Berak by Teater Ekamatra
Synopsis

Berak chronicles the aftermath of a suicide: A grandmother bargains with divine powers to release her son's soul from hell. Failing which, she brings him home; she takes over the reins of bringing up her granddaughter, while keeping her daughter-in-law at bay, saving the granddaughter all for herself. She tries to instill in her granddaughter that death is merely a joke, that there's nothing to cry about as she takes her on a mind trip towards the underworld and purgatory. These personal fantasies of the afterlife are challenged however when her granddaughter contracts a terminal illness. The never-ending days of mourning are brought to lurid 3-dimensional, high-definition life as the agonizing wait for the ultimate redemption is an imprisonment in the realm between living and non-living on earth. Berak is a transcreation of Poop, originally written by Chong Tze Chien and produced by The Finger Players.
 

Adapted by Zulfadli Rashid, Written by Chong Tze Chien, Directed by Mohd Fared Jainal.
 

Performed by: Aidli Alin Mosbit, Fir Rahman, Siti Hajar Abdul Gani, Siti Khalijah Zainal 

Siti gembira melihat sepupu-sepupunya. Kawan-kawan Siti pun ada. Beberapa orang wanita peluk Siti. Bau minyak wangi dan selendang mereka buat Siti pening kepala. Opah beri Siti kuih lapis yang dibawa tetamu dan terus halau Siti keluar ke koridor untuk main dengan sepupu-sepupunya. Ibu sentiasa dekat tapi entah kenapa Siti tak dapat perhatiannya. Ibu asyik senyum sambil tersedu-sedu. Siti cari Ayah. Opah bilang Ayah dalam jamban, tapi Siti tahu semalam Ayah terjun dari tingkap dapur flat mereka. Siti gembira melihat sepupu-sepupunya. Kawan-kawan Siti pun ada. Beberapa orang wanita peluk Siti.
