Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram) is organising a charity theatre production
entitled Dreams Alive,from April 15 to 24, in aid of the Kuala Lumpur
Society of the Deaf. The event, which is partly sponsored by British
Council, is about the importance of movement in communication and the joy of
sign language as a way to express oneself.
Dreams Alive is inspired by the Universal Declaration for Human Rights
(UDHR) statement, which states that every person has the right to maximize
his or her potential through education and employment. It is hoped that
Dreams Alive will encourage more people to learn sign language, further
integrating the deaf community into mainstream society.
Various pieces make up the show, which begins with arts organization Little
Toe Rag presenting a mime entitled "Dreams Alive." Performers will mime,
act, dance and bang sticks on the floor to create the rhythm which moves the
piece, a fusion of physical and rhythm theatre.
Through the main character's journey, different genres or movements will be
presented, from capoeira to traditional, jazz to ballet, and finally to sign
language. Other artists contributing to Dreams Alive include Nora of
Intoxicated, Adlin of This Body Broken, Celestar Studio of Performing Arts,
Sabrina Hassan and Sonia.
