YOU are science.
With the help of interactive and stage performances we will show you exactly what we mean!
We have three stages at Triton Fountain (S1), City Gate (S2), Castille square (S3) and we can’t wait to reveal what we have in store for the big night.
This year’s performances are all about YOU of course, and we open the events with a short play by Zebbug Primary. This incredibly innovative theatrical piece, the Stuff Superheroes are Made Of, a Kreattiv project funded by the Arts Council Malta, explains how the properties of materials can help us use various materials like glass in ways we would never imagine possible. Join our tiny actors and actresses to find out all about their little adventure.
A dance by Moveo Dance Company about neurodiversity and stopping the stigma, helps us understand the behaviour of people with neurological disorders. You live in a diverse world let’s learn how to embrace diversity. Science in the City has sponsored this performance but we need your help to raise the rest of the funds and even take it to a couple of schools.

Burps, Poo and Farts: The truth behind our digestive system in a show by Esplora. This Body Wonders science show bares it all, as they explore the science of YOU, with no holds barred! WARNING: This show will make you giggle your socks off. Get hands-on at their nearby stand, learn through play and discover what’s inside the human. Wear the body apron with all the vital organs. Take a closer look at what organs look like under a microscope and go on a virtual journey through the human body. Get the chance to interact with researchers working in the field and learn more about the ground-breaking work being carried out locally. A scream and a half!!
And if that isn’t quite enough, we have an explosive science show about Dinosaurs, Floating Objects, Explosions… in a nutshell this show by the JUST ADD SCIENCE TEAM has it all. But they need your help to pull it off. WARNING: high temperatures, naked flames and dangerous experiments will be part of this game.
