DIE BEFORE YOU DIE
This powerful quote has managed quite its way into many religions, beliefs, and ways of life. It is believed that the wisdom attained upon death reveals the true value of what is important and what is not. Nothing goes with you except the sum of what your life has been. Not your job, your family, not a suitcase of your prized possessions.
Teater Ekamatra invites you to Die Before You Die with us in Projek Suitcase 2018 at the Wisma Geylang Serai as we look at the contemplation of death, and dying, as an imperative part of life, and living.

ABOUT PROJEK SUITCASE 2018
In 2003, Teater Ekamatra created Projek Suitcase, a project with a poor theatre format involving one actor and one suitcase. It is now presented as a site-specific mini-festival of monologues exploring the power of storytelling through solitary voice.
Projek Suitcase is inspired by the medicine man, selling ointments in back alleys, equipped with only his bag and many tales to convince his audience.
