Pesta Raya - Malay Festivals of Arts Payung Teduh (Indonesia)
One of Indonesia's rising indie-alternative musical groups, Payung Teduh, makes its way to Singapore this July. For Is (vocalist/guitarist) and Comi (double bassist), what started out as jamming sessions in college became a full-fledged love affair with their self-styled music, which has since flourished with the addition of drummer Cito and “guitarlele” player Ivan.Warm and fuzzy, mellow yet breezy, the signature sound that the four-man outfit has carved out for themselves blends folk, keroncong, pop and jazz with a touch of the ’60s—and their musical horizons are still expanding. Deep and emotionally-driven, the lyrics too have been described as poetry that haunts the mind with a sense of vulnerability.Released in 2010, their debut album, Self-Titled, features the hit song, Angin Pujaan Hujan. The group has gone on to release two other albums, Dunia Batas, and the most recent Live and Loud.Join the boy wonders as they embrace you with lush instrumentation and the songs that their fans hold dear.

The troupe’s award-winning top notch performers, including Plum Blossom Award-winners Pei Yongjie, Wang Xiaochan and Wan Xiaohui, are set to delight all with their dazzling artistry, immaculate singing and spectacular acrobatic displays.Xu Ce Running to the City Wall (Cast: Pei Yongjie)An extract from the Peking Opera classic Xue Gang Rebels Against the Court, it relates how the aged Xu Ce helps avenge the Xue Clan’s sufferings at the hands of an evil official. Performed by Plum Blossom Award-winner Pei Yongjie, whose exuberant singing and impeccable operatic techniques bring out the swelling emotions of the lead character.Meeting the Queen (Cast: Jiang Feng, Chen Xiaoxia)Justice Bao is the legendary incorruptible judge who upholds justice and protects the weak. One day, as he is out distributing relief to the poor, he comes across a blind beggar at a temple.

This excerpt showcases the actors’ polished dramatic singing ability.Monkey King Battles the Water Demon (Cast: Yang Fan, Lu Meng)A water demon wreaks havoc at Sizhou, causing harm to the people.

Pesta Raya - Malay Festivals of Arts Main² Teater Ekamatra (Singapore)
The lives of six pained characters are interwoven together, each checkered by cycles of abuse—physical, emotional and psychological—and rocked by violence, self-inflicted and otherwise. This includes sobering episodes of incest, domestic abuse, lifelong drug abuse and sexual violence.  Underlying this is a deep, simple yearning for happiness and love that they share.  Main2 was commissioned by Esplanade for the very first Pesta Raya – Malay Festival of Arts in 2002, and was the first Malay language play to be staged at the arts centre. Written by Aidli ‘Alin’ Mosbit, it is a warts-and-all portrayal of the Malay community and its social strata, framed by the concept of main, literally meaning “the games we play”.  This new staging is directed by Aidli ‘Alin’ Mosbit, and features a new cast made up of Al-Matin Yatim, Farez Najid, Farhana M Noor, Hatta Said, Munah Bagharib and Suhaili Safari. Bear witness as each character find themselves in “transit” after lifelong games of chasing happiness.
