PONDERING OVER MALAY WEDDINGS, ZAKI RAZAK

The Lecher of Art is a series of performance-presentations that revisits ways of exploring the art of speech while ‘lecherously’ engaging the audience. These seemingly fictional, un-assumed and alternative methodologies of speech and presentation contradict the authoritative, anticipated and doctrinal manners in which lectures are conventionally delivered. seVen: pondering  over Malay weddingsWith the mighty influence of the economy overtaking spiritual self and public pace, our articulatory faculties seem to be held captive; ever submissive to the insurgence of capitalism and never recognising the conflicts of cultural production. From the ‘fixed’ demand of dowry to the monotony and imbecility of wedding reception and rites, what is seemingly ‘clumped’ to a misrepresentation is in dire need to be revised and reformatted. Is there a way to resist a canonical cultural practice and re-introduce a formation of culture, which recognises its criticality and creativity? Zaki and his panel of selected personalities aim to discuss this social phenomenon. 5 April, 8pm-9:30pm at The Substation TheatreAdmission: Free.
