The performance will revolve around a murder which happened in a Valletta convent in 1738 and the details of which were recorded in a short ballad written at the time. No solution was offered in the ballad. Through the participation of live actors and folk singers (gÄ§annejja) and musicians we will try to set the scene of the crime. While in our performance we shall be trying to be as historically correct as possible, the fundamental question that we shall also be asking is: what would have happened if the murder had been committed nowadays? What tools that were not available at the time would be used by investigators and forensic scientist to solve the case? The questions will be answered by investigators from the Malta Police Force and forensic scientists from the University of Malta, who will bring over many of their instruments to give a demonstration of how a scene of the crime investigation is conducted, as well as what tests would eventually be made on the evidence collected from the scene of the crime. This will be a unique experience to witness first-hand how police investigation and forensic science work are carried out which would help to keep the crime rate down.
Event organised by Marlene Mifsud Chircop together with Dr Marco Galea from the University Theatre Studies, with investigators from the Malta Police Force and forensic scientists from the University of Malta
