Sekolah Main Wayang (Rakan Muda Edition)

Main Wayang was initially conceptualized for a 45-minute performance for the Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) Festival 2014, and was later reworked for another showing at the Yayasan Sime Darby (YSD) Arts Festival 2014.

Inspired by these shows, the team behind these productions then conceptualized a community art project in the form of a series of workshops for teenagers called Sekolah Main Wayang. In 2015, the workshops were conducted in 3 secondary schools in rural or semi-rural townships across the country – in Putatan, Sabah; Sematan, Sarawak; and Alor Setar, Kedah – under the aegis of the Rakan Muda creative mentorship program under the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

The performances conceived by the workshop participants were presented at Pesta Belia Putrajaya 2015.
