Synopsis

In Malay, kemas means tidy or neat—organised, well-placed, well-managed. But what if this organisation is invisible? What if it cannot be seen?

 

Three woman are tidying: One is tidying to start her life anew, another is organising her past memories before they fade, and the last is collecting everything that she can.

 

Explore the myriad meanings of kemas through the stories of these three women.

Advisory:

This is a closed-door, by-invitation event only.

 

Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places.
