    A piece of experimenal theatre informed by absurdism and traditional Malay dance, Gadis Ayu Terakhir aims to explore intra-cultural objectification and the identity struggles of marginalised bodies. Informed by personal experiences growing up across the global East and West, GAT interrogates the asymmetrical relationship between the objectifier and objectified. 

    From a migrant-led perspective, colonised frameworks will be examined through story-telling, movement, projection and repetition - ending with a reclamation of identity and a celebration of self.
