Some weeks ago I wrote about the Macbeth in the Shadows project: a collaboration between The British Council, Pusaka's Eddin khoo, British writer/illustrator Edward Carey and Tok Dalang Dollah Baju Merah. The play was supposed to have been staged at the same time as Theatre Babel's production of Macbeth.
Tragically, Pak Dollah passed away on 26th September. Kakiseni has the full story, and you can read an interview with the puppet-master here.
Malaysia has lost another irreplacable performer of traditional art forms: Pak Dollah's expertise died with him, for he had no apprentice to pass his skills on to.
