Playwright Nassim Soleimanpour wants you to fill in the BLANK

Playwright Nassim Soleimanpour wants you to fill in the BLANK

No set. No director. A story open to the public and completed by the audience.

A story machine to create new stories every night. Come join us and help us fill in the Blanks.

 

Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour made a name for himself with his play White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, which has been performed by actors such as Whoopi Goldberg, Alan Cumming, and John Hurt. In 2016 The Instant Café Theatre Company staged it in Malaysia in 3 languages using actors such as Sharifah Amani, Kuah Jenhan, Iedil Putra, Ghafir Akbar, and Ling Tang.

 

BLANK — performance curated in Kuala Lumpur by JO KUKATHAS with different performers every night. Every night a different performer is the storyteller and a member of the audience becomes the character, deciding what they want to tell us of their life. The performer will also read from a script he or she has never seen — let alone rehearsed. Some words in that script are, as the title of the play suggests, left blank for the actor and the audience to fill in. And so a new story is created collaboratively and immediately in the theatre every night.

 

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT

NASSIM SOLEIMANPOUR is an independent multidisciplinary theatre-maker from Tehran, Iran. His plays have been translated into 20 languages. Best known for his play White Rabbit Red Rabbit, written to travel the world when he couldn’t, his work has been awarded the Dublin Fringe Festival Best New Performance, Summerworks Outstanding New Performance Text Award and The Arches Brick Award (Edinburgh Fringe) as well as picking up nominations for a Total Theatre and Brighton Fringe Pick of Edinburgh Award.

ABOUT THE BOOK

DIALOG is a major new anthology of Tunku Abdul Rahman’s enduring wit and wisdom, and the response of contemporary Malaysians to it. From politicians to rappers, from young and old, from actors to academics, Tunku’s thoughts, ideas and values continue to resonate, fascinate and illuminate.

DIALOG is a labour of love that has united dozens of Malaysians of all races, ages and walks of life such as artists, photographers, illustrators, writers and others, who have come together to create a book that is a powerful and timely tribute to “Bapa Malaysia”.

M&C Saatchi Malaysia had conceptualised, designed and edited the book with support from organisations such as the One Academy, an art and design college; Projek57, a social enterprise dedicated to keeping Tunku’s values alive; and the Rojak Projek, who had created a spice portrait of Tunku, made up of spices from all of Malaysia’s major races.

M&C Saatchi Malaysia’s chief executive officer and Tunku’s granddaughter, Datin Seri Sharifah Menyalara Hussein, who is the book’s essay contributor, summarised the creation of Dialog as a collaborative “labour of love” across races and religions that would have warmed Tunku’s own heart.  

 

FEATURING: 

– More than 20 individual essays in response to Tunku’s quotes

– Previously untold anecdotes and recollections, plus rare and unseen photos

– Dozens of original illustrations by The One Academy, a leading art & design college

– Specially-composed tribute lyrics to Tunku by Altimet

– A spice portrait of Tunku, made of spices used by all major Malaysian races

– The views of Malaysians aged 5 to 90 on Tunku’s continuing relevance to Malaysia’s future

SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY

“As far as I am concerned, I am not very interested
in politics. I am more interested in administering the
government and looking after the welfare and
the well being of the people and the nation.”

Excerpt from ‘Not your, not my, but our Malaysia’ by Ambiga Sreenevasan

The results of the 9 May 2018 General Election were nothing short of a miracle. Many never imagined seeing the Barisan Nasional government lose power in their lifetime. We must never forget this precious moment in history, achieved after decades of struggle and sacrifice by so many. We now have a functioning democracy and we must cherish this and work hard to ensure we never lose it again.

Much is expected of this new government. We want them to succeed. It is understandable that our leaders are preoccupied with economic issues, tackling corruption and checking abuse of power in the various ministries. Nevertheless, it is also important that this government spends some time focusing on the well-being of all. It was our first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, who neatly encapsulated his own “people-first” philosophy in these words:

“As far as I am concerned, I am not very interested in politics. I am more interested in administering the government and looking after the welfare and the wellbeing of the people and the nation.”

After all, the previous government took racism, discrimination, divisiveness and the oppression of marginalised communities to new heights (or depths)! The people expect this government to govern differently. To unite rather than to divide, and to empower rather than to destroy.

How has this government performed in terms of being a government for all? It has been stated that: “The measure of a civilization is how it treats its weakest members”. Indeed, that must be true, for it is not the strong who need protection, but the weak, vulnerable and the marginalised.

In Malaysia, these include our children, abused women, the Orang Asli community, refugees, religious minorities, the poor, the LGBT community and the stateless, to name a few. How the government treats and provides for these groups will demonstrate whether or not they are and can be a government for all.

Again, we can turn for inspiration not just to Tunku’s words, but to his actual deeds. He wanted all citizens to receive fair treatment. It was largely due to his efforts that Malaysian women in the workforce gradually gained an equal footing with men in the post-Merdeka era.

