Ladies Of The Red Chamber

Inspired by the famous Chinese classical novel, Dream of the Red Chamber, The Actors Studio will be presenting Ladies of the Red Chamber, a full-length Chinese dance performance choreaographer by Malaysian choreographer Jack Kek and Hong Kong choreographer Chris Lam. A highlight of this project, the Chinese classical dance is used as a medium to illustrate the complex protrait of the female characters in the novel. Ricco Chinese Chamber Ochestra, an emerging local Chinese music ochestra will join Lee Khun Chap, a famous Guzheng artist from Hong Kong as the show's live music artists.

Tragedi Hamlet

Retelling one of Shakespeare's most popular work, Datuk Faridah Merican will be directing a Ahmad Yatim adaptation of Hamlet aptly named Tragedi Hamlet. The gripping story of a prince consumed by anger over his father's murder will be told entirely in the Malay language which offers a very interesting and refreshing taste to the play. Don't worry if you're not familiar with the language, English surtitles will be provided throughout the show. 

Titus Andronicus

We're on a Shakespeare binge this weekend as theathrethreesixty and KL Shakespeare Players presents another work of the famed English playwright, Titus Andronicus. Directed by Christopher Ling, the tale is dubbed Shakespeare's bloodiest and most violent work and will definitely thrill audiences with its solid performance and visual feast. Find out more here
