“Home” at DPac. What if you are a great debater and high-achieving law student with a bright future ahead of him, but your love of home holds you back from broadening your horizons abroad? This is the burning question that ‘Syafiq’, a promising student will have to answer in Teater Home, a show by Anomalist Production. Follow his story at Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) happening this weekend from March 18-20.
