SYNOPSIS

Swordfish + Concubine by Kee Thuan Chye is an epic production based on the classic Sejarah Melayu (Malay Annals), but Kee turns its ancient story into a lavish and fun-filled piece of theatre about the present.

The story of ancient Singapura attacked by swordfish until it is saved by a boy, and of a young, smart and spirited concubine sentenced to death by impalement - this is made relevant to Malaysia today.

The play is packed with drama, humour, music, movement, silat and, as they used to say in the old Hollywood heydays, "a cast of thousands"! Hahaha!

It incorporates gamelan music performed by the magnificent Rhythm in Bronze - and rap. Yes, rap! Hahaha!

Its staging is inspired by various forms - from bangsawan to Brecht, from wayang kulit to Tarantino, from zapin to contemporary dance.

Its dream cast comprises Malaysia's best actors - Na'a Murad, Sandra Sodhy, Qahar Aqilah, Alfred Loh, Hana Nadira, Arief Hamizan, Amanda Ang, Bella Rahim, Gregory Sze, Iefiz Alaudin, Bright Ong and 12-year-old Joel Timothy Low. In the play, they act, sing, dance and fight. Yes, fight!

Swordfish + Concubine is theatre that appeals to the senses, the mind and the heart. You have to see it to appreciate it.

The play is also being staged in aid of charity, for the family of former RTM Orchestra conductor Ooi Eow Jin.
