  • Alisha/Alysha


    Alisha/Alysha are Malaysian-born artists whose work explores body politics, critical race theory and the impact of colonialism manifested through perceptions of the self. 

    We utilise experimental theatre as a vehicle for social change, showcasing a unique perspective of objectification theory that has limited occupancy within dominant culture.

    Theatre for the diasporic community: Investigating an alternative lens

    Gadis Ayu Terakhir (The Final Graceful Woman) is informed by absurdism, folklore, and forms of Malaysian theatre including Wayang Kulit and Mak Yong. Alisha + Alysha reveal the inspiration behind their return to the ritualistic.

    Tobi King Bakare and this theatre deserve a shout-out for such a young, diverse audience. There is so much talk about audiences being full of over 60s and why, why can’t theatres get the crowds in to reflect society in general? Well, I’m happy to say that on a rainy Thursday evening, the theatre was completely full.
