Bicara Titian Budaya

In collaboration with My Performing Arts Agency (MyPAA), Titian Budaya hosted Bicara Titian Budaya on 12 Dec 2015.

Bicara Titian Budaya underlines the spirit of partnership, collaborations and co-operation between the two countries through a 1-day dialogue which explores cross-cultural expressions, and highlight shared cultural and entertainment traditions and icons familiar to both countries.

Here are highlights from that excellent day.


T’was an amazing showcase when Serunding was performed twice at Black Box, Publika on 12 Dec 2015. Here are some photos for those who missed a great performance. We also had a Q&A session between the playwright and performer with the audience.

Written by Ahmad Musta’ain Khamis
Directed by Lim Yu-Beng
Performed by Aidli ‘Alin’ Mosbit
First produced by TheatreWorks (Singapore) in partnership with the South East Community Development Council, Singapore

Winner of TheatreWorks’ 24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2010 (Open Category), this one-woman play stirs to life the voice of Safiah. A Malay homemaker, Safiah’s belief as a devout Muslim and parental expectations falls into conflict with her children; she also suffers tedious ties with her mother-in-law ‘Sofea Jane’. Told through humour, food and many phone calls, Serunding draws us to the heart and pain of a mother’s love. A spicy sweet expression of the Singapore family today. Performed in English.

Titian Budaya Night: Crossing Cultures

If you missed out on the debut of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra performing alongside Taufik Batisah, Jeremy Monteiro, Jatinder Singh Bedi, and Kumpulan Sri Campuran at Dewan Filharmonik Petronas, here are some photos to relive the night.
