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 dreamt of drowning in the ocean before jumping off the Penang Bridge and Bersih 5 have in common? Riwayat (from “riwayat hidup”, Malay for “life story”) asks these questions and brings to the stage a brutally honest, impactful and sometimes hilarious devised piece of movement, multilingual text and original soundscape that reacts to the world around and within us, investigating the shared memories and stories of living and being in Malaysia now.
