Helmed by award-winning director and performer Mohd Fared Jainal, we are living out our vision of being at the heart of theatre, by staging daring works that address socio-political issues.

Guided by our values of diversity, inclusivity, integrity, accountability, and people-centredness, Teater Ekamatra is committed to our mission of creating engaging art that inspires, as well as incubating emerging talents, and expanding diversity within the industry.

We have a dedicated team of associate artists comprising of video designer, E Lee Loong; playwright / director, Irfan Kasban; actress / host Munah Bagharib; Bharathanatyam dancer, Ruby Jayaseelan; and playwright / dramaturg Zulfadli Rashid.

Our Programmes

We believe strongly that our work contributes to the diversification of local theatre and promotes intercultural understanding. Your support will enable us to foster and nurture artists and youths of diverse backgrounds to realise their potential, produce works that inspire, and cultivate a more perceptive society through the power of theatre.

As a theatre company, we see it as our mission to bring new perspectives to the narratives that define who we are as Singaporeans, and as citizens of the world. In sharing a different perspective, we also hope to provide an insight into communities whose stories are in the background and not often heard. In 2020, we will explore urgent themes around caregiving, mental health, and identity rooted in our everyday performance of gender, ethnicity, religion, and nationality.

2020 marks Teater Ekamatra's 32nd year of preserving, celebrating, and fostering ethnic minority theatre through award-winning productions and successful development programmes which benefit both artists and youths. In this time, we have produced over 150 new works, ran more than 30 development programmes for youths and artists, and worked with more than 1000 artists from diverse backgrounds.
