Nabilah Said (Singapore) talks with Jo Tomalin about her plays ANGKAT: A Definitive, Alternative, Reclaimed Narrative of a Native and yesterday it rained salt.
“Said is a playwright, arts writer and poet. Her plays have been presented in Singapore and London by Singapore theatre companies Teater Ekamatra, The Necessary Stage and Bhumi Collective.”
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.”
yesterday it rained salt “Goodbyes are rarely good. And memories can be tricky things. Azman returns to his island home only to be greeted by new sights and vanishing landmarks. Nothing seems familiar, until it starts to rain.”
