Moved by Padi

20-28 August 2016 . George Town Festival 2016 . Macallum . Penang

Rice is central to the way of life of East and Southeast Asia. It embodies nature and culture. It strengthens human/kinship relations at the table. It is a powerful and evocative symbol of the collective self of a people.

Celebrating the centrality of rice to our existence, Moved By Padi is a multi-arts collaborative project led by Aida Redza (choreographer /performer) with Lisa Foo (installation artist /scenographer), Ng Chor Guan (composer /musician), Sarah Ameera (visual artist) and Mao Arata from Japan (choreographer /performer). The project will be produced by GTF 2016, managed by Ombak-Ombak ArtStudio with Production Manager, Tan Hock Kheng (ZXC Theater).

The production initiates a collaborative performance process involving four Malaysian artists – Aida Redza, Ng Chor Guan, Sarah Ameera and Lisa Foo – working together with Mao Arata from Japan. Moved By Padi is a mixed media production that is best described as a creative act. It encompasses visuals, installations and music in an experiential site dance performance to be held at Macallum site.

Moved by Padi transplanted a paddy field into the city of Georgetown, Penang.
