The Haji Family by Redza Piyadasa (1990)
Redza Piyadasa passed away yesterday, 6:15pm. (GMT +8:00).
Rest in peace...
I was very lucky to be taught by him, even for a short period.
Thank you for your teachings...
"Malaysia has just lost a great artist and champion of the arts, Prof. Redza Piyadasa.
Piyadasa passed away in Kuala Lumpur after a long illness today at the age of 68.
The Kuantan-born Piyadasa was a strong advocate of national unity, liberalism and humanism through visual and performing arts.
He was a founder of the Five Arts Centre, a theatre company dedicated to promoting and nurturing new talents in English theatre." - Chuah
