About the Show
Memories of Walking in Pekan Vol 2.0 is a site-specific performance that seamlessly integrates the environment of an old street with the art of performance. By utilizing ordinary street scenes, it showcases the unique charm of the neighborhood through physical performing arts. The interactive elements of the performance offer the audience a chance to experience a completely new environment theater in specific locations. Each site incorporates the local streets and indoor surroundings into the performance, ensuring that every show is one-of-a-kind and engages with the audience. The journey concludes with a heartwarming finale in the backyard of the Yum Seng eatery and café, where everyone gathers to enjoy the environment theater in this beautiful evening.
