Named after the wheel of fortune once used at local village fairs – Rulina is a modern, playful original composition inspired by traditional Maltese games. Upon entering, audience members are handed a ‘lottery ticket’ that invites them to take part in an interactive journey centred around the Rulina and traditional Maltese games.
The wheel of fortune determines the progress and flow of the compositions being performed and the result mirrors the playfulness that games offer. Accompanying the merriment, an introductory piece will be played by twenty-eight musicians on traditional Banda instruments. With music, dancing, games and all sorts of surprising interactions taking place all around, Rulina seeks to create an immersive, all-encompassing experience that places the audience at the heart of the performance.
