A story of good triumphing over evil, the story of Ikan Girl reminds one of patience and kindness and the perils of engaging in evil acts especially the mistreatment of a fellow being. Inspired by a Malay ancient poem known as the Syair Bidasari, this story will be presented in the form of a multidisciplinary performance that features original contemporary Malay music which incorporates movement vocabulary from Malay dance, Bharatanatyam and contemporary dance genres.
