Kebaya Homies (2020)

15 January 2020 – 19 January 2020 @ Annexe Studio, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay


Welcome to the club! Make yourself at home, but this is not your house. Don't forget to tip us! We are your perempuan-perempuan joget (dancing girls) Zubaidah and Rukiah. Do you like our kebaya? Come to our club and we will share with you our stories and songs. Our show is not like other shows. This is a time travel show. We will bring you to the past—during the heyday of the 1960s - and to the future. You want to dance? Later we can dance. First, sit down. And enjoy the ride.

Directed by Alvin Tan, and performed by Aidli Mosbit and Siti Khalijah Zainal, Kebaya Homies is a delightful musical romp weaving through Malay history and culture, told through the elegant yet coy kebaya. The script by Haresh Sharma also includes scenes from his past plays written for the actors.
