Moved by Padi will be organized at Macallum Street on 27th August 2016 - 28th August 2016 (Saturday - Sunday).

Moved by Padi is a multi-arts collaborative project led by Malaysia’s leading choreographer and dancer Aida Redza. With rice being a staple in Asia, Moved by Padi (Malay for ‘paddy’) is fundamentally rooted in the belief that the things in which one cultivate becomes the things that one consumes.
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), they will present a contemporary reinvention of rituals and communal celebrations honouring the semangat (spirit) of paddy and rice as a source of existence and self.
