Rice is central to the way of life of East and Southeast Asia. It embodies nature and culture. It strengthens human/kinship relations at the table. It is a powerful and evocative symbol of the collective self of a people. Celebrating the centrality of rice to our existence, Moved By Padi is a multi-arts collaborative project led by Aida Redza with Lisa Foo, and Ng Chor Guan, and has also featured Sarah Ameera, Mao Arata, and Mislina Mustaffa. The performance at Macallum, Penang, was produced by GTF 2016, managed by Ombak-Ombak ArtStudio with Project Manager, Tan Hock Kheng from ZXC Theater.
