The Coffin is Too Big For The Hole

Theatre stage

Adapting the original script by Singaporean playwright Kuo Pao Kun to a Malaysian context, this performance starts with an odd situation. A hole is dug for your late grandfather’s coffin but it wouldn’t fit. From there onwards, rhetorical questions follow suit, leading to a conundrum between Malaysia and its people. The performance is part of the Nyoba Kan International Butoh Fest 2015 and is sponsored by Goethe-Institut Malaysia.
