Jebat by Hatta Azad Khan, and its English translation by Nadia Khan, was produced by the Department of Drama at the University of Calgary, in the University Theatre from October 21 – November 1, 2014. This Artist Statement details the research and creative process involved in the production of Hatta’s Jebat. The first chapter contains my background as an artist and my research interest. The second chapter discusses textual analysis with emphasis on Jebat-Tuah as central research. The third chapter focuses on the creative process with the designer and actors. The final chapter is an overview of the production and things that I learned throughout the entire production period as a director.
