Tales of the Swordfish by Main Wayang is a multidisciplinary production that brings together the playfulness of the traditional wayang kulit (shadow puppetry) with digital animation, theatre, VJ-ing and ‘live’ music. Mentored by and working hand-in-hand with Kuala Lumpur-based theatre group Main Wayang, beneficiaries of Singapore’s The Business Times Budding Artists Fund as well as young talents from The Malaysian High Commission take on a lead role to provide an alternative retelling of the popular Singapore folktale of the swordfish that is sure to enthrall audiences young and old.


This event is supported by Singapore International Foundation, the key programme partner of CEX’s Arts & Healing programme.
