With theatres and performing arts venues shut under the new lockdown, the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) will be streaming nine shows on streaming platform CloudTheatre, starting this weekend under its "Watch From Home" or WFH@klpac series.
KLPac is releasing its in-house series Short + Sweet Dance 2020 and Short + Sweet Theatre 2020 on June 5 and 6 at 8.30pm.
Short + Sweet Dance, featuring five pieces, includes an exploration of Balinese dance and a series of contemporary works.
Short + Sweet Theatre features four playlets, namely Five Questions, Searching For Elephants, My Appa Died Again, and #METOOLAH, a take on the MeToo movement.
You heard right: one ticket will enable you to enjoy nine different works by nine different groups in a one night.
If you missed Datuk Faridah Merican’s feelgood Bollywood Dreams production in March, get ready to catch this tale of two brothers (from Kedah) looking for the "big city, bright lights" life from June 11-13.
On June 18-20, you can tune in to Yesterday Once More 3, an evergreen music concert to get you in a karaoke mood. If you want a bit of a spook fest, then Don’t Let Hantu Know (presented in English, Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin and Cantonese) will be creeping up your alley from June 25-27.
Ticket sales from the online screenings will go towards keeping KLPac and The Actors Studio afloat during this lockdown. To date, KLPac had to cancel three shows and postpone two shows in May and June due to the lockdown.
