Bangsawan Workshop for Higher Malay Students, Northern Cluster, resumes.
After taking a break during the December school holidays we resume our bangsawan workshop.
In November 2016, the students were exposed to the basics of bangsawan where they were introduced to its characteristics and characters. They were also taught the basics of performing for theatre such as vocal trainings, stage dynamics, tableaux, stage blockings, stage balance and levels and also the art form of silat.
We then took a short break during the December holidays and now we proceed on in preparing for their short performance.
This year, the Northern Cluster of Higher Malay students, hosted by Anderson Secondary School will be presenting “Syair Siti Zubaidah: Perang Cina”
Today, they were given roles and did blockings for the whole 15 minutes piece. The students are very active and excited but also very disciplined. Will be looking forward for the next session where we will polish up on the acting and also choreographing their silat and malay dance items.
Web logs of art activities on a regular basis (hope).
