NUANSA’09: Sitti Nurbaya – Unfulfilled Love, was based on Marah Roesli’s famous Indonesian novel with the same title. This time, the culture of the Minangkabau, West Sumatra, was chosen as our production’s main cultural theme. The story itself revolved around the love story of two teenagers, Samsul Bahri and Sitti Nurbaya in the early 20th century, when forced-marriage was commonplace in Indonesia. 
Only our second production, NUANSA’09 became the first of our productions that was fully staged in English, affirming our vision to reach out to the Singapore community as a whole. Like the previous NUANSA, this performance was also staged free of charge in the University Cultural Centre (UCC) Theatre, NUS, which again successfully attracted more than 400 audience.
