Zombies. They were a hit in our media, especially the last decade. From Resident Evil to The Walking Dead, it was once a must have character in every fantasy media. Even our very own Mamat Khalid had a pick on it with his 2007 Zombi Kampung Pisang. This time around, theatre otai Khairunazwan Rodzy himself has put up a full length theatre play on zombies. Could it be a tribute to the late Dolores O’ Riordan? Who knows. But what we know for sure is that it is a fun way to showcase the work of his theatre workshop’s students.
When I heard that Ian Nathaniel’s I’M ENTERTAINMENT was doing an exhibit style production on mental health, I thought, “That sounds like a Duality ripoff.” Not that I didn’t like Duality – it had an interesting take on sexuality with a rather interesting concept, and I’m all for more newer forms of theatre- it’s just that i just did not trust this production to be able to pull it off well by giving justice to the content it was presenting.
And I was right!
