In 2003, Teater Ekamatra created a project with a poor theatre format involving one actor and one suitcase in a performance space. The idea was to show how a play could be effective with minimal setup, allowing actors to captivate the audience simply through storytelling, marrying words with motion.
Projek Suitcase will be presented in Malay.Booklets with English subtitles will be provided.
