5IVE : ABU (2015)

written by hazwan norly

SYNOPSIS

One woman, one man, two souls bounded by blood, and history. Abu is a play that examines the fates of two siblings in the aftermath of domestic abuse. How does one move forward from death? And more importantly, how does one rise from the ashes and remains of a place that is supposed to be one’s home for so long?

5IVE is the graduation showcase for the first cohort of Teater Ekamatra's Playwright-Director Mentorship Programme, the anticipated follow-up to 1234 staged last February. The showcase presents a double bill of plays by Hazwan Norly and Nabilah Said, accompanied by set design by Moses Tan. During the course of the programme, these young artists have received guidance from theatre veterans such as Zizi Azah, Irfan Kasban, Mohd Fared Jainal, and Alfian Sa’at, and hope to forge their own paths in the industry in the future.
