M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2020: Mak-Mak Menari by Bhumi Collective (Singapore)
Mak-Mak Menari explores the role of the modern Malay mother in Singapore today, and how dance continues to play a part in their lives. While marriage, motherhood, cultural and traditional taboos, and growing older have impacted their dancing days, the Mak-Mak Menaris have only grown stronger. They continue to find pleasure in dancing together and this project is a tribute to their resilience, told in part by their junior, Soultari Amin Farid, whose own dance career has been shaped by watching and dancing alongside these women.
Mak-Mak Menari is a documentary theatre work with text, Malay dance and videography, curated from the real-life stories and experiences of these Malay Muslim women in Singapore.
