Synopsis

Once upon a time, not so long ago, a prince, an explorer and a girl lived on the idyllic island of Batu Bulat. Whilst each of them led their own exciting life, which at first glance seemed as different as night and day, they soon found out that they were more similar than they were different.

 

Join our islanders as they encounter an adventure together which takes them on different paths but ultimately lead them to understanding what empathy is and that there is always more than one perspective to any story.

 

A Prince, An Explorer and A Girl The Story of Batu Bulat is an adaptation of The Putu Piring Incident at Batu Bulat by Adib Kosnan, Dalifah Shahril, Farez Najid and Sugie Phua. The Putu Piring Incident at Batu Bulat was first presented at Octoburst! 2018 and subsequently presented as a video production at Octoburst! Online in 2020.

PIP Says

If you like mysteries and adventures, you don't want to miss this! This is a text-based performance that requires children and their adults to figure out what really happened at Batu Bulat by watching and listening closely to each character's story. There may be moments when children will be invited to express their opinions and thoughts as part of the performance. It is an excellent opportunity to introduce the idea of putting oneself in someone else’s position and feeling what they are feeling to build respectful and caring relationships.
