Last month, we went to watch a student production at Universiti Malaya. We don’t do this often, but this one had several great things going for it.
“Did oregano kill your hamster?” asks Janet, one of two protagonists in Calvin Wong‘s The Taste of Water.
It was a humorous, sarcastic line that looked great on paper, but failed to translate to the stage in this particular instance. Moments like this riddled the production, begging the question: is there something off with The Taste of Water?
With a visually compelling but not well-used set, Fifteen arrives as SIFU Production’s “first full length production,” though it’s difficult to know how it differs from earlier ones.
