Moved by Padi is a multi-arts collaborative project led by Malaysia’s leading choreographer and dancer Aida Redza. With rice being central to the way of life in East and Southeast Asia, the performance depicts a contemporary reinvention of rituals and communal celebrations honouring the semangat (spirit) of paddy and rice as a source of existence and self.
A real paddy field cultivated in the heart of George Town on Macallum Street will serve as the backdrop for the show. Together with her artistic collaborators - Ombak-Ombak ArtStudio, Ng Chor Guan (composer), Sarah Ameera (visual artist), Lisa Foo (installation artist) and Mao Arata (Japanese choreographer and performer), Redza will present visuals, installations and music for this experiential site dance performance.
There will be an opening presentation on 20 August (6:30-7:00PM). No registration required.
