While some may know of Mak Yong, many would not have heard of Mek Mulung though it has been around some 400 years. Even less would know that of the four Sekolah Seni we have in Malaysia, one specialises in Mek Mulung and their performance won first prize in Spain and Beijing.
Sekolah Seni Malaysia Perak will be performing Mek Mulung: Lakhon Dewa Muda which tells the tale of a prince on a mission to bring peace to his country.
Mek Mulung Lakhon Dewa Muda is a form of Malay traditional theatre that describes the heroic life of a single prince. One day, he dreamed a message which required him to hunt sacred animals for the purpose of bringing peace to his beloved country. Hence, the prince acknowledged the message and went to carry out his hunting with his ‘awang-awang’ (his assistants). Along the way, they found a peculiar and sacred fruit. Will he be successful in his triumph to his country? What kind of threats will the fruit bring to the prince and will it be harmful to his journey?
