6 to 9 April: HOPE by Ekamatra
Be immersed in the local arts scene and catch the Malay version of Haresh Sharma’s HOPE directed by Mohd Fared Jainal at the Esplanade this April. For those who don’t understand Malay, there are English subtitles shown during the show.
Synopsis (extracted from sistic.com.sg):
A father, a mother, to a son; and two friends. Human beings, each one of them. Desperate, dejected, whose fate remain undecided, whose dreams remain uncertain, and whose ambitions remain undefined, only because deep in their hearts, the seeds of hope were sown.
“A badly decomposed corpse was found floating on Singapore River early this morning…” Hope, the root word of “hoping”, “hopeful”, “hopefulness”, and the like; a word that serves as the thrust for the condition, the needs, the wants of each and every human being. A father, a mother, to a son; and two friends. Human beings, each one of them. Desperate, dejected, whose fate remain undecided, whose dreams remain uncertain, and whose ambitions remain undefined, only because deep in their hearts, the seeds of hope were sown. Probably, without hope, without hoping, without being hopeful, their lives would be untainted, unscathed, undamaged, and not naked; devoured to the skeletal frames of their existence.
