A Modern Woman Called Ang Tau Mui
Muka Space and Chintan Theatre
This first instalment of PAMDA’s Malaysian Theatre Series presents a unique combination of Leow Puay Tin’s acclaimed classic “A Modern Woman Called Ang Tau Mui”.
The night opens with audience being serenaded by the evocative music of Lin Dai, Hong Kong’s legendary Movie Queen who inspires Leow’s title character. The second half presents Leow’s play - a funny, poignant story about hope. Ang Tau Mui goes shopping on the day she dies. She sees many things she wants, but doesn’t know what to buy. She talks to us about what makes her happy and sad, who she sees herself as, what her favourite food is and what her longings are. But in the end, does she find what she’s looking for?
