CEMPAKA International School, under the auspices of the embassy of the Czech Republic, will be bringing in the Black Light Theatre Metro from the Czech Republic to perform for the first time in Malaysia.
Black Light Theatre is a unique form of theatre that is both technically imaginative and highly entertaining. It is popular in central Europe, and is found in the major theatre capitals of the world.
It is actually theatre illusion where actors dressed in black move against a black background and are invisible to the human eye. Only the fluorescent objects or ‘characters’ they manipulate are visible.
Creatively choreographed, entire scenes come to life as characters, objects and symbols move magically to music, titillating the audience with a story laced with hidden meaning, wisdom and humour.
The performance, entitled Miss Sony, depicts the power of television over mankind.
What is it like to be in a lovers' triangle? And what if one side of the triangle is a TV set?
Intriguing? Then come and join our hero to see just where a passion for the black and in-some-parts-glowing screen can lead you.
The Czech Republic's Black Light Theatre will make its debut in Malaysia at Cempaka International School, Kuala Lumpur, and will finish off its performances in Kuching, Sarawak.
Public performances at Cempaka International School will be held in the North Hall, Cheras, on July 3 at 7pm; July 4 at 10am, 3pm and 8pm; and July 6 at 10am and 1pm.
All invitations are by minimum donations of RM30 which will go towards funding 1000 under-privileged children to see the performance.
