Woman of Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Loh Kok Man, Director | Fairuz Sulaiman, visual artist

Woman of Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

The acclaimed Malaysian play called “A Modern Woman Called Ang Tau Mui” by Leow Puay Tin has had numerous stagings since it was first written in 1993. One of the adaptations that has proven to be very enduring is director Loh Kok Man’s version, which has been staged in both Mandarin and Cantonese. With another staging coming up, Kok Man and visual artist Fairuz Sulaiman - who worked on video art for the show - talk to us about the play’s enduring themes and how it resonates far beyond being the story of one woman.
