Gelanggang Teater Kota Seni PJ (Petaling Jaya)

Gelanggang Teater Kota Seni PJ is a competition of traditional, modern and contemporary theatrical performances between NGO groups under Majlis Teater Selangor (MTS), Malaysia. The prime objective of this competition is to jockey for Selangor’s Chief Minister’s Cup. Last year i.e. 2018, the Gelanggang Teater Kota Seni PJ’s competition has been successfully staged between 25th until 29th September at the Civic Hall’s Auditorium of Majlis Perbandaran Petaling Jaya (MBPJ), Selangor with the cooperation of Majlis Teater Selangor (MTS), Malaysia.

Sepurnama Pekan Seni

Sepurnama Pekan Seni is a program that introduces and re-establishes the Malay’s art, culture and civilization to the whole world of which also comprises the introduction of the Malay customs, Malay martial arts and Malay language through mediums like fashions, craft’s tools, music, traditional Malay songs and dances. The uniqueness of Sepurnama Pekan Seni is that the majority of the crews that participate in the staging of this performance are coming from the group of marginalized youths of whom are also part of the NGO’s members under Majlis Teater Selangor (MTS), Malaysia.

The Sepurnama Pekan Seni’s program is a big effort by Majlis Teater Selangor (MTS) because it unites the marginalized youths with the general society. The term marginalized community in this context is defined as youths living in urban areas of whom are categorized as urban poor. Urban poor comprises people who dwell low cost homes, slums and earning below RM3,000. The age’s ranges for this group of youths are between 15 years to 30 years old, alongside poorly educated, low aspiration in the context of self-motivation, easily unnerved and coy albeit talented, illiterate, lowly skilled and needing support as well as guidance from the whole society as to make them human capitals for arts of the future. Therefore, the effort of Majlis Teater Selangor (MTS) is to nurture them with methods and skills, aesthetically and ethically educating them in Malay’s arts and culture, until they are able to stage renowned performances all over the world. Staging between countries across the globe is a cross-cultural program in order to introduce the Malay’s art, culture and civilization internationally. Among the countries that shall be visited for staging this program includes:

1. Japan

2. Taiwan

3. Turkey

4. Indonesia

5. Africa

Risks & Challenges

Theatrical staging is only limited to certain audiences. In order to attract more audiences, bigger sponsorships are vitally required. This is because bigger sponsorships can mobilize greater and exotic performances especially that concerns stage’s architecture and decorations.

The critical issues in staging traditional theater is the big cost in production and stage. This is due to the overall aspects of production of which they are huge and expensive where it consists costumes, musical instruments, sets and props that exactly copying the antique ancientness.

Other challenges and obstacles include the unwillingness of millennials to deeply explore the techniques of theatrical staging and also the lack of interest in learning the staging of traditional theaters. Major efforts have to be carried on to attract these millennials or youths of the new generation to love these ancient arts and cultures. And such major and big efforts have been born by Majlis Teater Selangor (MTS), Malaysia albeit small their financial resources. Therefore backups and supports from the international publics are crucially needed to manage and run these annual art’s programs.
