Synopsis:

ANGKAT: A Definitive, Alternative, Reclaimed Narrative of a Native subverts norms of genre and dramatic form to tell the intertwining histories of a mother and daughter, and a re-imagining of a young Singapura trying to find her footing amidst the rough seas.

Salma, an aspiring singer, is an adopted child whose struggle with identity is played out on a national stage.

Mak, a former islander, tries to process the loss of her home from the mainland, with a little help from some friends.

The play blends fantasy and fact, history and the imagined future, and the national, personal and magical to explore and empower hidden narratives of the Singapore story.

ANGKAT: A Definitive, Alternative, Reclaimed Narrative of a Native was developed in residence at Centre 42's Boiler Room 2015 and Basement Workshop 2018, and Teater Ekamatra in 2016/2017.
