In my diary...


Aldo was involved in a car accident in September 2014, which left him physically injured and in a coma for 4 months. Upon waking, he had lost most of his memories. However, with an extremely positive attitude, perseverance to heal, and acceptance of his situation, he managed to re-learn his job, pursue his passions, and improve his physical situation. 

Inwardly Silent is a multi-media immersive theatre experience of an artistic rendition of the healing process, which is going to be held in the WWII shelters at Wignacourt, Rabat, Malta It was held between the 27th-29th January 2017.
