Jemputan Khas - "Jangan Sakitiku Lagi, tolonglah "- Teater Abstrak

The abstract theatre
Event : Festival Kesenian Kanak-Kanak & Remaja, Pulau Pinang 2008
Venue : Auditorium P.Ramlee, Penang, Malaysia
Time : Event begins at 2:00PM onwards
Date : 14th August 2008

"The problem facing abstract theatre, then, is that you can't just have actors declaim nonsense and manipulate styrofoam because (a) this is obviously not real-world behavior and (b) there is no apparent way to otherwise decode such random behavior on the fly. Absent a long tradition of styrofoam manipulation, this sort of thing can never be theatrical. It may (or, in this case, may not) be possible to read this sort of thing as dance, but it can never become behavior which, I am arguing, is the fundamental constituent unit of theatre. From which it follows that abstract theatre can only be rendered from abstract (or, to be more accurate, non-representational yet seemingly "meaningful") behavior."

Abstract theatre based on improvising (like in the movie “She’s All That”). Everything in the abstract theatre is metaphorical and usually undefined, left for interpretation by the audience. Everyone has their own view of what a production or improvisation actually meant. Abstract theatre is always on the edge. It can push boundaries, experiment with the extreme, find new ways of doing things, evoke strange and different reactions.

I think it is an abstract performance that consists of a series of different phases where the movement artists respond to the music, the musicians respond to the visuals and the visuals respond to it all to meld the performance into a whole. Everyone involved will be improvising and interacting with one another like a conversation but there’ll be no dialogue.Is that correct?

Nice play, good effort.

Since PFS already successfully made a full scale production last year.

You guys should go for a full scale production too.

Show it to the world!