It was during his premiership that we witnessed the first female civil servants and cabinet ministers, as well as the passage of important laws that established women’s pension rights and right to equal pay for equal work.

On a less official, but no less inspiring level, Tunku demonstrated a life-long affinity for those in society

who were marginalised and vulnerable. Well before he became Prime Minister, he helped to rehabilitate over 100 refugees who had fled the infamous Death Railway in Burma during World War Two.

Even when he was out of power in the mid-1970s, it was Tunku’s compassion for the less fortunate which was the prime mover behind Malaysia’s acceptance of close to 10,000 Cham refugees fleeing the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge.

Each era of Malaysia’s history has presented new challenges concerning marginalised or vulnerable groups. In new Malaysia’s first 100 days, we have been confronted with several such issues.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Suaram adviser Kua Kia Soong has called for the declassification of the official documents on the May 13, 1969 riots. In 2007, Kua had written a book titled “May 13: Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots of 1969.” He republished the book this year to commemorate the dark history. The tragic May 13 broke out three days after the 1969 general election where the Chinese-dominated opposition parties DAP and Gerakan had made electoral gains. Official reports claimed a total of 196 were killed, but British diplomats at the time estimated it to be around 800. 

This is the first credible account of the May 13, 1969 racial riots/program in Malaysia using documents recently declassified at the Public Records Office, London after the lapse of the 30-year secrecy rule.

Since local sources remain classified or have been destroyed, these documents provide the only available confidential observations and memoranda by British and other foreign embassy operative. They include dispatches by correspondents which were then banned in Malaysia.

A social scientist, Kua Kia Soong provides a fresh political analysis of this “May 13 Incident”. In his view, the riots were by no means a spontaneous of violence between Malays and Chinese but rather an orchestrated coup d’etat by the ascendant state capitalist class against the Tunku-led aristocracy. He discusses the contradictions of the post-independence Alliance racial formula and traces the rise of the Malay state capitalist class in UMNO which has ruled Malaysia since 1969.

With this publication, the frequently raised “spectre of May 13” by the Barisan Nasional government to deter any challenge to the status quo has been forever put to rest and the political tsunami of 2008 is proof that Malaysians are finally free from the fear of fascism.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Dr. Kua Kia Soong is a director of human rights organization SUARAM. He was arrested under the Internal Security Act during “Operation Lalang” in 1987 and detained for 445 days without trial. Upon his release in 1989, he helped to found SUARAM (Suara Rakyat Malaysia), a leading human rights organization in Malaysia. 

Together with other civil rights activists, he joined the Opposition Front in 1990 and was elected Opposition Member of Parliament for Petaling Jaya from 1990 to 1995. He was a prisoner of conscience for a second time in 1996 when he spent seven days in prison with other activists for organizing the Second Asia Pacific Conference on East Timor which was disrupted by a mob from the ruling coalition.

He was the Principle of the New Era College, a non-profit tertiary-level institution run by the Chinese education movement (2000-2008); Director of Huazi Research Center set up by the Malaysian Chinese community (1985-90) and Academic Adviser to the Independent Chinese Secondary Schools (1983-85).

Kua received his BA Econ (1975), MA Econ (1976) and PhD in Sociology (1981) from Manchester University, UK. He was a lecturer in sociology at the National University of Singapore in 1978-79.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE BOOK…

“A day after the book hit the shelves, three senators called for action to be taken against the book and Kua, while Deputy Internal Security Minister Fu Ah Kiow said the ministry was studying the contents to decide on a course of action. Ten copies of the book have already been confiscated for “studying” by the Internal Security Ministry from a major bookstore chain in Kuala Lumpur.”

-Andrew Ong, Malaysiakini 18 May 2007 

“The allegations made in the book could stoke racial sentiments… I have been told that (Kua) named certain leaders as people responsible for the riots. That of course can lead to all kinds of unpredictable responses since the leaders he named were apparently not Chinese but Malay. It creates a difficult situation in our fragile society… Khoo said the authorities should have monitored the progress of the book earlier rather than reacting after the book was published… But then people will be unhappy that such actions curb freedom of speech, which is a very relative thing. People have to be careful in dealing with such matters.”

-Prof Khoo Kay Khim, Malaysiakini 15 May 2007

“Banning a controversial book on the May 13 riots will violate the right to freedom of expression enshrined in the Federal Constitution… In an age where information flows freely, constitutional freedoms must be honoured rather than breached. Laws and regulations which purport to grant power to the state to proscribe publications arbitrarily must only be used under the most exceptional circumstances…The book may indeed be controversial but if the government does not agree with the issues raised, it should refute them in an open and transparent manner…More significantly, banning this book will reinforce its thesis that the May 13 riots were indeed caused by a coup plotted by certain leaders to oust (then premier) Tunku Abdul Rahman.”
