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 🎭 comedy through digital media 💻🎥
Hmm…Definitely an impressive visual composition that weaves together clown 🤡 theater, circus 🤹🏻♂️ skill, stage illusion, puppetry 🎭 & physical comedy🤣😆
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 🎖nomination, the Australian 🇦🇺equivalent of the Olivier Awards🎖[in the category of Best Touring Production]. Absolutely it charmed all audiences of all ages in countries around the world 🌎
“Although the character 👨🏼in this live performance doesn’t speak ❌🗣, the actor 👨🏼communicates with his body & through music🎶🎵, 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 🍎 In Letter’s End, the boxes 📦📦are real & I really eat an apple 🍎 Letter’s End is filled with shadow puppets 🎭, film 🎞 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 Award🎖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 🎩 & 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 🎥📹 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
