NOTHING WITHOUT YOU

– The next 30 years and beyond with Teater Ekamatra


In line with our 30th year milestone, we aim to raise $30,000 to continue our work in preserving, celebrating, and fostering Malay theatre, and also increase our impact on the youth through education & development programmes and outreach initiatives.

HERITAGE OF MALAY THEATRE


Teater Ekamatra sits in a unique position in the theatre industry, and the support from this campaign will allow us to preserve the past, celebrate the present, and foster the future of Malay theatre.

Through archival and retrospectives, we aim to provide the public with a 30-year history of Singapore Malay theatre. These stories are an important reflection of the social changes in society, and no one else has privy to these scripts except our company.

IMPACT


The process and result of archiving is also to useful to help us – and others in the industry – to look through our past and learn from it, and to understand our progression and evolution as Malay theatre and as a company. We feel that the only way forward is to look at our past for learning points – this will help us to understand how to evolve further and progress better from here.

This preservation is especially important as there are very little archived materials in relation to Malay theatre/performing arts. We need to provide the next generation of theatre practitioners, art organizations, academics, and the general public access to our archives, with hopes that it will be carried on and the archival process will continue in the future.

Creating new works and providing a platform to nurture new talents also creates a longstanding impact on the theatre industry, eminently for minority individuals and stories, to create diverse art that is inspiring for all.

YOUTH EDUCATION & DEVELOPMENT


In line with Teater Ekamatra’s commitment to encourage diversity and inclusivity, and our guiding value of people-centredness, youth development is an important part of what we do, and our current and future core programmes are dedicated to youth outreach, incubation, and exposure.

Outreach Programmes:

  1. merEKA (Youth Theatrical Incubation Programme)
  2. Playwright Mentorship Programme
  3. Eklectic Series (Experimental Platform)
  4. Arts Education Programmes

IMPACT


Each of these programmes have specific aims to improve and develop youth through the arts, and also incubating talents for the arts.

For example, the Arts Education programmes include the encouragement of free self-expression through creativity, that helps the youths to effect change and growth through the use of art materials and art methods in a supported and safe environment.

Additionally, programmes like merEKA (Youth Theatrical Incubation Programme) aims to nurture young enthusiasts into committed professionals, with extensive knowledge of theatre, through industry exposure and close mentorship.

We believe that these programmes will continue making a positive impact. When youths are positively impacted, their families, schools and communities will, in turn, be strengthened.
