ICAF Theatre competition.
This is the chance for us to strike back, to search for glory after what happened during MEFEK.
We had been planning for this competition for quite a long time, and we really meant it. Researches had been done, brainstorming had been through which resulting in our own story, our own piece, or rather been called: masterpiece. The title is "Love Suicide", a bold but deep story that depicting a man living in delusion world after being the victim of a suicidal love.
And so we formed our production team, we picked the actors and actresses and begun the training. It was not as smooth as we wanted.. obstacles exist, nonetheless we still move on. Yes, there were weaknesses, mistakes and carelessness in our production.However, to say that we were a disaster, that was bullshit. Same goes to us. Never self- acclaimed that we are perfect, or better than good because if that ever happened, it means we are such a bunch of rock-headed arrogant kids. Remember that.
The day had came. We were ready, and we delivered our best. We were hoping, praying and dreaming of becoming the champion but God knows better. Instead, He gave us the 2nd place. Dissappointed? Yes. Jealous? Absolutely...
Rewinding back all the memories, all the efforts we had put together.. I can loudly say that I am very proud of us, DOTters. Each and every one of us had played their significant parts. Missing one, this theater will not be the same as we had wanted.
So, be brave, be strong, accept all the comments and suggestions no matter how bitter they may sound. After all..
