Mixtape For Maz
27.05.2023 - 03.06.2023
Mixtape For Maz, a play written in English and Northern Malay, tells the story of Maz and Edi, teenage siblings who have returned to rural North Malaysia in the late nineties after years of growing up abroad. Not only do they face the stresses of secondary school life, they must also navigate the contradictions between their western influences (early Internet culture, nineties music and video games) and the conservative society engulfing them. As their identities are challenged and redefined, will they learn to reconcile the shattered fragments of themselves or will they succumb to the temptations of conformity?
*Mixtape For Maz is staged with support from the Hai-O Arts and Culture Grant, the Boh Cameronian Grant For New Productions, and Kakiseni.
