As I entered the auditorium at Wisma MCA, Officers 1, 2, 3 and 4 were standing together on the steps of the seated hall. They were standing far from the ‘stage’ or the front of the auditorium where you would usually expect the cast of a performance to be situated.
WHAT haven’t we told you about Anomalist Production? Here’s a quick recap: a group of Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) students got together to do theatre last year and have since grown into the next big thing in Kuala Lumpur’s performing arts scene. And after the success of stagings like Skrip Untuk Ali, Bangsa, Home and Hotel, the group is back with an anthology of short plays titled Projek K³.
After pulling off two theatre performances in 2015, Anomalist Production is set on making their storytelling even more relevant this year.
In a play speckled with such colourful terms as janji Melayu and Cina bangsat, Anomalist Production didn’t so much offend as intrigue with BANGSA: Anak Kecil Main Api last weekend at Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC).
