Show Review | Allegiance SMAK GS

On April 27, 2019 SMAK PENABUR Gading Serpong held its 12th annual Creativity Art Night, Allegiance. The performance was all we could ever hope for from a group of high-schoolers trying to bring back lost history from the dark age for Japanese-American families living in the United States, trying to survive isolation and family separation while their allegiance to their heritage and/or country had to be challenged.

Show Review | Kaeru: Titik Dua di Akhir Nada

On January 25th 2019, Jaksical had the opportunity to watch an exclusive invite-only performance of an original musical production titled Kaeru : Titik Dua Di Akhir Nada, presented by Perkumpulan KataK at Gedung Kesenian Jakarta. The public performance of the production was held on the 26th and 27th with a total of 4 matinee and evening shows. Kaeru’s setting takes place in Batavia in 1942, telling the hardship of a love story during the war era as Japan started their colonization in Indonesia. A young lady Kirana fell in love with a Japanese soldier Hiro, but she was forced to give up on her love and partake in an arranged marriage with a man named Gilang. The entire show was brought in Bahasa Indonesia, including a total of 18 original songs accompanied by live band and orchestra. I loved the detailed touch the company put during pre-show where they played an old radio announcement that immediately transported us back to 1942.

Show Review: Into the Woods by TEMAN

Immersion was swift once the show started, followed closely with awe. The production scored so many points in the technical domain; even though it was the last in the string of three shows, two in the day alone, I could sense no discernible fatigue in the performers, actors and musicians both. Music, lyrics, and book were all interpreted beautifully and with flawless technique. Also, actors playing multiple roles and slaying all of them? Another point that made me shake my head in awe of this production.

Sooper Dooper Trooper: The Musical

Dancing Queen was beautifully sung by Jakarta International Community Choir (JICC) that day on Gedung Pusat Perfilman Umar Ismail in Kuningan, South Jakarta. They engaged with the audience and made everyone in the room singing and even slightly dancing, shaking their shoulders and clapping to the beat of one of the most iconic and evergreen song ever in the history of music. No doubt, that was the solid performance of the night.
