This research examines the current status of Bangsawan in Malaysia’s contemporary theatre scene, using the project Semarak Bangsawan as a case study. Semarak Bangsawan (The Invigoration of Bangsawan) is a project organized by Jabatan Kebudayaan dan Kesenian Negara (JKKN [National Culture and Art Department]), a government agency in the Ministry of Information, Communication, and Culture of Malaysia. After completing Part 1 by setting forth a proposed set of conventions, a live performance of Bangsawan will be created in order to test the efficacy of those conventions.
