Steve Hili’s five-star rated fringe show ‘Burn­ing Love. To the ground.’ is com­ing to Malta

Malta Independent - - STAGE -

The com­edy dubbed ‘an in­ter­ac­tive show with lasagne’ was called ‘Per­fect’, ‘hi­lar­i­ous and eye-open­ing’ by re­view web­site Arts Awards Voice and in it, the Lon­don-based Mal­tese stand-up co­me­dian takes on the no­tion of ‘love’ in his unique high-en­ergy style with a fran­tic mix of real-life ex­pe­ri­ence, naughty ob­ser­va­tions, dodgy sci­ence and his favourite food.

Steve, who has been de­scribed by world-fa­mous VICE mag­a­zine as hav­ing “The en­ergy of a dog who needs to be taken out” ex­plains - ‘Peo­ple have been ask­ing the ques­tion “what is love?” since the be­gin­ning of his­tory. So it was about time some­one cracked it. Hu­man­ity can thank me later’.

Lasagne plays a big role in the show - in fact, au­di­ence mem­bers are of­fered some at the end, but that is not all. One of the most fa­mous mod­els of all time also takes part. Kind of.

Burn­ing Love. To the ground. is be­ing pro­duced by TAC The­atre, hot on the tail of their crit­i­cally-ac­claimed sum­mer rock mu­si­cal Rock of Ages. Pro­ducer Wes­ley El­lul said “pro­duc­ing Steve’s hi­lar­i­ous and in­sight­ful one-man show was an ab­so­lute no-brainer. I‘m ab­so­lutely sure Burn­ing love. To the ground. will be a will be a hit with lo­cal au­di­ences, not only be­cause it will cause LOLs, ROFLs and PMLs, but also it will leave them ask­ing the ques­tion Had­daway asked in the 90s: “what is love?”

Burn­ing Love. To the ground. will be per­formed at Palazzo Per­erria, Val­letta, be­tween the 3rd and 6th Novem­ber. Tick­ets, start­ing from only €10, are avail­able fromwww.tick­et­line.com.mt or from The Em­bassy Cin­ema Box of­fice in Val­letta.
