Holy Week Activities in Ghajnsielem Gozo

Għaqda Drammatika Għajnsielem was established in 1987 with the principal aim of producing quality productions and activities mainly connected with the Holy Week. 

 “Ħadd il-Passjoni” (Passion Sunday)
In collaboration with the Għajnsielem Local Council and Fort Chambray Limited, Għaqda Drammatika Għajnsielem will be presenting an activity entitled “Ħadd il-Passjoni” (Passion Sunday). This activity will consist of the Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the inauguration of the Lord’s Supper and the dramatized version of the Way of The Cross“Kont Hemm” (I Was There) which is based on St John Paul II's Scriptural Way of the Cross, first prayed by the Pope on March 29, 1991. Beginning in the Garden of Gethsemane and concluding at the tomb, each station focuses on a scriptural person who delivers a monologue challenging the audience to reflect on its part the Passion of Christ. The main characters include Jesus, the apostle John, the Centurion, Mary Magdalene as well as others. 

The Stations of the Cross will commence at Ta' Passi fields in Għajnsielem, Gozo, where the Bethlehem f`Għajnsielem activity is usually held, and will proceed through the historical site of Fort Chambray followed by the audience. These locations provide the perfect ambience for a Holy Week re-enactment. The scriptwriter JoAnne Debrincat is responsible for directing a cast of around 60 actors who will take part whilst Franco Ciangura is responsible for the artistic direction. Various people are also involved behind the scenes.
“Ħadd il-Passjoni” will be held on 29th March 2015 (Palm Sunday) at 5pm. Entrance is free. In case of bad weather, this activity will be held on 31st March 2015 at the same time and place. 
The Last Supper

Another activity which Għaqda Drammatika Għajnsielem is organizing is a live reenactment of The Lord’s Supper. This will also take place at Ta' Passi fields. The grotto area utilized during Bethlehem f`Għajnsielem, will be transformed into the room where actors will portray Jesus sharing his final meal with his Apostles before his crucifixion. There will also be a live kitchen where traditional Passover food will be prepared. This atmosphere and the natural surroundings of Ta' Passi fields including the animals, will take visitors back in time to experience The Last Supper. This activity will take place on Holy (Maundy) Thursday evening, 2nd April 2015, from 8.30pm until 11.30pm and the following morning, Good Friday, 3rd April 2014, from 9am until 12pm.

Our Lady of Sorrows Procession
Another activity that Għaqda Drammatika Għajnsielem organizes every year is the procession of Our Lady of Sorrows where around 100 personages dressed as biblical characters take part. The procession will leave the Għajnsielem Parish church at 6.00pm on 27th March 2015 and will continue throughout the various streets of our village.

Homeland exhibition by Ray Axiaq

Axiaq’s passion for art began as a boy and never left. ‘Homeland’ is an exhibition of semi-abstract paintings that convert Axiaq’s innate artistic soul with his adult experiences. In this first time Solo Exhibition Axiaq explores and physically responds to the Maltese landscape with a collection of large scale semi-abstract, vibrant canvases.

The artist draws his inspiration from the natural patterns and man-made divisions of land that form the grids that map out the way we live and work the local terrain. Axiaq uses a variety of materials within the pictorial space that are tactile and symbolic of his former career and life in construction and land development. This diversity and understanding of the land haspromoted a natural and strong affinity, which enables his artistic career to propel and flourish. It is second nature for Axiaq to combine his artistic practice with his love of these familiar materials.

Axiaq’s affinity with the land pushes his vibrant, painterly landscapes towards a unique and personal signature. The bright, colourist compositions show his natural skills and his sense of risqué and adventure.
