LIVER & LUNG PRESENTS
A NEW MUSICAL SERIES
Black magic, betrayal and the British occupation. Liver & Lung brings its critically acclaimed Relived series to Kuala Lumpur this March.
1940 Malaya. Zabir and Zubaida, a brother-sister duo, have a difficult task at hand. All at once, they are investigating their father’s mysterious death, keeping their family at peace and surviving British rule in colonial Singapore.
What’s worse, Zabir blames their father’s death on Zubaida’s courtship with a British soldier and Zubaida, on the other hand, is convinced that there are larger supernatural forces at play.
Amidst this tragedy, the impending threat of the Japanese occupation casts a dark shadow across the country.
The Fall of Singapore, the first of the Malaya Relived series, is an immersive new three-act musical that seeks to unravel the tenuous foundations that the Malayan cultural identity is built upon.
Prepare to enter a time travelling portal as the show takes place in a beautiful new KL gallery which we have transformed into a dilapitated kampung living room.
In a live-like funeral setting, expect to be serenaded with an eclectic mix of moving, original music, heart-rending streams of contemporary sounds fused with a colonial, oriental twist.
Woven in a colourful tapestry of familiar sounds and smells, this proudly Malaysian musical promises to be a spectacular showcase of our local culture, serving as a reminder of our past realities in the most poignant of means.
