BREAKING NEWS: Concrete trees and bats convene in front of Castille to ponder on the great strides science can make in safeguarding our environment.
Green House Malta are back with the all new production, Hanging On. This performance will follow a colony of bats living on the island of Malta who band together on a perilous and very secret mission.
For this immersive journey to have a happy ending, our bats will be asking for your help. So buckle up, YOU may get the chance to dress up as a bat and join the band, help a hungry pup find food, and more!
In an absolute first for Science and the City, we’ll be combining a play of shadows, acoustics and musical narration to shed light on the life, the struggles and the peculiar, stranger-than-fiction characteristics shared by these fluffy, almost blind and highly misunderstood creatures which flit through our skies at dusk.
How are they hanging on? Get to know more about what sort of things they get up to when the sun sets. Green House is an NGO specialising in data collection driven by Citizen Science. They need you to help with gathering more data about our local Maltese wildlife, bees, bats, plants, you name it we care about it! Fighting for the conservation and protection of local habitats requires research we can only curate with the help of volunteers – that’s YOU!
