The T4YP ensemble of 2022 presents an experimental and highly interactive texted work as part of their Final Showcase. The piece features a rotating cast that changes performance to performance, flexible seating, and involves the audience’s participation to bring to life the production in Pentas 2, klpac. The work explores themes such as exploitation, matters of class, justice, and invites the audience to examine the systems that keep them running.
The Exception and the Rule (in German Die Ausnahme und die Regel) is a short play by German playwright Bertolt Brecht and is one of several Lehrstücke (Teaching plays) he wrote around 1929/30. It tells the story of a rich merchant, who must cross the fictional Jahi Desert to close an oil deal. During the trip the class differences between him and his working-class porter are shown.
This production of The Exception and the Rule will be performed by the T4YP 2022 Ensemble directed by Tung Jit Yang. Inspired by Brecht’s theories of Lehrstücke and epic theatre - this Pentas 2 production is interactive, features a rotating cast that changes from show to show, and requires the audience to participate in and engage with the performance.There will be no chair seating unless requested as audiences will be required to move from time to time to follow the performance.
ABOUT klpac's T4YP Programme
Young people are the future of Malaysian Theatre and our country. We are driven by the idea that the arts can inspire creative, courageous and confident young people wherever they are and whatever they want to be.
In 2008, klpac launched its landmark youth theatre programme, Theatre for Young People (T4YP), which is now the longest-running English language youth theatre training programme in Malaysia.
klpac’s iconic Theatre for Young People (T4YP) programme provides those between 18 and 25 with almost 300 hours of intensive and holistic theatre training, free of charge, through masterclasses by the industry’s top experts, mentorship and performance opportunities. Since 2008, 166 young thespians have benefited from the programme and T4YP has toured to Sabah, Singapore and Russia. T4YP has been a regular feature in past editions of Asian Youth Theatre Festival and Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival. It has launched the careers of countless theatre makers who are making waves in the industry today, locally and internationally.
T4YP is an entry by audition only programme and auditions are typically held in the first quarter of the year. For more information, e-mail T4YP’s Creative Producer, Ho Lee Ching, via firstname.lastname@example.org
