Impossible Love
presented by TheatreFugee and Parastoo Theatre 

Impossible Love is a double billed performance of two plays written, directed, and acted by refugee artists in Malaysia, each exploring the impact of war on love and family. Romeo and Juliet 2000+ by TheatreFugee, directed by Omar Alkhammash, a 19-year old artist from Syria, and Saleh Sepas, a professional theatre director from Kabul, is a retelling of the William Shakespeare play, only this time set in Colombo during the Sri Lankan civil war, with the feuding Montagues and Capulets reimagined as Sinhala and Tamil Tiger families. 

The actors comprise of refugees from different parts of the world, including Syria, Libya, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Screaming in Silence is an original play written and directed by Saleh Sepas, founder of the Afghan refugee Parastoo Theatre. Set in Afghanistan, the play tells the tragic story of Nazanin, a 12-year old girl forced into marriage with a much older man when her father loses to him at gambling. Eventually, Nazanin runs away, only to find that even the institutions responsible for enforcing the law fail to protect her rights. The plays address the realities of societies both hardened and eroded by conflict. 

In Romeo and Juliet 2000+, those who try to break away from cycles of hostilities of war and choose the path of love and peacemaking must confront their own families and face exile or death. In Screaming in Silence, families entrenched in the misery of war, poverty, parochialism of rural Afghanistan condone the forced marriage of a young girl, with little regard for the multiple forms of violence and vulnerability that she becomes exposed and subjected to as a result. Such situations are all too real for girls in many parts of the world. According to the United Nations, rates of child marriage increase in times of crisis, when marriage can seem to offer ņ protectionŇ , ņ honourŇ and security, even while it often severely compromises girlsŇ development, interrupting their education, leading to early pregnancy, social isolation and domestic violence.

The performance is a collaborative artistic effort between TheatreFugee and Parastoo Theatre, with management and production support from humanitarian organisation Geutanyoe Foundation. The effort was funded through a seed grant from UNHCR Malaysia to TheatreFugee as well as public donations for Parastoo Theatre channeled through Geutanyoe Foundation. Proceeds from the performances will go towards programmes to support Rohingya women and girls' education by Geutanyoe Malaysia as well as a collaborative arts programme between refugee and Malaysian youth, led by TheatreFugee. We welcome individuals, organisations, and companies who wish to sponsor tickets for Malaysian underprivileged youth and refugee youth to attend the performance of any night. 

For more information about the show and on how to sponsor tickets, please get in touch with: Lilianne Fan, Co-Founder and International Director, Geutanyoe Foundation geutanyoe.my@gmail.com or Omar Alkhammash, Director, TheatreFugee omar.geutanyoe@gmail.com

Nusantara prog-rock outfit Pitahati is making its first performance in Damansara Performing Arts Centre. Formed in 2011, the five-piece lads from Selangor defines their music as an expression of psychedelic and Malay avant-garde rock movement, with nusantara (the Archipelago) roots in its rhythms and music. Pitahati’s debut album, Fonetik Anak Candal, was nominated Best Album of 2014 in Kosmo Malaysia's Critics Choice. Their second album Selamat Datang Ke Panggung Suara which is music for the film, Terbaik Dari Langit was nominated at the 26th Malaysian Film Festival Awards and A.I.M 2016 (short for Anugerah Industri Muzik Malaysia). 

Their poetic lyrics fused with haunting melodies have ignited a rock revolution in the Malaysian music scene. Known for their charismatic and energetic stage presence with their unique nusantara signature to their music is not to be missed. Experience ‘Panggung Suara’ (translated as Theater of Sounds) this February as Pitahati offers fans the chance to hear, see and feel their music live in a visually theatrical and intimate setting as they set to storm DPAC.

Continue One - TONGUE  活壹 - 三舌
presented by Liew\Viehstädt

Continue is a dance trilogy made up of Tongue,Triangle and Touch, which deals with continuous patterns in nature and human behaviour.The first piece unfolds with three dancers endlessly turning around themselves, encircling their thoughts and how to communicate with the outside world. But their words get stuck in the mouth, questions are lingering on the lips and emotions hover over the tongue. It is this very familiar, yet helplessly private situation that makes them move. With a huge appetite for words, they arm themselves with movement against the dark spells of modern life with all its promising freedom and hidden taboos.And they go on, go on and on and on and on... 

 活,即不死。舞蹈三部曲《活》,由《三舌》、《三角》及《三色》概念创作组成。第一部《三舌》由三位男舞者呈现。在这么开放的年代里“活”着,很多的发言却似乎都困在口里,疑问都卡在唇齿间,产生出的情绪也都盘旋在舌头上。时间久了,那些滋味是否合胃口也不再重要了。不管能不能在《三舌》里活着,但至少可以打着赤膊往这现今人类与传统规则的矛盾游去。。。。。。

A Tale That Must Be Told: MACBETH
presented by KL SHAKESPEARE PLAYERS

Continuing with its success, as the only theatre company that annually brings Shakespeare to Kuala Lumpur and other major towns in the country, the KL Shakespeare Players (KLSP) now offers a family-friendly Shakespeare production, ‘A Tale that Must be Told: Macbeth’.


Working with a UK-based children’s theatre consultant--Johnny Gillett--KLSP’s Artistic Director Lim Kien Lee developed a storytelling format which is targeted at children 7 - 12 year-olds. It incorporates colourful costumes, playthings, soundscapes and activities that children are familiar with.


‘A Tale that Must be Told: Macbeth’ is delivered in contemporary English and with some key phrases found in the Shakespeare play. This approach allows a young audience to follow the the story and themes, and to be familiar with famous lines like, “Fair is foul, and foul is fair” or “Double, double, toil and trouble.”


Three performers lead the young audience into chants (and battle cries) and invite audience-participation, like the battle between the royal forces and the rebels, a banquet, the seduction of the witches and a dance. It is definitely not a sit-down-and-quietly-watch kind of performance.


Premiering in September 2017 at the Kuala Lumpur International Arts Festival 2017, the show received very positive feedback from students, teachers and parents, prompting this additional run.  Many commented on the fun and exciting way Shakespeare’s story was brought to life for young audiences, without dumbing down.


A Parent wrote: “Immersive. Engaging. Inspiring. My son and I enjoyed interacting and participating along in the play with actions, dance, chants and making sound effects at yesterday's Macbeth play
