KENDURI KENDARA

A theatrical feast of food, identity, love and discontent.
Presented by The Keepers Studio

As part of a wedding kenduri, a newlywed couple’s family usually invites guests to feast, to greet the couple, and also to visit the couple’s bedroom. Kenduri Kendara guides audiences through the same three settings to explore the themes of gender, faith and the frailty of human connections within these intimate spaces.

This 3-in-1 interactive presentation consists of a play, an experimental self-portrait, and a mutual feeding ritual:

SAMAR
Audiences enter the home of a young Muslim couple and follow their marriage. Obliged to marry after she found herself with child, they build their lives together—as any other couple do—with love and laughter, as well as secrets and dreams of a life beyond. As audiences journey with them over a decade, we bear witness to what a marriage does to two individuals.

Featuring Boh Cameronian Arts Awards winner Nadia Aqilah, and introducing Surnia Fizul. Performance takes place in Malay language, with English surtitles.

GEROBOK
Audiences explore the cultural object of the tudong and perform their own gender, memories, and identities through it, finally capturing it all with a self portrait.

SUAP
Audiences are invited to feed each other through a very local way of transmitting food to mouth, that is, by hand. (Audience who prefer not to participate are welcome to observe). What will we transmit besides food? What taboos are we willing to let go of for a deeper connection?

Ambitious yet intimate, Kenduri Kendara is a boldly conceived and unflinchingly relevant piece of theatre by a new Malaysian creative collective. Set up by two theatre friends Azzad Mahdzir and Tan Hui Woon, The Keepers Studio represents their hope to bridge activism with artistry, the political with the personal, and audiences with one another.

KENDURI KENDARA

3 persembahan dalam 1 acara.
Perihal jiwa, identiti, mulut dan perut.
Dipersembahkan oleh The Keepers Studio

Selayak kenduri kahwin, pihak keluarga pasangan pengantin lazimnya mengundang tetamu untuk menjamah jamuan, menyapa pasangan, dan juga menjenguk bilik pengantin yang diraikan. Kenduri Kendara membawa penonton melusuri tiga tetapan yang sama untuk meneroka tema-tema seperti jantina, kepercayaan dan kerapuhan hubungan manusia dalam ruang-ruang yang intim.

Persembahan interaktif tiga serangkai ini menghimpunkan sebuah drama pentas, acara potret eksperimentasi, dan upacara menyuap makanan:

SAMAR
Penonton menjengah masuk ke dalam rumah pasangan muda. Setelah kehamilan, pasangan Muslim ini mengambil keputusan untuk berkahwin. Seperti pasangan lain, kehidupan mereka dibina dengan cinta berselang cabaran, dan rahsia bersilih harapan. Penonton menjadi saksi lebih sedekad perubahan dalam kehidupan dua individu yang mendepani dunia perkahwinan.

Menampilkan pemenang Boh Cameronian Arts Awards Nadia Aqilah, dan memperkenalkan Surnia Fizul.

GEROBOK
Hadirin akan meneroka tudong sebagai objek budaya dengan mendasari jantina, identiti dan kenangan peribadi mereka sendiri, sebelum mengakhiri pengalaman dengan merakam potret diri.

SUAP
Penonton dijemput menyuap makanan menggunakan tangan, di antara satu sama lain. (Yang memilih untuk tidak mengambil bahagian dialu-alukan menjadi pemerhati). Selain makanan, apakah pertukaran lain yang akan berlaku? Pantang larang apakah yang sanggup kita redahi demi hubungan yang lebih mendalam?

Berskala besar tapi intim, Kenduri Kendara ialah teater yang berani dan amat relevan, dipersembahkan oleh kolektif kreatif tempatan baharu. Diterajui Azzad Mahdzir dan Tan Hui Woon, The Keepers Studio memacu harapan untuk menghubungkan aktivisme dengan kesenian, politik dengan peribadi, dan penonton dengan satu sama lain.
