Updated @ 10.5.2018 9am

So many matters happened since 6 May when SiennyLovesDrawing has rushed back from her working tripsss to attend 2 friends’ wedding ceremonies supposedly (meant to be a surprise to both of her friends). However, early morning of 6 May, received a phone call that her big uncle (mama’s family) has passed away

Sigh…Whole family members then rushed to Pahang to be with the big uncle’s family, helped for the wake preparation & attendance till 8 May. She really missed this big uncle so much as since young, he always bought him books & stationeries whenever he came to KL to visiting her family back then.

May you rest in peace, “dua gu” (big uncle in Hokkien dialect)

Then, rushed back to KL as whole family went for #GE14 #509 as a responsible Malaysians

Letter's End by Wolfe Bowart, more details in https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/

Letter’s End by Wolfe Bowart 

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing was invited by Divesecity.my to watch the Malaysian 🇲🇾 Premiere Letter’s End recent months

What’s that about❓⁉️

To SiennyLovesDrawing, it’s a meaningful well planned live performance of clown 🤡 theatre cum puppetry ğŸŽ­ comedy through digital media ğŸ’»ğŸŽ¥

Hmm…Definitely an impressive visual composition that weaves together clown 🤡 theater, circus 🤹🏻‍♂️ skill, stage illusion, puppetry ğŸŽ­ & physical comedy🤣😆

Guess what❓⁉️

The playwright cum performer 🤡, Mr. Wolfe Bowart 👨🏼has enchanted the young 👶🏻👦🏻👧🏻 & young at heart through a method of story-telling that is becoming rare during the recent KL International Arts Festival [KLIAF] 2017 in Malaysia 🇲🇾

Letter’s End was honoured with a Helpmann Award ğŸŽ–nomination, the Australian 🇦🇺equivalent of the Olivier AwardsğŸŽ–[in the category of Best Touring Production]. Absolutely it charmed all audiences of all ages in countries around the world ğŸŒŽ

“Although the character 👨🏼in this live performance doesn’t speak ❌🗣, the actor 👨🏼communicates with his body & through musicğŸŽ¶ğŸŽµ, a little voiceover 🗣& the magic of technical theater, the audiences👫👭👬understand what the actor👨🏼 is going through. The word “mime” has traditionally been used to describe the art of creating the illusion of objects & space – eating an imaginary ğŸŽ In Letter’s End, the boxes 📦📦are real & I really eat an apple ğŸŽ Letter’s End is filled with shadow puppets ğŸŽ­, film ğŸŽž interaction, magic & circus 🤹🏻‍♂️acts ~ it’s funny 😂 & heart-warming😊This makes it a unique theatrical experience especially the story is told using stage illusion & circus skills, I’m often asked, ‘How did you do that❓⁉️” shared Mr. Wolfe Bowart

This Helpmann AwardğŸŽ–nominee truly believes that nothing beats a live act to captivate & delight children👶🏻👦🏻👧🏻, especially compared to watching a story unfold on a digital screen💻

At 1️⃣ point during the performance, Mr Bowart 👨🏼 has invited a young audience 👦🏻 to participate onstage. As 1️⃣ of the audiences, SiennyLovesDrawing felt it was a charming moment & of course an interactive move with his audiences👫👭👬for live participation 👍🏻 The boy👦🏻was given a hard hat ğŸŽ© & put immediately to work aka the live action with him 👨🏼in the story telling theatre 😆

Mr Bowart 👨🏼shared further, “I’ve always enjoyed performing 🤡 🤹🏻‍♂️for people; making people laugh 😂 🤣. All children 👶🏻👦🏻👧🏻 are naturally playful.”

In Letter’s End, a man is tasked to burn lost packages and letters in a furnace, a job he carries out meticulously, until an old brown teddy bear falls out of a torn parcel. A memory is stirred. Soon, the man begins to open other packages and letters, and a whole wondrous world unfolds. Letter’s End is a memorable piece steeped in charm and the joy of human interaction. Something we are in danger of forgetting in our reliance on technology to cultivate the sense of wonder, adventure and creativity in children.

It was 7️⃣5️⃣ mins live act & ❌no photo 📸/ video ğŸŽ¥ğŸ“¹ taking is allowed during the show. SiennyLovesDrawing has respected it as she can really put down her digital devices📱& focus in enjoying a great laugh out loud😃😄with all the audiences👬👭👫 attended.

It’s really an awesome 🆒 show not to be missed ya ‼️😃👍🏻

Really wish this acclaimed playwright 🤡 will come & perform in the Malaysian premiere of Letter’s End next year or perhaps every years 😀😉

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 got a privilege to have a photo 📸 captured (Ha…Ha…the crazy 😜 faces) with Mr Wolfe Bowart 👨🏼 after the show

Still recalled 1️⃣ of the famous kids story ~ The Hare🐇🐰& The Tortoise🐢 ~ ❓

It’s remains as 1️⃣ of her favourite💖, how about you❓

SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻loves❤️the way they maintain the old structure of the wooden house,🏠 the roof, the wooden wall, the wooden door🚪,the wooden windows, the front compound etc.

  • Fruit salad 🥗aka buah rojak in Malaysia 🇲🇾 National language ~ Bahasa Melayu
  • Pan-fried bean curdğŸžaka taufu bakar in Bahasa Melayu
  • WaffleğŸ¥žwith ice cream🍦 🍨

The children👶🏻👦🏻👧🏻are free to do anything they love during their stay here at the library

The brothers👦🏻👦🏻were busy exploring the wooden windows

She is touched by the scenes captured in her eyes👀, brotherhood reading, parents-kids 👪👨‍👩‍👧👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👦‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👧bonding moment, children👶🏻👧🏻friendships with card/ board games after boring reading

From her visit, she read about this book called ~ My Grandma 👵🏻book ~

Yeah! Her late grandma👵🏻gave her lots of good advices & coincidently exactly the same as mentioned in the book📒

She was taught since she was a little girl👧🏻, to be nice, what goes around, comes around

She loves greensğŸ¥—ğŸ¥’ğŸ…ğŸ¥•ğŸğŸŽğŸğŸ¥ğŸ¥‘since young👧🏻too, she is still now
