DiverseCity: ASEAN Monologue Performances and Poets’ Forum

Things to do
Kompleks JKKN

This forum features prominent monologists and poets from the ASEAN region such as Asia Ramli Prapanca from Indonesia, Zefri Ariff from Brunei, Noor Hasnah Adam from Singapore, and many more. One notable monologist is Malaysia’s very own Khalid Salleh (better known as Wak Khalid), who has toured various parts of Indonesia with his works. Drawing inspiration from his early days of selling medicine by the sidewalks of Jalan Masjid India and Benteng in the 1970s, Wak Khalid’s ‘Monolog Jual Ubat’ is a subtle satirical take on Malay society and culture.
