When The World's The Spectator And Kings The Actors

This week we pick the brains of our culture vultures on topics concerning kings, presidents and audiences. Uma offers his take on Michael Wolff's Trump exposé 'Fire and Fury', and what to look out for in it other than salacious gossip. Kam then steers the conversation to how the modern audience has shifted into a more serious and reserved culture of appreciating performances, compared to the lively interactions audiences had back then with the stage and screen. Concluding the themes, Eddin sets the spotlight on the tragedy 'Amangkurat Amangkurat' by Indonesian poet Goenawan Mohamad, and comments on the lack of king-like characters in contemporary life with whom we can empathise as tragic heroes.
