Kan­dang

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Tos Arts & Culture - Com­piled by Ei­jas Arif­fin

‘Kan­dang’ is the Malay adap­ta­tion of Ge­orge Or­well’s sem­i­nal book ‘An­i­mal Farm’. Adapted and trans­lated by di­rec­tor Omar Ali and his fa­ther, the play fol­lows a group of an­i­mals that man­aged to oust their ir­re­spon­si­ble farmer only to find their hopes of a new life dashed when a new au­thor­i­tar­ian regime of an­i­mals is es­tab­lished. While Or­well’s book was an al­le­gor­i­cal tale of what took place dur­ing the Russian Revo­lu­tion lead­ing up to Stalin’s reign, this adap­ta­tion will be con­tex­tu­alised within our cur­rent political cli­mate in Malaysia. Don’t worry, no ac­tual an­i­mals are in­volved in the play.

àPen­tas 2, kl­pac, Jalan Stra­chan, KL (03 4047 9000/kl­pac.org). Aug 10-12, 8.30pm; Aug 13, 3pm. RM55.
