Swordfish + Concubine is a play based on two stories in Sejarah Melayu – the one about the swordfish attack that is popularly known as ‘Singapura dilanggar todak’ and another about the Sultan’s favourite concubine who was found guilty of trumped-up charges of wrongdoing and unfairly punished.

The play pays tribute to Sejarah Melayu by sharing with a wider audience the narrative brilliance and profound insights of the classic Malay work. In re-telling the two stories, the production of Swordfish + Concubine uses live music played by a gamelan troupe and draws from traditional Malay dance and theatreforms like zapin, wayang kulit, kuda kepang, bangsawan, dikirbarat, etc.
