What happens when you take a classic written by one of the greatest English playwrights ever and re-tell it through one of the oldest traditional art forms from Malaysia?
After eight long years, The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat will be bringing back the magical Mak Yong Titis Sakti, a Mak Yong performance based on the story of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream under the direction of visionary director Norziziz Zulkifli.
With its mystical setting in an enchanted forest, Mak Yong Titis Sakti’s story on the three types of love – the perfect love, the foribidden love and the unrequited love – is an appealing one. Add to singing, dancing and an element of comedy, it is an entertaining watch even for those who are not familiar with Mak Yong.
