What does it mean to ‘reclaim’ the ocean and cut down trees for a highway, a mall, and progress? What does it mean to be a man and a woman? What does the man who dreamed of drowning in the ocean before jumping off the Penang Bridge and Bersih 5 have in common? Directed by Tung Jit Yang, Riwayat asks these questions and brings to the stage a brutally honest, impactful, and sometimes hilarious devised piece - of movement, multi-lingual text, and original soundscapes - that reacts to the world around and within us, investigating the shared memories and stories of living and being in Malaysia now.
