Project Brief

pays homage to Mother Earth where human and nature co-exists on the same earth. This performance aims to lend a voice inspired by Sureq Galigo (an -mythological poetic text of the Bugis from South Sulawesi) to Mother Earth although cultural elements and artistic expression unique to each of the artists were incorporated.

I collaborated with artists and dancers from three different countries dancing together, namely Ridwan Anwar (Aco) from Makassar, Indonesia and Atsushi Heki from Kyoto, Japan with four other Malaysian dancers on the same stage, with the objective of finding the common cultural framework among the diversity.

It was first performed in Barru, Indonesia

And later was performed in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
