one person show world premiere

We Are Nothing Without Hantu-Hantu is an original solo piece that will follow a Malay-Muslim woman, Chomel, navigating the hantu-hantu (ghosts) of her mother, her grandma, and herself. Chomel, named after the Pontianak by her horror-loving grandma, must face her grandma’s unhealthy horror film obsession, her mother’s almost Pontianak story, and her own unwilling initiation into Zombie Land. All these unfold with the Pontianak, the most feared female ghost, lurking ever so close, making her presence felt with her own tale to tell.
