Mixtape For Maz, a play written in English and Northern Malay, tells the story of Maz and Edi, teenage siblings who have returned to rural North Malaysia in the late nineties after years of growing up abroad. Not only do they face the stresses of secondary school life, they must also navigate the contradictions between their western influences (early Internet culture, nineties music and video games) and the conservative society engulfing them. As their identities are challenged and redefined, will they learn to reconcile the shattered fragments of themselves or will they succumb to the temptations of conformity?
The show venue will take place at KongsiKL situated at Jalan Klang Lama, KL.
*Mixtape For Maz is staged with support from the Hai-O Arts and Culture Grant, the Boh Cameronian Grant For New Productions, and Kakiseni.
They say true feelings are earned, not given. A young man, trapped in a bizarre new world, experiences a journey of such. Unbeknownst of what he seeks, he treads the path in search of any answers to his predicament. But could these answers make things right for him? Will the truth set him free?
TUTAS’ Bachelor of Performing Arts is proud to present a reimagining of Romeo and Juliet, now with a modern Malaysian twist. Written and directed entirely by our fourth batch of students, this play revisits the classic Shakespearean tale to explore what it means to love, to be loved, and all the little moments in between that make love worthwhile.
This show is supported by and will take place at The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac), The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat and Taylor’s University.
