The Theatre – What Is Teater Macam-Macam?

Be Bilingual
Lets celebrate the bilingual nature of today’s Malay children and create a positive, conducive environment where kids will be encouraged to speak comfortably and fluently in both languages

Be Creative
An incubator of change, Teater Macam-Macam hopes to re-invent and re-interpret Malay sensibilities that exist in our tradition, values and beliefs so that our children can learn to find new ways of appreciating them. 

Be Confident
At the heart of Teater Macam-Macam is our vision to create an academy of the arts for Malay children and young people that is artistically challenging, collaborative, engaging and nurturing. 

Show Summary

Performance 1:
Ketam & Kaloi – A Puppetry Performance by Siti Khalijah
