SD: Romeo & Juliet 
presented by KL SHAKESPEARE PLAYERS

Keeping to the SD format--performance of key scenes using Shakespeare's text, weaved together by narration in contemporary English--the shows make Shakespeare accessible, exciting and relevant, without dumbing down, to audience of different levels. 

"SD: Romeo & Juliet" is about two young star-crossed lovers and their tragic end. Trapped by the feud between their families--the Montagues and the Capulets--their lives seem to tumble into an inevitable and ill-fated tragedy. The apparent “good” coming out of that “misadventured” is that they “bury their parents’ strife”. 

SD shows are very popular among teachers, professors and students from secondary schools, colleges and universities, as these productions unveil the mystique of Shakespeare. Even working adults and parents have uttered, “SD shows have rekindled our interest in Shakespeare!” 

In 2017, with its Macbeth KLSP performed a total of 40 shows in 7 states, 15 venues to over 6,000 pairs of eyes. While this year with Romeo & Juliet the company has traveled to Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, with close to 30 shows by September. 

SD's work is further validated by international Shakespeare scholars and theatre practitioners, when it performed at the 3rd Biennial Conference of Asian Shakespeare Association in Manila in May 2018.

TRAVEL WITH MUM
presented by The Nonsensemaker
produced by DPAC

 “Travel with Mum” is presented by The Nonsensemakers from Hong Kong and is one of the highlights for the 2016 DPAC Festival. Two years ago, it received high praise, plus private letters from audiences asking about the drama. This year, DPAC is proud to restage this passionate theatrical performance, "Travel with Mum."

“Travel with Mum” is beautifully told through a masked theatre play on the virtues of filial piety accompanied by folksy live music and inspired by the touching story of Wang Yi-Min who spent all his life with his mother in a village in Liaoning, China. The 74-year-old man takes his 99-year-old mother on a journey across China. Starting in Heilongjiang, they set off for Tibet on a 900-day journey that spans over 30, 000 kilometres.

His mother, who had toiled her entire life for her family, has never travelled out of her rural hometown. The man is determined to fulfil his mum’s wish to see the beauty of the world while she still can. Together, they travel on a rickety tricycle, pedalling through rural villages and fast-paced cities, valleys and over hills. As they ride on, he discovers that staying by his mum’s side is the greatest reward he can give to both of them.

I AM DEMON | VARNAM - EDIT
Project curated by Akane Nakamura, Helly Minarti, Lim How Ngean

1. “I Am A Demon” 

Presented by: PICHET KLUNCHUN (Bangkok, Thailand)

 

Critically-acclaimed Pichet Klunchun contemporises his traditional training in Thai Khon performance in this deconstructed piece, “I Am A Demon”. It is a strong personal testimonial that expresses the tensions of traditional and contemporary body aesthetics while paying tribute to his traditional master, art form, and training. ."I Am Demon" presents an individual's fierce passion for his art, which also reveals the fragile human condition. It is rigorous and virtuosic as well as it is tender and lyrical.

 

Created in 2005 to commemorate the 3-year death anniversary of his beloved master, “I Am Demon” tells the story of passing down the art form from one generation to the next, as well as a relationship between master and student.

 

2. Varnam - Edit”

Presented by: PADMINI CHETTUR (Chennai, India), BHEDA ADITI SHARAD

 

Padmini Chettur has always incorporated her traditional training in Bharatnataym into her contemporary choreography. Her systematic deconstruction of the Bharatanatyam vocabulary, rhythm, and philosophy will resonate with Malaysian dancers and choreographers as another method to contemporize the Indian form. In “Varma II”, Chettur reworks an older work of hers with new musician collaborations and new choreographies.

 

The ‘Varnam’ in the traditional dance repertoire of Bharatanatyam occupies the central position of any performance. The opening lines of the Mohanaama Varnam drag us immediately and relentlessly into the heroine’s complex world through classical Indian dance. A story of lost love, abandonment and, pining, it is also, in its original interpretation, a glorified description of god’s divine love and lovemaking. In this work, which re-engages this iconic material and music, the dancers – some classically trained, others not – begin to unravel the meaning of the text, to re-physicalize the known language. Into the grid of the Varnam they invite references of contemporary text and their own personal voices of womanhood, body, and sexuality.

iProject:Between Self & Others
presented by ASK Dance Company

When was the last time your conscience spoke to you? Have you changed? Everything we do is a reflection of our choices; or are we simply doing what is expected of us? Even our choices are often influenced by others. How then do we define what is truly from our selves? An observation of the connections and reconnections between our thoughts and actions; and how we affect each other, unconsciously or with intention to manipulate.

This production is a full-length contemporary dance performance performed by ASK Dance Company.
