Noor Effendy Ibrahim
Artistic Director, akulah BIMBO SAKTI

akulah BIMBO SAKTI, or I am the MAGIC BIMBO in Malay, is an interdisciplinary performance collective based in Singapore founded by Noor Effendy Ibrahim in 2016 as part of his Singapore National Arts Council Creation Grant 2015-2016 research. Together with Clarisse Ng, akulah BIMBO SAKTI is Effendy’s playground for his life-long performance research inquiring and examining the vulnerability of the solitary male Malay-Muslim body in the contemporary performance space. Inspired by the world of fetish, relationship between flesh and machine, and sadomasochism, Effendy’s work often addresses issues of gender, sexuality, power, lust and consumption.

An interdisciplinary arts practitioner whose practice spans across various disciplines and roles, Effendy was also the fifth Artistic Director of The Substation (2010-2015), and the Artistic Director of Teater Ekamatra from 2001-2006.

About Artwork

Cinta Tuah Jebat
(The Love of Tuah and Jebat)

The artwork examines the final fight between Hang Tuah and Hang Jebat from Phani Majumdar’s 1956 film Hang Tuah and Hussain Haniff’s 1961 film Hang Jebat through recorded audio playback and live performance. The work hopes to amplify the tension between the two warriors during the infamous fight to the death where they talk of loyalty, betrayal, love, revenge, rage, and desire. The audience will experience an immersive interactive event where they are able to listen to the audio playback in any of the four available languages–Malay, English, Mandarin, and Tamil–and view a site-specific dance on Pulau Ubin, with the actual film location Pulau Sekudu within sight.
