Asian Theatre Program Hosts Artists in Residence

Two specialists in Randai Theatre from West Sumatra are currently in residence with the UHM Asian Theatre Program. As part of a six-month training project, Mr. Musra Dahrizal and Jasrial Jamluddin are instructing students in Minangkabau music, dance, acting and martial arts.  Along with UHM faculty member, Kristin Pauka, the artists will oversee the production and staging of the traditional Randai play, Sabi Nan Aluih (The Gentel Sabai) at Kennedy Theatre in February 2012.
