Speed Dating with Primadona


Traditional musical show

“Jalan Primadona”


recounting her first audition
the hardship of being a Muslim female performer
confronting the harsh adversities of life
perseverance + efforts = a real artist and guru
12 songs + 8 characters solo by Zamzuriah
she’s the actress + singer + poet reciter + composer + teacher
with a group of exotic musical performers
Everything was new to me
Mak Yong, Mek Mulung, Mak Yong Riau, Tari Inai, Silat, Saba
Astonished by her powerful monologues
aspired by her energetic voice
inspired by her sacrifices to art
Searching for followers
to preserve a piece of art

~sorrows of a woman in her “life of arts”
