As part of The Artists’ Space Season 2002, celebrated classical dancer Zaridah Abdul Malik will perform Dance of the Weave with her dancers while accompanied by cellist, Pak Yosbar.
Her muse (as indicated by the title) is the songket fabric woven by Habibah Haji Zikri, which she feels, reveals and glorifies the gracious female psyche.
‘Woman Alone’ is based on Sita of the Ramayana who is abducted by the demon Ravana. She pines for her beloved but when help does not come, she uses her own resources to secure her freedom.
‘Processions, Weavers, Initiation and Pure Dance’ fuses classical styles with contemporary dance to capture the eternal joy and serenity inspired the songket pieces.
