Pentas Budaya 2019
Pentas Budaya is an annual Malay theatrical production that uses theatre as a platform to discuss important issues pertinent in the Malay society. The theatre play provides an avenue for the audiences to think critically about the society and its systems, and thereby educating the public on the issues discussed in an entertaining manner.
Selubung tells the story of a group of friends as they navigate their final year in university. When Najwa’s big secret is revealed, the group find themselves at crossroads as they grapple with issues of faith, friendship, and agency. The script, written by PB19’s very own committee, deals with questions relating to the female body, the right of choice and religiosity. We aim to recognise and acknowledge the multiplicities of lived experiences with regards to issues that are often left ignored and to provide a nuanced perspective. We would also like to highlight the importance of seeking help as well as the responsibility others have towards their loved ones.
Selubung* will be held in Malay with English surtitles.
*This play is rated and may portray mature themes. Viewer discretion is advised.
