劍魚◉妾 The Swordfish, Then the Concubine
紀傳財 X 羅國文二度合作 → 聯手新編·新譯
藉由史詩改寫挑動歷史的神經，以傳奇寓言辯證人性與文 . 明 . 遷 . 滅。
Singapura is attacked by swordfish! The Sultan asks his warriors to form a line to keep out the threat, but they end up being massacred. Then a boy comes up with a simple idea to defeat the swordfish. It works! What is the boy’s reward for saving Singapura?
When the Sultan dies, his son inherits the kingdom. But the new ruler turns out to be self-obsessed and neurotic. After his favourite concubine has been found guilty of committing unnatural sex, he does something that could result in the destruction of Singapura.
Culled from Sejarah Melayu, these remarkable myths find new life in The Swordfish, Then the Concubine by Kee Thuan Chye.
It is an epic play written to conjure the magic of theatre. It takes ancient myth and transforms it to address present-day concerns like human rights, gender bias, curbs on freedom and the abuse of power. It is full of spectacle, humour and heart. It is really a play about Malaysia today.
This Mandarin translation of the play, directed by Loh Kok Man, marks the first time the play is being staged in Malaysia. Be among the first to catch it and experience what theatre should be – thought-provoking, real and yet magical, basic and yet larger-than-life.
