LIPSTICK: Series 2 will be organized at Damansara Performing Arts Centre on 10 - 11 October 2015.
LIPSTICK Series 2 brings you a brew of dance and music revolving around the equality of the genders. With last year showcasing the varied spectrums of love enveloping a woman, this year introduces her counterpart. This year’s conception involves the many aspects of impartiality amongst man and woman in their journey, rejoicing in the splendour of unison in life as they traverse its course.
The production further dwells into the subject of sexual assault, a dark shady crisis in Malaysia. With added focus on the alarming rates of rape in Malaysia, LIPSTICK Series 2 showcases what it is to be a victim of sexual abuse and its resulting discriminations.
As commenced last year, LIPSTICK Series 2 continues the efforts to make Bharathanatyam stand relevant and functional to its time in creating necessary change towards the betterment of the society. Musically, the score of LIPSTICK Series 2 is based on a Carnatic music construct with a smart incorporation of contemporary music. Lyrically, this production will exhibit poetic work in various Malaysian languages, further stressing the indispensability of unity among Malaysians in a bid to curb sexual assault and gender inequality in our country. The production also infuses various technical supports such as creative multimedia projections & innovative stage lighting to enhance the viewing experience and to provide the audience with a firsthand view of the issue and its related facets.
Not forgetting the victims of sexual assault in the country, LIPSTICK also serves as a platform to raise funds for All Women Action Society (AWAM) in their efforts to protect these victims and to prevent further victimization of women in Malaysia. LIPSTICK does not just enhance beauty…it has the power to change humanity!
