First public performance of wayang rakyat

Yesterday was Projek Wayang's first full performance of wayang rakyat - a shadow puppetry form based on and adapted from the Wayang Kulit Siam tradition that tells Malayan/Malaysian folk stories (such as the mischievous mousedeer, Sang Kancil, and the blundering village fool, Pak Pandir). It was performed in a mall, quite apt since a lot of Malaysians linger in these behemoths of capitalist enterprise.

From what I noticed after the 20-minute performance, people were very happy to have caught the show; it's probably something they didn't expect to happen in a mall!

Some pics to come, and hopefully by the time we re-perform this show next Sunday, we'll get someone to video it.
