Marcella Zalianty is busy being a producer of a theatrical performance Jalasena Laksamana Malahayati.
Not only being a producer, Marcella also played in the theater by playing the character of Admiral Malahayati.
Marcella feels that acting in a theater stage is different from acting in a movie.

“In my opinion, stage actors need high concentration because the performances are performed live, without rehearsal, much more than films,” said Marcella in the Cilangkap area, East Newsdelivers.com, on Tuesday (30/8).
“Performing on stage is harder, filming is harder, but more than that because life and death on stage doesn’t repeat itself, live on stage, so the intensity of the tension is higher,” he continued.
Not only that, Marcella also assessed that there were certain difficulties that distinguished film production from theater.
“In terms of production there is also a lot to pay attention to, not only the creative and technical aspects but also involving such a large team, how our energies can be united,” said Marcella.
Marcella played the role of Admiral Malahayati, an Acehnese hero who became Indonesia’s first female admiral.
Marcella admitted that she was amazed at the struggle of Admiral Malahayati in fighting against Portuguese and Dutch colonialism.
“Malahayati is an important and interesting figure. She is the only female commander in the history of the Indonesian navy who was very influential in the military politics of the Kingdom of Aceh Darussalam,” said Marcella.
“Malahayati is present as a female spirit who represents no longer the land that waits and grows, but the sea that speaks courage,” he continued.
Apart from that, Marcella did research to explore this hero.
In fact, Marcella did the research for about 2 years.
Researching her form helped me to get inside of her, so inevitably I wanted to experience the story of Malahayati’s journey more deeply. When I first read the script, ouch, I cried because I could feel what he was fighting for,” concluded Marcella.
The Jalasena Laksamana Malahayati theater performance will take place on Saturday, September 9 2023 at Graha Bhakti Budaya, Taman Ismail Marzuki, Menteng, Newsdelivers.com.
