The Cement Truck Procession
Cement-Truck-procession, 4.11.18, 5pm
Artist Margerita Pulé’s Cement Truck Procession-event will continue with the Cement-Bakery during the Mahalla Festival.
Our lives are run by growl of the cement mixer. The builder’s truck welcomes in our mornings, and the chaser accompanies our lunch. Our days are counted by the digger and the crane. Construction vehicles are integral to our everyday lives; and now they would like acknowledgement of this fact. In this procession, artist Margerita Pulè acknowledges the authority of the Cement Mixer, and will lead it in a slow walk through along Tower Road in Sliema; a town that has long bent its knee to these construction vehicles.
The procession will begin at the Piazetta where Tower Road meets Qui Si Sana, walk along Tower Road, and up Dingli St. As the procession makes its way along the narrow streets, the audience will receive small cakes and bread made of cement.
At the end of the procession, the Cement Truck will leave, and the small company will carry along Howard St to the small garden to the side of the Teatru Salesjan. Some cement will be poured, and the procession’s bandalora will be placed in the garden.
