PROJEK SUITCASE 2018



Teater Ekamatra presents Projek Suitcase 2018

ABOUT PROJEK SUITCASE

In 2003, Teater Ekamatra created Projek Suitcase, a project with a poor theatre format involving one actor and one suitcase. It is now presented as a site-specific mini-festival of monologues exploring the power of storytelling through the solitary voice. Projek Suitcase is inspired by the medicine man, selling ointments in back alleys, equipped with only his bag and many tales to convince his audience.

DIE BEFORE YOU DIE

This powerful quote has managed to find its way into many religions, beliefs, and ways of life. It is believed that the wisdom attained upon death reveals the true value of what is important and what is not. Nothing goes with you except the sum of what your life has been. Not your job, not your family, not a suitcase of your prized possessions. We invite you to Die Before You Die with us in Projek Suitcase 2018 at the Wisma Geylang Serai as we look at the contemplation of death, and dying, as an imperative part of life, and living.

Lineup (in no particular order)

FLICKER
Adib Kosnan & Dalifah Shahril [SG]
"Are you sure you want to do that?" "Didn't we talk just about it?" "Don't you remember, we've been here before?" What is it like to question yourself? Your every single thought, your very single decision, your every single emotion. How much of it can you take? Can you trust yourself anymore? Did it really happen or did you just imagine it? From a small flicker, this uncertainty can grow into fear. A fear of losing yourself, bit by bit.

HITUNG
Farez Najid [SG]
The phenomenon ‘life flashes before your eyes’ occur, during a death or a near-death experience, which the deceased or nearly-deceased, rapidly sees the totality of their lives in a Single Moment. Rahman Azman. We have extracted 25-minutes of his Single Moment. 1..2..3..

MATI HIDUP KEMBALI
Fasyali Fadzly & Iefiz Alaudin [MY]
A young man attempts to start a new life after his break up. A mother advises her daughter to choose her life partner carefully. Yet, at the end of it all, they just want to eat fish and drink milk.

KISAH LELAKI YANG MENDAPAT PENCERAHAN SETELAH KASUTNYA DICURI DI MASJID PADA SUATU PETANG
Ridhwan Saidi & Roshafiq Roslee [MY]
An office worker loses his shoes at the mosque and it made him start to ponder the different ways he can head back to the office. He thinks of the relationship between a pair of shoes and the modern society. This ordeal takes place during office hours and prayer time. Between the material and spiritual world.
