonor Bandeira.

The set, adorned with minimal props, features a central character, three secondary elements, and a complementary soundtrack that guides the emotional journey.

Ninho is being staged at Studio A, Spazju Kreattiv in Valletta, on February 9 at 7pm, on the 10th at 11am and 5pm, and on the 11th at 11am and 1pm. For tickets, click here.
