Hai Ki Xin Lor: You Mean the world to me. Hokkien Play by Saw Teong Hin at Khoo Kongsi

One of my favourite performances was Hai Ki Xin Lor: You Mean the world to me. A Hokkien dialect Play by Saw Teong Hin set in the compound of the famous Khoo Kongsi. It’s semi autobiographical story about family secrets and their relationships with each other. The play is in Hokkien dialect with subtitles. It was a powerful performance, the script was clever and concise. The set was simple yet effective. The audience was captivated for an hour watching this brilliant play in the most beautiful outdoor setting.

There were so much activities over the weekend that I didn’t have time to see them all. I’ve randomly included some photos of the ones I went to
