KITA The Musical Flash Mob

KITA The Musical is organized by Musical On Stage Production, Jabatan Perpaduan Negara dan Integrasi Nasional, Kementerian Penerangan, Komunikasi dan Kebudayaan, Istana Budaya & Xiyue Arts & Culture.

A musical inspired by 1 Malaysia, this story revolves around 3 boys of different races in the early 1970s of Teluk Intan with big dreams and hopes. Along the way we see them going through love, struggles and finally achieving their  dreams. For more read here: http://bit.ly/bZmAj1

KITA The Musical will be held in Istana Budaya from 17 June to 27 June 2010. Seating is located at different prices and students will get a special price to watch the musical at only RM15!
Besides that, students from IACT College will be having an exhibition displaying their artworks, designs etc on the KITA theme. Do check it out when you're in Istana Budaya besides watching the musical!

The students of Event Management class DMC08, 09, 10 & 11 of IACT College was given the opportunity to do promotional activities for KITA The Musical and we've came of with the idea of a flash mob. Flash mobs are pretty common nowadays but it's all about the fun and hype! :)

We collaborated with CausePlay, a flash mob community to help us out with the flash mob. We went around Klang Valley for the flash mob activities on 6th June and 13th June.

6th June (Sunday)
We started our day meeting everyone at KL Sentral at 8.45am. As usual, most flash mobsters started to come in about 9am. We gave everyone their T-shirts and boarded the bus to our first location which is Times Square!
A fun photo session before the flash mob starts.

The starting of the flash mob. Everyone just stood still, blind folded for about 5 minutes. Some passerby stopped and look at the 'scene' caused by us. As I was going around photographing, an ang moh guy came to me and asked what was all of this about.

Singing Negaraku as the first song. We also sang other songs such as Tepuk Amai Amai, Rasa Sayang etc accompanied by the kompang.

Lunch time! Everyone went to the park opposite PKNS Shah Alam for lunch. We had nasi goreng kampung and masi goreng cina. The park was a pretty nice place to chill. After lunch, we boarded the bus again and headed back to KL.

Last location - Lot 10

This was an interesting one as we just stood in one line, hands locked at stood still for 10 minutes. Onlookers were curious and I got to talk to a few interesting people about the musical. That was the end of our flash mob for the day! Everyone slept on the bus on the way back.

June 13th (Sunday)
Less people turned up for this session but it did not deter us from performing our best! We met up again in KL Sentral at 10am. This time, we decided to do a freeze for the flash mob.
1st Location - KL Sentral, 11am.

Guess who we met?

A. Samad Said! We used his poem titled 'Hidup Bersama' for the flash mob activities and we get to meet him in person! Talk about coincidence! Everyone was equally starstruck to get to meet him :) We gave him a pair of tickets to watch the musical!
We love our 28 seater bus! So spacious and comfy ;P / Next destination - Tropicana City Mall!

More random poses. The crowd at Tropicana City Mall was a fun one. Everyone was so excited about it.

Standing still.

Q&A session to win VIP tickets!

Everyone was having fun doing their own freeze posses and it turned out pretty cool.

After the session, some of us went to Expressamente Illy to chill. Awesome place :)

Last stop - Sunway Pyramid

We did the flash mob at the Republic entrance area. CausePlayers left because the bus was only booked til 6pm and our flashmob was only scheduled at 7pm.
