The Running Puppeteers

We've recently completed Mark Teh's Dua, Tiga Dalang Berlari (Five Arts Centre), a documentary theatre performance that presents the lives of Malaysia's two most important dalangs (shadow puppeteers) - Pak Hamzah Awang Amat and Pak Dollah Baju Merah (or Abdullah bin Ibrahim) - alongside cheeky takes on the Betara Kala story from the wayang kulit Siam performance repertoire. It was toured in several colleges and universities within the Klang Valley as well as a 3-night public performance at The Annexe @ Central Market.

While not directly a Projek Wayang endeavor, this project marked the successful collaboration among KL art practitioners from various fields in an attempt to engage with the wayang kulit Siam tradition. More will surely come out of this!

While waiting for reviews, we serve you an array of wonderful photographs of the production when it was performed at Taylors University College, Subang Jaya, taken by Myra Mahyuddin.
