李尔亡 Lear Is Dead
Lear is dead, the entire country mourns. The Fools Society presents Lear Is Dead — a performance that tells the story of Lear:The ageing Lear had given his land to his two elder daughters, and disowned the truthful youngest daughter. The retired Lear insisted on retaining a portion of his power. However, his two newly empowered daughters began to find their increasingly senile father intolerable. Finally, Lear was driven out of the house and into the night storm, to wander like a madman on a heath.When power is gained, wisdom is lost. When history is learnt, the present becomes clear. Why should the jesters replay their national memory, and how will the citizens move on without Lear?Based on Shakespeare’s King Lear, Nine Years Theatre presents a re-imagined reality through the play-within-a-play, Lear Is Dead.To know more about the production, please visit http://www.nineyearstheatre.com/current_en.html
Tiger of Malaya
Written by: Alfian Sa'atDirected by: Mohd Fared JainalDramaturgy by: Shawn ChuaPerformed by: Farez Najid, Siti Khalijah Zainal, Rei Poh, Rei Kitagawa, Yuya TanakaIn 1943, the Japanese film 'The Tiger of Malaya' was released. Based on the life story of Tani Yutaka, a Japanese man who lived on the east coast of Malaya, the film portrayed him as a patriotic agent who liberated the Malay natives from British imperialists and Chinese capitalists.Now, more than 70 years later, a group of actors are going to reenact scenes from the film. Real Malay actors will replace the 'brown face' Japanese actors in the original. Chinese actors will play antagonists who are 'less evil'. A Japanese actor will try to find a space of performance between the wartime propaganda classifications of heroes, villains and victims.As they comically attempt to 'correct' history, they discover how their identities are sustained not by the accuracies of history but the stubbornness of myths.

THE REUNIFICATION OF THE TWO KOREAS...
The Reunification Of The Two Koreas by Joël Pommerat is a patchwork of twenty short scenes revolving around an unuttered question: what are human relationships made of?A woman wants a divorce because there was never any love between her and her husband, on her wedding day a bride discovers her fiancé had an affair with each of her four sisters, a mother is stunned when she learns her husband is happy with their son joining the army and risking his life at war, two best friends get into a savage fight because one of them recalls their first encounter, a prostitute bargains down her services to hook a client- What are those bonds that lead us to love, hate, help, betray, care, flee, fight, abuse or lie? Each scene explores situations where a relationship is challenged, drawing us into a maze where appeased relations between humans seem as primal, desirable and quixotic as the reunification of the two Koreas.The Reunification Of The Two Koreas is a co-production between TheatreWorks and Centre Dramatique National de Tours (CDNT). It is directed by Jacques Vincey, Artistic Director of CDNT, translated into English by Marc Goldberg, and performed by Cynthia Lee Macquarrie, Ebi Shankara, Karen Tan, Janice Koh, Pavan J Singh, Tan Shou Chen, Timothy Nga, Umi Kalthum Ismail and Zelda Tatiana Ng.---TheatreWorks presents its 2018 Season, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, with two plays – 13.13.13 by Shen Tan and The Reunification Of The Two Koreas by Joël Pommerat.

Esplanade Presents | Pentas Cerita ...
Being in control is very much like cooking. One needs to be meticulous at every step, be mindful of one’s actions and not let things stew too long. It’s like making Asam Pedas (spicy tamarind fish), for example, a beloved Malay dish known for its tart, sour and spicy profiles, that is quick to cook but always on the brink of burning. For Roslan, whose dispassionate wife’s routine includes cooking Asam Pedas for him and their two children, food is one of the few things that add colour to his life. Like the dish, his temper tends to rise and hit boiling point, all too quickly sometimes. Gentle and affectionate one moment, he singes and sears the next. At home, there is unspoken love, and there are painful scars. There are responsibilities, and there is the ideal of what a home should be. How will the cycles of joy and sadness, resentment and resignation be broken when they are always teetering on the brink and on rinse and repeat? What are his limits of control?First staged in 1995, Cerita Cinta marks playwright and director Noor Effendy Ibrahim’s return to Malay theatre since Bilik Ahmad Berdaki (2009). Presenting an unabashed view of the threads that bind a family, it examines the dysfunctionality of an atypical Malay household.Advisory: This performance contains mature themes and violence. The admission age is 16 years old and above.

Kalaa Utsavam - Indian Festival of ...
Parasurama, the valiant warrior sage, is the sixth avatar or manifestation of Lord Vishnu. He lived through the lives of the avatars Rama, Balarama, Krishna, and Kalki, the last of whom he was destined to mentor. He was also teacher to Bhishma, Drona and Karna, who were the greatest champions of the famous epic, Mahabharatha. Parasurama was a man of principles who stood by his beliefs despite facing some of the toughest decisions any mortal could make. He was also the fiercest among the human avatars. Parasu: The Story of an Ultimate Warrior follows some of Parasurama’s trials and tribulations, exploring his struggle of having to choose between duty and righteousness and the limits of the anger that had built up inside him over centuries.

SOUVENIR The true story of the oper...
Souvenir takes us back to 1964 where pianist Cosmé McMoon recounts the real-life musical career of one of History’s most unforgettable Opera Stars, Florence Foster Jenkins. She was an outlandish and wealthy socialite who believed in in the importance of sharing her “enchanting voice” with the world. Unfortunately, the ugly truth is Jenkins couldn’t sing! This did not stop her and the unlikely duo went on to hold sensational recitals even producing a sold-out performance at Carnegie Hall!This play with music by English author, Stephen Temperley, was performed on Broadway in 2005-2006 before becoming one of the most-performed shows in the United States. Souvenir was especially popular in Europe where it was performed at prestigious theatre festivals such as "Coup de Coeur", the Avignon Festival Off 2012, at the Théâtre du Ranelagh.Souvenir will make you laugh till you cry!

What is extraordinary about SOUVENIR is that Temperley has made Jenkins, for all her foolishness, a remarkably sympathetic woman..." - NY Daily News.
Waiting for Godot
A tragicomedy in two parts, Waiting For Godot follows two days in the lives of wandering vagabonds Vladimir and his friend Estragon on a barren country road as they wait expectantly by a lone tree in hope for salvation from a man called Godot. A man they hope will give them answers to their undefined questions. While waiting, they fool around, entertaining one another with feisty debate and comedic Vaudevillian tricks.Instead of Godot they meet two eccentric travellers, the overbearing landowner Pozzo, and his tormented servant Lucky and a young boy who advises them that ‘Mr Godot won’t come here today but he’ll surely arrive tomorrow’. When tomorrow comes, still determining to leave, the pair remain and wait, they wait for Godot.Few plays have attracted so much interpretation. Much attention has been centred on the character of the cryptic Godot. But perhaps the real subject of this extraordinary text is not Godot, but waiting.This production from Ireland’s AC Productions has thrilled and entertained audiences since 2005.
