Recording for #SeronokUbud ! We will be performing at the Ubud Writers Fest on 12-Oct! It’s one of those things I just got to DO in life!
We’re taking Spokenword to a whole new level.
Vagina Monologue in Malaysia would be “Pukiku berkata”. Things I talk about with Faiz Akhbar during dinner.
After editing a video of my reciting my poem, I realised how much easier it is to perform live. The visual precision on camera is tough.
Performing live, people wouldn’t know if you missed a line. You could improvise. You feed from the audience’s energy. You don’t overthink.
Recording a video, you are by yourself, feeding from your own energy, constantly seeing mistakes that you know you shouldn’t make. Sad.
