A comical spin on tales of old and new, one dish at a time An immersive dinner theatre experience
A Wayang Kitchen Production
Performances on 13th and 14th January 2023
“A little bit of everything in a single bite…”
After Wayang Kulit was banned in the 90s, comic characters Wak Long and Pak Dogol found themselves out of work, and so started their own restaurant. Now, these cheeky comics come to life to champion the food and stories that make Malaysia.
In this immersive experience audience play the role of new chefs and waiters at Wak Long and Pak Dogol’s restaurant. They feast on Malaysian stories dished out by Wayang Kitchen while enjoying a fine-casual dining experience prepared by venue partner Artisan’s Playground.
Tourists and visitors to Malaysia in particular will find this unique experience satisfying their curiosities about the Malaysian food culture. In this series diners are introduced to the ubiquitous nasi lemak and other signature dishes. The performance takes a comical and sometimes satirical look at the stories around these national cuisines. “We aim to nourish your soul, heart and mind” says director Hester Welch of this production.
Welcome To Our Malaysia! is co-written and produced by Razif Hashim and Hester Welch of Wayang Kitchen and is performed at Artisan’s Playground by Cookhouse located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The production is supported by the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards Grant in cooperation with Kakiseni.
