PENTAS Project will be restaging The Lost and the Ecliptic, its award-winning production that premiered in 2007 at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac). The Lost and the Ecliptic explores urban life in KL through space installation, lighting, music, text, dance, theatre and multimedia.
Performances run from Thursday, 22 April 2010 to Saturday, 24 April at 8:30pm, and Sunday, 25 April at 3pm at KLPac. The production will also be staged in Singapore on 7 and 8 May, at 8pm at the Esplanade Theatre Studio.
The Lost and the Ecliptic was the result of collaboration among performers Shanthini Venugopal and Amelia Tan; the late space designer Caecar Chong; composer Ng Chor Guan; visual artist Au Sow Yee; writer Tan Yan Tee; and dancer Steve Goh. Having lived in KL, in other parts of Malaysia and abroad, these artists incorporated their own worldviews in creating 10 scenes, or “memorandums”, on KL life. Dancer and choreographer Ming Low replaces Goh in this 2010 staging.
The Lost and the Ecliptic is directed by Loh Kok Man, who won the award for Best Director in the 6th Annual Boh Cameronian Arts Awards for the 2007 production. The production was also nominated for Best Set Design and Best Lighting Design that year.
