Having established itself in Kuala Lumpur with three consecutive years of the annual sold-out series, Tales from the Bedroom and the recently well received Tales from the Jamban, Big Nose Productions has finally come home to Penang with their new series – Tales from The Mamak!

Written and directed by Penang’s very own Fa Abdul, Tales from The Mamak is a collection of ten hilarious scenes at the nation’s all time favourite hangout – The Mamak!

From thought provoking messages to rip-roaring scenarios, Tales from The Mamak touches on subject matters revolving around politics, religion, race, immigrants, the economy, social issues and relationships – because in Malaysia, anything can happen in kedai mamak.

Tales from The Mamak will make you look at yourself in the mirror once more, sometimes with disgust. Malaysia Day celebration doesn’t get any better than this!”

[中文]

從思維挑釁到喧鬧場景,《MAMAK 傳說》將為你揭露最辛辣的政治、宗教、種族、外勞、經濟、社會與人際課題。要知道,這是馬來西亞的 MAMAK 檔,任何傳說皆可行。《MAMAK 傳說》將成為你的良知,照一照鏡子看看是否存有醜惡的影子,尤其在這普天同慶的馬來西亞日!

Apology for the slower upload of additional photographs as my computer and internet was unstable & slow, even with so much money spent by the Malaysian Government buying billions of RM in the purchase Boeing jets and investing in America lately, the internet system is still slow. Heard some comments that even that of Vietnam’s internet speed is faster than us.

From Wikipedia:-

The Malaysian Mamak are Malaysians of Tamil Muslim origin, whose forefathers mostly migrated from South India to the Malay Peninsula and various locations in Southeast Asia centuries ago. They are regarded as part of the Malaysian Indian community. Indian Muslims are believed to have first arrived at Samudera (now Aceh in Sumatra, Indonesia) in the early 10th century. Archaeological findings in Bujang Valley, Kedah, Malaysia suggest a trade relationship with India as early as the 1st to 5th century C.E. An inscription dated 779 AD that refers to the trade relationship between the Tamil country and Malaya has been found in Ligor, Malay Peninsula.

The word ‘Mamak’ is from the Tamil term for maternal uncle, or ‘maa-ma’. In Singapore and Malaysia, it is used by children as an honorific to respectfully address adults such as shopkeepers. The silent K in ‘Mamak’ likely came about as a hypercorrection; since terminal Ks are not pronounced in Malay, a Malay who heard the Tamil word may have assumed there was a silent K at the end.  Although the origins of the word are benign, it is sometimes used as a derogatory term for the Indian Muslim community in Malaysia.

Mamak stalls and Hindu stalls are alike except the Mamaks, who are Muslims, do not serve pork but serve beef, whereas Hindus serve neither beef nor pork. There are also similar stalls run by local Malays.

Raining heavily in Penang since last night thus a lot of low-lying areas are flooded. Miss my dental appointment as road to dentist is flooded. Hahaha, great excuse.

[ENGLISH]

“Life wants to live.”
Phil Hale

What does it mean to ‘reclaim’ the ocean? What do dreams and the man who jumped off the Penang Bridge have in common? How do we move on? What gets left behind? What passes in a moment? What stays and lingers for a little too long?

Riwayat (from “riwayat hidup,” meaning one’s ‘life story’) is devised by an ensemble of performers, designers and musicians. Bringing to stage an experiential piece of movement, text, and soundscape that reacts to the immediate and seemingly unending world around and within us.

[中文]

“生命就是要活著”菲利浦・黑爾(美國印象派畫家)

何謂“贖回”海洋?夢境與一個人躍下檳威大橋之間又有甚麼關聯?我們該如何前進?我們又該捨棄甚麼?甚麼消逝於一霎?甚麼又陰魂久久不散?

《人民傳記》(Riwayat截自馬來文的“Riwayat Hidup”傳記)是由表演者、設計師與音樂家共同體驗並創作的作品,將來自於世界甚至我們內在即時、迅變、生生不息的動作、文本與音景搬上舞台。
