A Great Performance

Hello readers! As you can see on the poster above there was a theatre performance held at IIUM Main Auditorium on the 13th February 2011. It was a Malay theatre and the title is ‘Cintaku Milik Siapa’. In our opinion, the whole production’s crews and actors had done a great job. The performance was very awesome and you would not regret if you watch it. The theatre is about Umar, a disobedient son who has lost his mom which was a huge break for him. He hates his dad and enjoys girl's companies, typical city boy. But, something big happens at a Valentine's eve. Something that changes his view to the world, something that turned him over a new leaf, something that you ought to watch. For those who did not get the opportunity to watch this theatre, here we provide the trailer of this theatre. At least you have the idea how the theatre was. Enjoy it!

What is Theater?

Theatre is a branch of the performing arts. Any performance may be considered theatre; however, as a performing art, theatre focuses almost exclusively on live performers creating a self-contained drama. A performance qualifies as dramatic by creating a representational illusion. By this broad definition, theatre had existed since the dawn of man, as a result of the human tendency for storytelling. Since its inception, theatre has come to take on many forms, utilizing speech, gesture, music, dance, and spectacle, combining the other performing arts, often as well as the visual arts, into a single artistic form.  The word derives from the Ancient Greek theatron  (θέατρον) meaning "a place for viewing."Modern Western theatre derives in large measure from Greek drama, from which it borrows technical terminology, classification into genres, and many of its themes, stock characters, and plot developments.
