KL Shakespeare Players is excited to return on stage this 11 and 12 June 2022 at the Damansara Performing Arts Centre with a revision of the sold-out Old Lear.
First performed in 2019, as part of the 12th KL Butoh Festival’s “Shakespeare Meets Butoh” series, Old Lear, has, with a slightly changed cast, been revisited, reimagined, and reworked.
This production intimately explores and reimagines the characters and themes in Shakespeare’s King Lear. The reworked production will now also be in Malay, Mandarin and Cantonese, as well as in English. Later in June, KLSP will be taking this new, reworked production to Milan, Italy to participate in an international theatre competition organized by Spazio Teatro No’hma, the city of Milan, the President of the Italian Republic, and the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
This is the second time KLSP has been invited to this competition. The first time was in 2020, in an online version of the competition due to lockdowns. KLSP participated in a recording of A Tale of Star-Crossed Lovers, based on Romeo and Juliet and Rama and Shita, and was awarded Special Mention by the jury of international judges.
