Kepaten Obor

Kepaten Obor

Lives laid parallel in a cosmic intertwining of fates, interrupted only by the tragedies of life.


When she first found her voice at a young age, she always wondered where it came from. She embarked on a journey to seek lineage, to make meaning of a gift passed from one generation to another despite the obstacles that littered her path. Commissioned by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Kepaten Obor is a multi-disciplinary one-woman performance by Suhaili Safari, featuring a heartfelt monologue intertwined with dancing, singing and original music compositions, supported live by musicians Danial Ahmad and Isyraf of sl_owtalk.

An original script based on Suhaili’s own story, Kepaten Obor is a reflection of the ties that binds grandparents and their grandchildren, an unspoken energy that cannot be severed come what may.

Kepaten Obor is directed by Adib Kosnan and co-written by Agnes Christina and Suhaili Safari.
