Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad (KLK) and The Actors Studio Academy presented IPOH.MY – My Ipoh, My Home, recently at the auditorium of SMK Methodist (ACS), Ipoh. There were two performances that day; one in the afternoon, one at night. I attended the night session because there was a special performance by children from Persatuan Daybreak.
IPOH.MY was a final showcase performance of KLK’s Arts and Culture Programme 2011, initiated in January, as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), to bring arts to the people of Ipoh.
With this in mind, KLK brought in The Actors Studio Academy, which sent instructors to six schools in Ipoh over the past few months to teach drama to students and also trainees of Persatuan Daybreak. The six schools involved were SMJK Ave Maria Convent, SMK Main Convent, SMK (P) Methodist (MGS), SMJK Perempuan Perak, St. Michael’s Institution and SMK Methodist (ACS).
The performances were mostly about teenage issues, which I found frivolous because I couldn’t relate to them. I grew up very differently from the typical teenager, you see. Nonetheless, I had an enjoyable night, especially the finale.
