Every color is important. Every hue plays a role in turning the bland to beautiful. That’s the exact message of Artist Playground’s Ang Kinang ni Kahlim. Topbilled by Paul Jake Paule as Kahlim, the play tackles the journey of colors in making the world even more beautiful. White, yellow, red and blue were all tasked to color the world, but Kahlim, who represents black, was left with nothing to do because the other colors feel he’s not good enough in almost everything. The message of the play resonated not only to the kids but to adults as well.
While the play centers on colors and caters to mostly kids (as this is a children’s play), it brings us a warm message that every color is vital and has an importance in this world. Directed by Roeder Camañag, Artist Playground’s Ang Kinang ni Kahlim was shown at the Globe Auditorium of the Maybank Performing Arts Theater last January 15, 2017 as part of the BGC Arts Festival.
