Acting Aspect in Bangsawan Theatre
Abdul Samat Salleh
Bangsawan is a traditional improvised form of Malay theatre. In this book the author points out that several modern performances mix bangsawan techniques with other dramatic forms. He therefore sets out to explain, by analysing various set pieces in detail, the essential non scripted nature of bangsawan and how modern actors can employ the improvisation techniques so as to improve modern bangsawan style. 397 pages with a bibliography.
